Looking for a way to incorporate more diversity into your classroom? Try celebrating Pepero Day!
In Korea, November 11th is Pepero Day. Peperos are a cookie/candy treat that look similar to the number one (hence 11/11). You may be familiar with Pocky, which is very similar to Peperos.
For this lesson, I gave the students their own Pepero (Pocky). They read through the story, filled in the blanks, and decided what they were going to change their Pepero into, in order for it to not be eaten. The students then taped their Pepero onto the paper and drew around it, in order to make it become something new. For example, one Pepero was changed into a butterfly, another became a monkey.
This is a fun activity that encourages the students to be creative. It is also a big hit with Korean students!
I hope you find this to be helpful!
