Make a Swahili Counting Book
Friends and family will be so impressed when your youngster shows off her knowledge of Swahili in this book filled with pictures of animals found throughout Africa.
Swahili, or “Kiswahili,” is the national language of Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and is commonly spoken throughout East Africa. About one third of Swahili vocabulary comes from various languages including Arabic, Farsi, German, Portuguese, English and French. In this activity, your child will learn how to count from 1 to 10 in Swahili, learn about African wildlife, and apply those tiny hand muscles.
