AM Kindergarten Cultural Program - Europe - Serbia
February 13, 2017
We thank the Cvetanovic family for sharing their Serbian heritage. Vasilije's mom (Millie) came to class to talk about Serbia. Vasilije was born in the USA but, his grandparents are from Serbia. Vasilije is studying both the English and Serbian language. He shared his Serbian workbook with the class. We also saw how different the Cyrillic alphabet is. His Mom showed the Serbian flag and located the country on the map. Students saw pictures of a castle in the capitol (Belgrade), traditional clothing, and Vasilije showed us his Serbian soccer clothing. We saw how different Serbian money looks from US dollars.
The students also learned that a famous inventor - Nikola Tesla and tennis professional - Novak Djokovic are from Serbia. The students enjoyed choosing one of two Serbian treats to taste!
