International Children’s Day Celebrations for Your Classroom
International Children’s Day is here. This a day where we get to celebrate children all over the world, it’s a day that we also use to spread awareness of togetherness with children worldwide and focus on improving children’s welfare.
Knowing that elementary schools are populated with young children, it’s the perfect opportunity to do something with children in the classroom for International Children’s Day. Let’s show our young children what they can do to celebrate themselves on this special day.
The first idea you can do is to create a garden with all of the students in your class. Creating a school garden is a great way for all of the children who attend the school to interact with each other. It will also teach the children to be hands-on and become creative thinkers when being gardeners. This suggestion will help students have a memorable experience of some fun they had in school.
I know that there are some days when kids do not want to go to school. Taking the kids on a field trip is a surefire way to get them interested in learning or experiencing something new at school. It can be something that is free, simple, and fun. An example could be going on a nature walk, to the farmers market, or maybe even a corn maze. I know the kids would really love that. Something else you can do to celebrate is read a book in the classroom that is a bit different from the usual book or something specifically about children in other places. Once story-time is over, put a nice, fun, exciting movie for the children to watch
We all know that schools are here to teach our children about things that happen outside of the country. What they can do to celebrate this important day is teach children in school about how other kids live outside their country. It’s important for children to understand that not every kid grows up in a nice abundant country. Many children outside of first-world countries like Canada or America live very different lives. It’s important for children to understand the differences in other children’s lives. Not every child has access to food, clean drinking water, or education. It’s important for children to know. One great thing about having a lesson about the way other children live is that they will get to understand the different cultures that other children have, and it will keep them informed.
International Children’s Day is a day that is celebrated by all children worldwide. Knowing that there’s a day dedicated to young children is such a great thing; it lets children know that we see them and that we want to help appreciate all the small humans on the planet.
Make sure you take one of these ideas and do something to celebrate with the children who are in your school or your classroom; they will appreciate it!
