We talked about how it feels when you have an unusual name, or one that other children can tease you about because it rhymes with something. And how important it is for everyone to accept every one else's name, and to treat each other with respect. Children shared stories of their own names, and what they many mean. Here is a list of what we found out:
Susan - means "Lily"
Leland - means "Fallow Land" and is English in origin
Mia - means "Beloved"
Mila - means "Gracious, Dear" and is Polish in origin
Isaya - means "God has saved" and is Kenyan in origin
Obafemi - means "The King loves me" and is Nigerian in origin
Andrew - means "Manly"
August - means "Majestic dignity" or "Great"
Dillon - means "Faithful, loyal"
Lexi - means "To help and defend"
After story and discussion, we found Korea on the world map, and then tried our hand at making one of Unhei's favorite delicacies - Kimchi! Here is the recipe we used:
1) One napa cabbage, in 1/4 inch slice
2) Two teaspoons sea salt
3) 5 small carrots, grated
4) 1 teaspoon ginger, finely minced
5) 1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
We massaged the cabbage with sea salt for several minutes, then added and mixed in the rest of the ingredients. We packed it into a very clean jar, and will store until it is ready to eat - about 7 days of fermentation should do it!
