I've been having a pretty shitty day today and feeling kind of down but then I had a 3rd grade middle school student come up to me after class and he told me he had a lot of fun in class today.  I's nice to get feedback like that from students.  I feel much better now.

My kids have learned how to use general greetings like a native speaker, and they're constantly throwing them at me in the halls and striking out quick "small talk" conversations.  It makes me feel so good that not only do they enjoy interacting with me, but THEY'RE ACTUALLY APPLYING THE THINGS WE'VE LEARNED TO REAL-LIFE SITUATIONS OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM?!?  WHAAAAAAAAT?!?!?!?! :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:

How very un-Korean of them. :laugh:

My grade 3's really enjoyed their activity today. Maybe a bit TOO much. Sounded like students were being murdered in my classroom. One child was practically frothing at the mouth from all the excitement  :huh: :huh: :huh: :huh:

It's the cowboy game combined with a blazing pen game. One student from each team takes a board and pen, and faces away from the screen. As soon as they hear BANG, then they turn around and write the word that matches the image. The winning team gets to spin a wheel for points.

for some reason it annoys me to no end, especially when they don't even use it properly. For examples, "What the shit?!" or "Oh, my fuck!" :rolleyes:

"What the shit" seems fine to me.  :laugh:
It isn't straight up traditional usage, but you can get pretty loosey-goosey with profanity and still come out on top.



I didn't make that image.

Apparently the phrase has a page on UrbanDictionary, too.  ;D

Swearing is magical.

Unless you're one of my students, in which case: NO. STOP IT. BAD.

Today I was served by the "Executive Chef" at a Noodle bar in a cafeteria attached to an Emart store... at least that what it said on her jacket above her name.  I tried to see what the other staff had for titles, but they all had aprons on.

I went into a third party cell store once (you know, the ones with the Olleh, SK AND UPlus+ signs on them) and one of the guys had a nametag entitled "Global Investor." God damn, that's swanky! His name? "Staff"

I refuse to believe this. :evil: :evil: :evil:

Okay, fine, but would you agree that "He my fuck you!" is not proper usage? :laugh: Because a lot of my students say that and it makes me want to punch them in the face.

I laughed at that bit too. :laugh: I love when students enjoy the activities. It makes the class go by so much quicker and we're all full of energy by the end of it.

Just realized that starting next semester, I'll be ahead on lesson planning for elementary school!! Since I started at a weird time (Nov), my elem. coT had me start from lesson 8 and spend one week on each chapter, as a kind of review for the kids. Which means I already have the basic intro lessons done for chapters 8 - 13.

So the beginning was a bit nuts in terms of planning but I'm gonna be benefiting from all that work sooner than expected  8)

I'll be able to focus more on my middle school plans and just tinker with my elem. plans if need be.  :azn:
