Read stories/read-alouds based in their country

Have the student teach common phrases - hello, how are you, etc.

Create a double bubble map - similarities and differences of student’s home and
school

Students with less English ability - create an English/home language picture

Research cultural differences


-how do you celebrate birthdays
-What are your main holidays
-teach them what Thanksgiving and Fourth of July means in America. What
similar holidays are in your culture?
-What are the common foods in your culture? What foods can we introduce
from our culture?
