1st Grade Creates Joy with La Scuola, Lima
Our First Grade Verdi collaborated with La Scuola "Antonio Raimondi" of Lima, Peru, to create this amazing book to celebrate the 100th birthday of Gianni Rodari and his life as a teacher, writer, journalist, and author of hundreds of fables, nursery rhymes and songs for children and adults.
Teachers Elena Bianchi and Eleonora Stroud used the Collaboration unit to share Italian culture between the two schools. The project - called Il Libro delle Favole Oltreoceano or The Book of Stories from Overseas - helped students perfect their cursive as they wrote stories in the same style and spirit of Rodari. Elena worked at the Lima school in 2017 and 2018.
"The objective of the project is to collaborate with children from other countries, with different habits and languages, writing Italian stories," the teachers shared.
