The “Buwan ng Wika sa Korea hatid ng The 601 Habit” finally kicked off yesterday with Interactive Lecture of the Filipino Culture for Kids at Kinderwelt. Kinderwelt is a Korean pre-school located in Gaebong. Around 40 pre-schoolers, with their teachers, listened and participated in the various activities depicting our Filipino way of life.
The kids learned about the Philippine flag and had fun putting the puzzle parts together. It was a pretty effective way of making the kids easily remember our number 1 national symbol.
They listened and joined in the singing of Bahay Kubo:
The kids definitely enjoyed the “experience” of riding in a jeepney and learning to say “bayad po” and “para po”.
We displayed some of our national costumes and some of the ladies wore our elegant “terno”, which the Korean teachers described as “elegant”.
And since we were dealing with active little kids, the little feet need some jumping and kicking. And they had the perfect time to do that with our childhood games “sipa” and (the ironically named) “chinese garter”.
We had to leave, unfortunately. The 1 hour with them may not have been enough for them to take in everything we presented, but we are glad to have started such a positive feeling for them about our country.
And, of course, we left them with a taste of the Philippines, Mango Mania’s (what else!) mangoes.
Cheers and till the next one! This is just the first of a series of activities we are having under “Buwan ng Wika sa Korea”.
