I had a wonderful Elementary lesson on Thursday. We spent 10 minutes doing some winter-related "total physical response". I yell out different things, and the students mimic my actions. Stuff like: Make a snowball! Throw a snowball! Ski! Snowboard! Speed skate! It's fun, and it's supposed to be good for listening skills. Then, we all went outside (teachers and vice-principal included) and played in the snow for the next hour. A massive snowball fight ensued, and much fun was had. After lunch, we all played hide and go seek in the school.
Yep, sometimes I have a really rough job.
