Teaching demo

Today I taught my first English class! School doesn't actually start until next week but, in order to give us all a chance to practice with out LETs before our first day, everyone in the program made a lesson plan last Friday and participated in teaching demos today. An, happy day, my lesson went really well!
My LET, Siena, and I taught a group of 1st-3rd graders. Our lesson was based around a cute little book of opposites that I got from the dollar bin at Target. We made up little actions to illustrate the meaning of each of the phrases and taught them to the kids. They really got into it.
As you can see, the kids were adorable!

After our lesson was done, I became an honorary student in the next lesson to even out the odd number of kids. We played rock, paper, scissors and the winner had to name and point to a body part in English while the loser pointed at a different body part.
Paper covers rock! One of the few times I beat my partner.
All in all, it was a fun day. I made some new friends and we even had a surprise guest wander into the classroom during Christine's lesson:
I guess she was an honorary student, too
Group shot of all the students, ETAs, and LETs in group A. What a fun bunch!
