Stormy Wednesday

Wednesday is a hard day. I have a 1st and 2nd grade class. Honestly, I'm not very good at handling younger kids. Really. They are restless, carefree, noisy, ready to cry, and cute. A mother once advised me that younger kids in elementary school are like space aliens. So they are. I don't know what space aliens are really like, though. Anyway, I've been struggling to draw their attention to learning English. Compared to them, the 3rd grade class that follows after this seems way much composed.

This year, to my relief, most of them are fairly precocious. But, you see, there are two boy gangsters. Aha! I think I'll need some "discussions" with them sometime soon. :)

There is, however, a joy, too -- their flexibility in learning a language. They are not biased. They are all ready to accept a language they don't know. That's amazing.
