So I finally got to visit an elementary school and do some activities in the library with students. While the library is quite small in comparison to our Tudor Elementary Library, it is quite impressive, as books can be found in Arabic English and French. Spending time with students in the library was lots of fun!
Instead of students having library cards, there is a card for every book in the library and the students name goes on the card when they check it out.
I wrote a message in the book that we were donating to the school so that they can always remember Alaska.
Moroccan students really like the pictures that Alaskan students made for them and we’re happy to make pictures in return.
These teachers are fabulous, exciting, kind, and looking forward to connecting their students with Alaskan students.
Here are some students working on their art:
I had such a great time at the school that I didn’t want to leave. The students were so lovely to work with. I hope indeed to come back someday soon!
Looking at the pictures from your visit to the Agialsouss library, I absolutely love the way they utilized the bookshelves on the walls. What a creative way to display books at eye level, making it so much easier for the kids to see books they might be interested in. It’s SO incredibly cool that you are connecting your school with this school and sharing the many similarities and differences among the different countries. And books in so many different languages, that is truly amazing!
I am sooo excited to see you sharing your own experiences abroad with your students in Anchorage…it may even inspire Alaska kids to dream about foreign destinations and strive to go on a similar trip someday! Then the learning would certainly come full circle.
That’s absolutely what I love about exposing them! I hope to do that even more and encourage students to explore the world. I love that you teach in an environment where students can also be exposed to so many great parts of the world and embrace kindness!
it was our pleasure having you with us that day, the kids were very happy and they kept asking about you and Nell,they loved spending time with you…. and they got a chance to practice their English….i hope we can connect our students together soon.
Christian’s Kindergarten class wondered if they have comics in Morocco like our graphic novels
Here in Morocco, students really like Manga and Japanese Anime, which is similar because it tells stories with pictures. I am bringing home a graphic novel in the native language of Tamazight. It is pretty amazing what the writing looks like!
You are very good artists! 🎨
We only have one language in most of the books and sometimes Spanish
