Celebrating Runeberg Day


runebergday

Sunday is Runeberg Day, a day  celebrating and honouring Finland’s national poet. English Classes took a jump start by celebrating it today. In the photo collage above English Class third grader Iiris is shown on the far right telling first graders, as well as her own class, about the poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg.

Then first graders and third graders read Finnish children’s poetry to one another.

Shared reading is something the children always enjoy, but today, reading poetry, was especially engaging as can be seen from the photographs.
