An unconventional lesson on Vepkhistkaosani for the 4th Graders11.10.2018
On October 8, Lika Vekua, Georgian language teacher at IB PYP, gave her pupils a fun lesson on the poem “Vepkhistkaosani”:
“-How can I make “Vepkhistkaosani” by Shota Rustaveli more interesting and entertaining for the 4th graders? -This was my biggest challenge as I was preparing for the lesson.
I turned to our Georgian library and its librarian, Miss Nino, for help. She provided me with a fair amount of books, posters, board games, maps and puzzles, that made it fun to learn more about this masterpiece of the Georgian literature. In the beginning, I was not sure where to start, so I let my pupils decide.
We put all the materials on the table and students started to express their opinions, they engaged in the lively discussion and shared opinions about the poem. In addition, the pupils enjoyed playing the board game of “Vepkhistkaosani”.
This is how they became little explorers, experiencing the Rustaveli Journey, ” said Lika Vekua.
