Who has come to school today?

Posted by in Challenge

This is the challenge that the primary school class with shared education has been proposed to achieve. Our challenge is to know and recognize all the people, who are in the school and in which place they are located. The aim is, that both children and adults know each other and later record who has been coming to school. The first step is knowing all the classmates. Every morning, during the welcome morning, we greet each other by shaking our hands and saying: “Good morning” and the companion’s name.
