obligitory

Alright, been a while since I shared some cute student pictures. As much as I loathe waking up at 630 in the am and spending my whole day with 5 year olds (I guess I shouldn't be a teacher anymore...) my students really are f*ckin' adorable (see, I'm a terrible teacher!) I get to plan all my own lessons, a blessing and a curse, and come up with my own ideas for everything. Yeah, nine hours of "happy learning" a day.

Last week we learned about cooking. So we went to my favorite store and went grocery shopping, each of them getting 100 baht to spend in the candy isle. I spent more than 100 baht.

 They all had their own money and got to pay the cashier. Even exciting if you rich and have everything I guess.
Later, when we got back to school we did some cooking in the kitchen. We made mac and cheese and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, which they had never tried before. I explained that these were very common foods for kids their age in America (and my personal favorite foods!)

This week is health week so I have been teaching them how to be healthy people. Then we made germs from clay, for no other reason than I thought it would be fun. And it totally was.
A couple weeks ago we made robots. These are the days that I love my job.

I love doing fun things with my students where they can learn about the real world in an interesting way (cause germs and robots are totally real.) Yeah, sometimes they drive me crazy with their non stop questions and invasions of my personal space. But like I said, I am learning patience. It's coming along slowly.
