Canada-Themed Alphabet Flashcards Free Printable from The Teaching Aunt

Introduce the letters through these Canada-Themed Alphabet Flashcards Free Printable from The Teaching Aunt.

Before coming to Japan, I worked in an international school in Indonesia.

I found the experience very eye-opening as I was exposed to different nationalities and cultures.

As a teacher, I had to make sure that everyone’s culture is represented in the classroom. I made sure that everyone got the chance to share about their country to their friends. The students enjoyed knowing more about where their friends came from. They were curious to hear the similarities and differences between their countries.

Personally, I also looked forward to seeing their presentations. It was just so amazing to know that there are a lot of things that we share in common despite being on the other side of the globe.

Even until now, I still remember with fondness the culture exchange that I experienced when I was in Indonesia.

And I believe that my preschool students then still have with them that excitement to learn about other people’s background.

More importantly, my preschool students then have now grown into more accepting and open-minded young adults.

I highly recommend that you do the same in your classroom, or even at home!

Your little ones will surely benefit from diversity and culture lessons.

If your classroom is more homogenous in terms of nationalities, you may still incorporate it in your classes by doing storytelling and/or watching movies with that theme.

Below are a couple of my tips on how to teach about diversity in the classroom or at home.

How To Teach Cultural Diversity To Preschool Children

  1. Talk about your students’ names. Point out the sound and the country where it’s popular.
  2. Post family photos on the wall and talk about the different members of the family. Discuss the similarities and differences in physical features such as eyes, hair, skin color and even clothes.
  3. Have a ‘Culture Food Party’, if possible. As you are sharing a meal, talk about the ingredients and the taste. You may also discuss how the food was cooked.
  4. Read stories or watch movies with diverse characters.
  5. Recite nursery rhymes or sing children songs from other countries.
  6. Use instructional materials highlighting a specific country.

Those are my top 6 tips on how to teach cultural diversity to children.

And it is so timely, especially the last tip because I’ll be giving away the flashcards that I made for my Canadian student.

These alphabet flashcards feature popular words from Canada- or best words that represent their culture.
