Today is Mother Tongue Language Day! This is celebrated every February 21st. This holiday celebrates all of the different languages that people speak around the world. It originated from the country of Bangladesh. Our day started with a visit from Ms. Giggi, who taught us about the Italian language. She taught us how to count to ten, say Ciao (hello and goodbye), buongiorno (good morning), grazie (thank you), prego (you’re welcome) and gatti (cats). After we spoke in Italian, we danced around the room in a circle to the Mickey Mouse March song.

Later this morning, Ms. Nahreen came in and shared information about Bangladesh and how International Mother Language originated. Here is the power point that she shared with us today. At the end, Zeeon’s mom gave us our name tag written in Bangla.
