Learning another language with hungry caterpillars!
In late winter, the students and staff at Pictou Elementary welcomed Omer to their Grade Primary classroom. Recently Omer's dad, Mr. Casim, visited the Ms. Poirier's Grade Pimary classroom to meet the students and to introduce them to the Arabic language. Mr. Casim read the students the book The very hungry caterpillar in Arabic, followed by Ms. Poirier who read it in Englih. Omer and his dad also taught the students to count from zero to five in Arabic. The Casim's moved to Pictou from Syria in February. Well done Omer and thank you, Mr. Casim!
