the first two lessons i just had to sit in and assist. the class had arts and crafts where the prepared their pirate accessories for the big summer night event on june 21st. it's this huge event that everyone is super excited for. after that i did english with them which was amazing. we looked at spelling and grammar inductively.. (--> reflect THAT my phz friends! haha) and i had them do an explorers (grade 6) exercice which most of them did with little to no difficulty. i told them that they should really think about whether they were up for the challenge of figuring out the task themselves.. and since almost of all of them are very ambitious i had very very little explaining to do. and mind you, the sheets i've received so far aren't bad at all! also, thank you leo! i tried out that picture drawing thing where you add something and they have to figure out what it is. i had them write down sentences with verbs in past tense since we reviewed the spelling of verbs in past tense.. after that was recess and then math. well geometry to be precise. i love teaching geometry! seriously! so much fun. we started a new topic about circles etc. i didvided the class in two groups and had one of them on an explorer's task (they had to find, draw and name circular objects around the school building).. and the others worked in the classroom. after 10-15 minutes they switched. and leeeet meee tell you! the groups outside went crazy with the task! i asked them to find at least three objects and they found up to 25!!! i was very proud and surprised! after school we had a meeting with the primary school teachers.. and now, now i'm sitting at home, finished marking the sheets from English class and still needing to read through tomorrows preparation and analyse songs for the gugge.. and all i want now is to have someone massage my feet (i was standing and walking all day and i'm so not used to it anymore..) and a good night's sleep.. zzzzZZZZ
alrighty then kids, be safe and enjoy the apparently warm day.. or so i've heard from my personal source. ;)
