I never used that "chase the vocab" game with students over older than 3rd grade cuz I thought it would be too easy and they wouldn't like it but I used it today with a 6th grade class and they didn't want to leave the dang room when class finished :/ They demanded more rounds of extreme mode :/ Looks like I found a game to use next month...

One of the truest things I've learned is that 6th grade kids are just bigger kids. They try to act cool, but show them some goofy simple fun game and they love it. And when you walk past their classrooms during break times, they're all sitting around playing with blocks and stuff. Just big kids.

"Chase the vocab?"

I attached the version I used today. I used the pattern "It's (month) _____" and they had to follow the month and tell me first, second, third, etc for what number the month I said was under. So if I said "It's January...." they followed January and replied "It's January 1st!" if it was under card #1.

Today is my last day at my favourite school. (I'm still working in Korea next week, but this school has exams then, and told me to just stay home to start packing etc.)
Students have been really sad that I'm leaving, I got lots of pictures / letters from the students here. The principal gave me a really long hug, before he thanked me for my time here! Someone was sleeping in the spot where the school wanted me to eat my lunch, so I went to the cafeteria, every table wanted me to sit by them. I sat with the teachers because, I didn't want the students to get upset if I didn't sit by them, 1 group waited around until the cafe got quiet, then beckoned me over. So I sat with them.
They've also been giving me various snacks.

Yesterday was pretty funny, when almost all 101 students tried to give me a group hug on the stairwell, blocking the Korean teachers trying to go up the stairs, they broke it up after the bell went for class though (right before school started).

It's been a really happy and positive, but really sad day here!
(little bit of a rant): I'm kinda angry that, even though my travel school, that is becoming the main school to my replacement, wanted to rehire me after my contract ended, got told no. I wanted to stay here another year.
However, it's been a great experience!

The grade 2 students at my main middle school are always making me laugh  :laugh:
One of the girls used to be super shy, too.  It's nice to see her opening up into a more confident person (she's still an introvert by nature, but not deathly shy anymore). 
It's what makes the job so great.

I feel like my students are really warming up to me this year and starting to show some personality.  It makes me so happy to get to know as more than just desks in a classroom.

Last week, one of my sixth grade girls quietly walked behind me the entire way to my office without me noticing (I was a little distracted with an armload full of materials). Right as I went to open my door she screams "HELLO!" and made me jump about 3 feet in the air. Then she ran away laughing.  Iwould have laughed too, if I wasn't busy recovering from a heart attack.

Today, I left the cafeteria with 2 of my Gr.5 boys.  I turned down the Gr.1 hallway to say hi to the munchkins (I can't resist seeing their little faces) and I notice that the boys are still with me.  They started mimicking me (I had my arms crossed bc the hallway was a little cold). The only thing I could do was to break into silly walks and see if they would still copy me.  About five minutes later, I have about half of the Gr.5 and 6 boys as well as a gaggle of Gr.1's following me around the school. All of us were doing the silliest walks we could think of.

To top it all off, this Friday is Science Day!! It's a damn good week.

One of the teachers in my office is humming the Beauty and the Beast Tale as Old as Time song and it's making me happy.

Is it because you accidentally ate sugar?
It's literally poison, you know!

I was hoping the 'poison' link would be to a definition of 'poison.'

Also, no - dying. Not dead, yet. Probably because I avoided all that sugar.

That would literally have been too literal and I'm more a figurative kind of person.
Anyway, we're all burning alive on the inside. Sugar's just a little more fuel for the fire! :smiley:

Brooooooo, back then I used to go to at least a concert every week in Toronto. First time, Opera House (name, not an actual one haha), some girl came up to me and asked me if I was him.

Started wearing a lot of floral print suit jackets to shows after that.

ALL THE DAMN TIME.

On Thursdays and Fridays, my travel school principal picks me up and brings me to school. Today, I had forgotten to take bread out of the freezer, so I couldn't make my lunch. So I go to the conbini to get a few unhealthy snacks, which when combined, make a lunch. My principal said when I told her these snacks were my lunch. "Nope, I can't allow you to have such an unhealthy lunch." So she takes me to paris baguette on the way to school, and says: You can get a healthier lunch here." So I pick out what I want, and she decides she wants a coffee, I go to pay (I offered to pay for her coffee too, since she drives me to school twice a week for nothing). She says: "no, it's my treat." and refuses to let me pay for my own lunch.
Was very nice. I kept thanking her for it, probably to the point of annoyance. :D I'm not very comfortable accepting gifts, even from my closest friends. :\
