I feel like a few of my future smiles are going to come from my students, but maybe today is the first.
Every week I see each of my eight classes three times. This week the first time is for introductions and making name tags, the second is for collecting their books and the third for discussing the rules of the class and splitting the girls between my co-teacher and myself. Yesterday I had one lot of monkeys for the second time and they had SO much energy! We had to march them upstairs (Left, left, left right left), line them up in the heat to sign for their books, (the school is very open, so no air con in the corridors) which is tough going for the best of people let alone kids who can’t keep still! Then head back down. We played Simon Says and some other games and then walked back to class with our books on our heads. It was funny! Thankfully they thought so too! Silliness!
