European Bedtime Stories! EDL 2019

 School project, 02 Sep 2019 - 01 Nov 2019

A short eTwinning Plus project to celebrate the diversity of the European languages and the European Day of Languages. We would like to demonstrate that languages are used to create and communicate with others. We would like to show our children that languages can be written in different contexts: stories, letters, newspaper articles... and can be spoken with an appropriate tone according to the situation. Bedtime stories are important in children's lives, because they allow them to develop their affectivity, their attention and their willingness to read and write, as this new generation, which is sometimes called "generation Alpha', interacts little through reading and writing, especially by hand, and tend to be isolated and solitary. However, they are more technologically connected. Let's show them that we can both master sophisticated tech devices and use our hands to create and our soul to tell wonderful stories!
