This innovative project implemented in the framework of the programme aimed to strengthen the multicultural dimension of kindergarten focusing on books and, in particular, to foster a love-of-reading culture with the aim of promoting literature as a means of intercultural dialogue. Numerous activities were held, involving the creative interaction of kindergartners with a variety of texts and cultural sources developed in the course of implementation of this project with the participation of all toddlers; said activities encouraged the experiential and active learning on the part of kindergartners, fostered the establishment of communication and collaboration between them, and supported their developmental path towards the acquisition of reading skills and a positive attitude towards reading.
This educational activity was built on two main axes of implementation:
An important goal was to introduce the children to Greek and foreign language texts, by exploiting and highlighting the linguistic and cultural diversity of the group – given that the kindergartners in question came from 13 different countries. The pupils had the opportunity to learn about the different cultures and traditions of their countries of origin, to identify similarities with their own cultural heritage and to develop a spirit of mutual respect, recognition and acceptance of the different national identities of the group, beyond discrimination and prejudice. Books were also used as a tool to involve parents in the school activities and raise their awareness with respect to intercultural contact and education.
