I teach about 4 to 5 classes a day (except Friday which is 8 classes) and there are about 40 students in each class.
The cute 3rd graders want to give you a big smile and play along. While the 6th graders stare at you like you were evil scum and count down the minutes.
But there are some shining stars amongst all these.
I teach an advanced class 3 times a week, and sometimes on Fridays I let them play games. It is a good way for me to rest before going home and also try to be playful with them. I consider this class like a mini-hagwon because I design the classwork and activities. I know I need to make the course more fun, but I am struggling on how. Sigh... anyways here are some pictures.
Ok, these aren't kids from my advanced class. They are a pack of girls from one of the 6th grade class. The girl you see in front likes to frequent my office after lunch for some free English language exchange. She is soooo funny! She told me how she doesn't like a certain boy in class so now I tease her about it..hehe.
