Bulgarian tradition – Martenitsa

A Martenitsa is a small piece of adornment, made of white and red yarn and usually in the form of two dolls, a male and a female. Martenitsas are worn from Baba Marta Day (1st March) until the wearer first sees a stork, swallow, or blossoming tree (or until late March). The name of the holiday means “Grandma March” in Bulgarian and the holiday and the wearing of Martenitsi are a Bulgarian tradition related to welcoming the spring, which according to Bulgarian folklore begins in March. Inscribed in 2017 on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Warm greetings from Bulgaria!

The students from the 6th grade of the 201st Primary School St. St Kiril and Methodiy made wonderful martenitsas on the occasion of 1st March (Baba Marta Day).

Disemination activities

Last month, two members from TEAM SPAIN (Maide and Manu) had the chance to give a lecture about ERASMUS + to other teachers, who were interested to apply for a new project. Such an amaing experience took place at CEFIE in Salamanca. During this lecture, our spanish collegues explain what is a Erasmus + project, whar are the basis of a KA229 and the most important thing; they spreaded out the FUNTASTIC feelings, which are rising  around our project to the teachers who attended.

This was an amazing disemination activities, which the principal aim was: to encorage teachers to create a project. We would like to thank to CEFIE Salamanca  to count on us.

ERASMUS + PROJECTS DISSEMINATION CONFERENCE.

The dissemination of Erasmus + projects is a very important and necessary part of them. For this reason, the Educational Training and Innovation Center of Salamanca has organized a conference in which several educational centers of Salamanca and its province have taken part.

On the one hand, it has been a great opportunity to make our project known…;

on the other, to know great projects that other colleagues of our city are carrying out.

From FUNTASTIC we would like to thank the Educational Training and Innovation Center of Salamanca and congratulate all the colleagues we have met for their splendid projects:

Sharing good educational practices with the future teachers is a great way to disseminate our project.

We would like to thank teachers José Luis Astudillo and Ramiro Durán for offering us this opportunity. We have enjoyed a lot.
