After two weeks of blurry jet lagged training, I got thrown into what we call Intensives. These classes run each day for a month when the Korean kids have a break from their usual Korean school. (I'm really, really glad my mom didn't make me go to school during my summer break, by the way.) I was in charge of these three 40-minute long storybook classes. Each class went through one book each week. I love children's stories, and i generally like kids, but these classes were ridiculous.
Now I'm able to look back with a fondness, but back in the day (that would be August), these kiddos were shaving years off my life with their lovable rambunctious antics.
|Class #2. More kids, less teacher control, but more teacher apathy, too. We had Robert Munsch stories for this class. His books are great, but they do not last long when you're reading them. They surely don't last for a whole week. We watched lots of videos, played lots of games, and acted out the stories to take up time. They loved acting out Something Good. The girl in the pink dress, Michelle, loves attention, and, when everyone else pretended to be shy, she jumped into the lead role and won the hearts of the audience (myself).|
|These pictures pretty much sum things up.|
Intensives were a crazy time, but a good and usually fun experience. I sure did come out of it with some great stories.
