Found a great tutorial and template to make some photo-strips for our carnival day. You need Adobe Photoshop.

Here’s what I came up with:
Here are some of the highlights from this past month! Hope you enjoy!
For Christmas, Chad got me an iPod Touch. He’s a good boyfriend! (For the record I got him an iPod Touch too.) I love the camera and different apps that enhance photos. My favorites so far have been: Vintage Camera, Diptic, and Instagram. If you have any suggest on other apps, please let me know!
At my school and many other hagwons like it, we have this ‘neat little’ event called “OPEN CLASS.” From it’s name, I thought back to the days at my elementary school when Dads would come and have lunch or we’d have an evening of “Open House” and we could show our parents around the school. However, I am quickly shaken back to reality and discover that open class is no more than a little show we put on for the parents. Last year, I made the big mistake of not knowing what I was getting into, but I’m a year wiser now and knew what to do.
My co-teachers and I prepped the kids in song and dance. I worked on the best and flashiest flashcards that would WOW any kinder right off their feet! I made everything coordinate and match to satisfy my crazy need for… well… coordination! It was a sight to behold and would make any kindergarten teacher said, “OOooo” and even “Aaahh!”
One class was perfect and it was so fun, the other was… let’s just say, “too silly” and made it more difficult to finish the lesson in time.
Now maybe I can finish this cold and be well enough to enjoy Halloween!!
A day in the life of a currently over-worked English teacher. We had a “seminar day” which my school used as a field trip day with the kinder students and their families!
The kids finally show up and they play a game with their families. They had to stack a pile of rocks as high as they can without it falling. You see little rock piles along trails in Korea when you’re hiking. They say if you add a rock to the pile and make a wish it will come true if the pile doesn’t fall; however, if the pile falls your wish and the other wishes won’t come true.
Remember “Sing” when they would sing it on Sesame Street? One of my co-teachers did and showed the video to the kids in her main kinder class. Now they LOVE “sing a SONG” and they put it. So have a la lala lala lala la la lala lala lala la day!
Congratulations kiddos! It’s the end of the school year and the seven year old kinder students graduated!! Now they’ll be Ivy Masters and come in the afternoon, after elementary school!
At ECC the kids had a “kinder prom” We all went out all dressed up and had a party at this place called Kids’ Cafe. A giant play place and a “cafe” for kids. Mostly for birthday parties and big events. The kids had a blast and the teachers did too.
