La rassegna finale presso il Consolato Generale d'Italia a New York
PS242M, Maestro José: the DL program at PS242M is embedded within a curriculum which follows the IB philosophy. PS242M is currently the only public elementary school which follows an IB. Maestro José read Il Giorno Felice.
An incredibly motivated group of diverse parents - Italian, heritage and speakers of a third language - has published their own Facebook profile to showcase extra curricular activities and announce invitations and gatherings.

A note from the fifth grade teacher Lidia De Angelis Orsino:
"We discussed the author's message: to celebrate diversity and to understand someone better by learning about their background".
Activity 1: Through this book, students learned about hobbies in Italian and how to ask/answer another person about their hobbies. To achieve this, students worked in partnerships and surveyed each other in Italian. The activity required students to survey themselves, a friend, their parent, and their teacher. They had a lot of fun learning more about their friends in the class!
Activity 2: Students created their split self-portrait about their hobbies and things they are passionate about. They drew symbols to represent the hobbies they enjoy or the foods they love. Students chose to paint their background any color they like or to draw the flag of where their family is from.
Lastly, in their notebooks they explained their portrait using 3 sentence frames in Italian.
In this section we are hosting the contributions of those families whose children go to public schools that do not offer an Italian program. What you'll see has been produced by the children at home, with the exclusive support from their parents.
