Happy New Year!
Multicultural & Multilingual Activity of the Month: Calendars!
At the beginning of each new year, we change out our calendars, make plans and/or simply think about what lies in store for the rest of the year. Why not make this yearly ritual around tracking the passage of time a multilingual and multicultural one! Below we have included some fun calendar based activities to introduce the different types of calendars and a variety of languages. These activities are fun for both kids and adults and can be used at home as a fun family project or in the classroom.
