    How would I welcome a child into class, help to celebrate their unique differences and help other children welcome and get to know this child?


    I would have the child introduce themselves and share about their family, where they have come from, special foods they eat and even traditions they practice at home. I would make sure to include representative materials throughout the classroom and in the lesson plans and class activities. This includes books about the culture, picture books with characters that represent the student and their culture, talk about how different cultures are something to be celebrated and welcomed. Depending on age of students maybe talk about foods or music from that culture and bring a food from that culture and play music from that culture. Other children could welcome and get to know this child by including them in play and other activities as well as ask questions to have better understanding such as learning basic words in that language or even what it is like living in another part of the world.
