I want to participate in your blog cooperatif pour les correspondances.
My name: Gabi Varaldi
My country: Uruguay (Montevideo)
My class: 6th grade (the kids are 11-12 years old)
Language: spanish (and english)
My school is a public school. It is in Montevideo. The reality of the families of this school are too difficult. In our country the education (Primary, Secondary and University) is free, but the complex reality of these families doesn´t allow them to continue their studies.
I work there since 10 years ago and I continue choosing this school because I think that Freinet has to be there, and the fight for their own rights and the reflex and critical minds are essential to transform their future.
We can communicate by skype, by e-mail, by postcards, by whatsapp, facebook
My experience with correspondance was with France -Andrea Alemany 2009-2010- and with Chile -Iris Mernez and Marcela Riquelme 2011- . Both experiences were too interesting for me and for the kids… they was really interested in so many things about the countries and write with a really communicating intention was so good. And when the letters arrive… those were magic moments! they sent us the letters but draws too, and little present for each other!
In my school it was a really important experience in 2011… another colleagues made correspondance with México and Brasil too.
That year, 2011, we received Andrea, Iris and Marcela in our school! And we worked together for Freinet Uruguayan meeting! so nice! And they, also, brought us the letters from their children and my children gave them the correspondance to Chile too.
Our school year starts on march and end on december.
I hope we can find friends to make correspondance teacher-teacher too!!
