In Germany within the Days of Yamal the delegation of the Autonomous Okrug on the International Teacher’s Day participated in activities dedicated to development of pedagogy.
Exchange of experience with the German colleagues was started with the visit to the bilingual kindergarten “Tannenhof” (translated from German as a little fir-tree), which is a partner of the kindergarten “Kristallik” (a small crystal) in the town Salekhard.
The director of “Tannenhof” Inna Schmidt presented “the Dusseldorf family model”, on which the kindergarten works: children from 4 months old to 6 years old can be in one group. The youngest child, who visited the kindergarten, was only 5 months old. In such model younger children take the example of senior children. The schedule of the day is flexible. Considering that the kindergarten is bilingual, children from the early age start mastering both correct Russian and German languages.
The specialists from Yamal were interested in experience of teaching Russian in the kindergarten as well as Russian cultural values for children, who live in German-speaking environment, as the press-service of the governor of Yamal informs. It is important for the region, where knowledge of languages and culture of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North are kept for children of indigenous peoples.
As a social pedagogue Svetlana Lutskaya informs, it is usual everyday work. But it creates a miracle – bilingualism. The work is started with presenting of a form of politeness in two languages. Thus, passive vocabulary is formed. Education in the kindergarten can take place only through playing. They celebrate national holidays, such as the Pancake Week, for example, holidays, which have no analogues in Germany. It develops attention of a child to new details, stimulates study of new lexis. There is a project “The world of fairy-tales” counted for different ages of children, in the course of which pupils get acquainted to national literature, in parallel enriching vocabulary.
Within cooperation of the kindergartens in future it is planned to train pedagogues of the kindergarten “Tannenhof” in the kindergarten “Kristallik” in Salekhard and also to share experience in format of videoconferences.
