Even my rowdiest kids loved Boss Baby. They all showed up to class early today so that we could start the movie sooner. I definitely recommend it.

It shouldn't surprise me since Boss Baby has a lot of that insane humor that the kids tend to love here. But, originally, I thought a lot of the older students might think it was too weird and awkward.

The tests say it's a go, though, so I guess I'm downloading it as a future option.

Thanks for the feedback.

Follow-up to the movie recommendations:

I haven't shown it myself, but KTs are reporting that the students are really enjoying Sing in their classes.

Also, Wreck-It Ralph goes over well with the students, too. The Korean name for it is something else, but I don't remember what that is. Translates to something like King Ralph or Big-Hand Ralph or whatever.

Ah, finally the last day of classes (unless I'm mistaken again and there are classes next Wed. but the last day of school is usually a funky schedule)!  I thought today's travel school had tests (the original schedule was for last week but ended up teaching classes that day) but turns out that was yesterday.  Good thing I double checked with that coT. 

Me:  Today is a fun day!

Students:  Ohhh no study??

Me:  Yes!  No studying today! 

Students:  Game?!? Game?!

Me:  First we'll watch a video, and then we'll play games!

Students:  YAYYYY

That kid:  Teacher!  I'm hungry! 

I'm a little obsessed with marble sodaI downloaded the video and edited out the profanity (near the middle and at the very end), so I don't advise showing it to your students as is.    One of the kids was so entranced he wrote down the title of the video.   8)

Are these people angry at each other or is that just how they talk?: A Typical Day in Korea  :laugh:

I think it was either a strange exercise routine or they were trying to establish dominance. They did that for a while and ignored a few phone calls. Then they eventually started swinging their arms and clapping (while still bouncing). After about half an hour of this they started talking about the popcorn I brought in for the kids this morning and how strange it was but it smelled good (it was microwave popcorn, I didn't know it was such a rarity). The arm flailing calmed down then they sat down at their desks and started doing their work(?).

It was a very strange occurrence.

Finally! I got to inflict 떡 onto to everyone else (a snack I am not a fan of).  But I did feel a little like Santa, going around and giving rice cake to all the teachers and staff.   mwhahahahahahaha ... 'twas nice.

Did you just get married / have a child / have a child reach 100 days of age?

If so, good job. And congratulations.

This is awesome. I wish the world around me would do that sometimes.  You know, like an 80's movie, where people randomly start dancing and singing at just the right moment...... I would probably understand life better if this happened more often.

I have so much to do today. Prepping for camp. I have just spent 2 hours on the internet taking quizzes to see which of Ted Mosby's girlfriends I am and which breed of dog I should adopt etc etc I can't stop.

C. C is for 'Congratulations!' My baby girl just popped out on Sunday. We had a couple days in he hospital and we had booked a joriwon to transition directly into, but when we called them after the birth they said there was no space and we had to wait two days. We spent two days at home, one with the mother-in-law (which was nice, in our case) and one without, and I must say, one infant is much harder than a room full of sixth graders. ("Nobody knew raising a kid was so hard!") We're in the joriwon now and happy to be there. But 100 days without incident; that's Certainly Cause for Celebration! D. D is for 'Deok.' Ddeok the system!

Congratulations to the new daddies. Be sure to tease your kids like dad champs.

In other news, what I wouldn't give for a savory, non-sweet burrito right now. I realize I could try making my own, but they never turn out right for me. Anyone have any referrels for where I can find a good one anywhere in Korea?

I don't care where I got to go for one, I'll make a day-trip out of it.

Nope, but I think I remember reading about it a while back, and so I'm sticking it on my list.

C right back at ya Donovan! YAY.  Happy and healthy with all appendages accounted for one hopes.  How's the wife recovering? Don't forget about her with all the ogling of the new young'un.  Well done and good luck.  Oh yeh, they're tricky little blighters some times, but when those eyes finally focus on you, and that smile comes and it's finally not just gas.... yeh, that's worth it. 

Joriwon was good for us, up until about day 10, when the wife had had enough and just wanted out! Hope it works for you guys.  Make sure that other thread about having kids is updated (didn't you start that anyhow?)

Congratulations to the new daddies. Be sure to tease your kids like dad champs.

 

You better believe I will.

I have heard good things about Gringos and their burritos. I am also getting pumped up because Villa Guerrero looks like it might be what I am looking for...Taqueria anyone? Yes, please.

This is all I could really find when I googled it. Not meaning to share a blog. I originally found it via the Mangoplate app (one of the top places)...I am set on trying one tomorrow.
