It was so gorgeous! It was snowing cherry blossoms all around us.
Is my city of Daejeon gorgeous or what?
My birthday was on Tuesday, and my co-teachers and some students threw a surprise birthday party for me. I was really surprised. They went all out. And yes, I got a little teary-eyed. Jin Ju even had all the classes sing Happy Birthday to me. So sweet! I felt so loved. And to answer your question, the cake and the cookies were REALLY good...especially for Korea's standards!
That night, a big group of us met for Mexican food (it's not Tex-Mex but it's Korea has to offer...picture a lot of cabbage in your burrito and taco) and then I persuaded 5 friends to go to a norebang (Korean karaoke) afterwards. We only signed up for an hour and a half but ended up staying over 3 hours because the guy kept giving us extra time for free (common in Korea). We could have had another hour for free, but it was almost 12:30 am, and we were tired. And it was a school night.
It was THE BEST birthday! Better than I could have asked for.
I updated my game boards and added some new ones. I really like the ending result. For each game board, I included a board in full color and one in partial color if you're trying to conserve color ink. What do you think of some of them?
They are great to use with task cards, flashcards, or even boring old worksheets!
I have also been working on my giving face lifts to my emergent readers. My emergent readers are a tad bit unique from other emergent readers. Since my students are blind or visually impaired, they respond well to music. So I created each page to be read/sung to the tune of "Where is Thumbkin?", which is great for my kiddos...especially because they repeat each line which helps their reading. It's a win-win!
Like I said, it was a pretty eventful week. How as your week?
I LOVE comments, so comment away peeps!
