A is for Africa

Last year we made an alphabet book using an online program based on our time in Uganda. It was lots of fun to make and we enjoyed using it at home to share about our trip. We've been showing it to folks here as well and they're all amazed to see familiar sights and faces in a real book. The kids and I took it into P1 today. Our sponser child Sam is in that class so the whole class was so excited to see the page "S is for Sam." They did a wonderful rendition of the alphabet for us complete with claps and jumping jacks and did a great job learning our names and expressing appreciation. They are taught in their local tribal language but begin to learn the alphabet, simple vocabulary and counting skills in English. The class was truly a joy to be in with an enthusiastic teacher and lots of smiling happy children.
