TGIF or How Thanksgiving Is Celebrated In a Foreign Country

Yesterday was an easier day.

After having taught Kindergarten, it was time for the 4th graders to get their test. Most of them did well. Contrary to before, I gave them the tests back after lunch and corrected it with them to make sure they knew what errors they made. In my other class, some students that didn’t do too well before are doing a lot better.

It all goes down to the test and how it is made to evaluate the students. Tests like mine showcase their strenghts and weaknesses.

Today, the school is going all nutty for thanksgiving. I’ve a morning all planned out at the Kindergarten and lunch and movies at the elementary school. I chose Madagascar, hoping that not a lot of kids had seen it before. I brought Ice Age 2, just in case.

  1. Nutty because they really don’t know what to expect. Nutty because the school we work at ordered turkeys for the kids to eat and I had to cut a bird and serve it. Took quite a while.
