With this project we are planning to improve the knowledge and awareness of our children to follow their " models " or " heroes " from tales or stories.it helps to bring international dimension into children`s everyday life through characters who will help us, the teachers, tooffer them an education regarding morals values for an active European citizen based on understanding, respect and intercultural tolerance.
between 4th and 8th November hosted the first meeting of
the project with our partners from Bulgaria, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Austria, Sweden and Romania.
The visit helped us to know each other better and
established also ways of how to work on the project.
We exchanged ideas and we made the national stories known
this being the purpose of our project.
Each partner has made a character puppet which will travel
from country to country, from a story to another, for helping the children to
know lots of stories showing and teaching them the moral values..
Children and teachers from “Blue Flower” Kindergarten who
hosted the first meeting acted the play “The old man’s daughter and the old
woman’s daughter”, a story written by Ion Creanga, they also danced and sang
traditional songs and dances.
The visit gave us the opportunity to find out about customs
and traditional products by organizing International meals. Each partner bringing
specific products from its country.. Teachers who came in the project had the
opportunity to know about social and cultural objects, completing the image of
our country, Romania.
They had visited The Parliament House, The palace of
Romanian Patriarchate, the Presidential Palace “Cotroceni” and Bran Castle.
Visiting another kindergarten “The Aristocratic Cats” the
teachers met other Romanian kindergarten
teachers whose work was also admired.
The meeting wasn’t finished without establishing the next
meeting date and what we have to do until then.
The communication between all of us succeeded to create an
union between partners and we can easily
say that friendships has been made.
