Are there Polish-speaking children in your early years service? Whether the answer to this question is yes or no, it is really great for children to think about and explore different languages and cultures. This is especially true now that the world is changing so quickly, and more and more we are experiencing a variety of different cultural traditions and languages everywhere we go! It can be fun and inclusive for children in your service who are new to Ireland to talk about some of the vocabulary from their first language.
This week’s Friday Freebie is 2 posters showing some Polish vocabulary. We show the Polish words for body parts, emotions, and colours, with a pronunciation guide that staff can use to teach the children how to pronounce the different words.
These posters are taken from the Multiculturalism section of the Early Years Resource Factory. The Early Years Resource Factory, or EYRF, provides hundreds of useful printables, records and notices for use in your service, as well as access to the Family Notices with important and interesting information for families, that we update every month, and our monthly Newsletter Creator, where you can create a personalised 1- or 2-page newsletter for your service. We provide some content that you can use as is or edit as you desire, and you can also add your own news items, “hellos” and “goodbyes” or anything else you think may be of interest to the families in your service.
