Can I Get A Whoop-Whoop?

I am pleased to tell you that today was an amazing success.

Last night I was here pretty late (Hooray! for 12+ hour days!) getting some things together. When I quit my job last August, my goal was to leave quickly. I ended up just deleting so many files on the computer, because of convenience. Now I am recreating some things, but for the most part it hasn’t been a huge issue.

Last night, with the help of google image searches and Microsoft clip art, these came into being. They made my life a joy today:

We used Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? as a first book to read to the kiddos. It’s great because it has animals and colors–plus it’s totally predictable. We played a game of our own version (which helps me know the names of the students). Afterwards, they drew self-portraits. Yesterday, my afternoon class drew self-portraits, but I wanted to give them the opportunity to try today with me. Here is Diego’s from yesterday:

He told me today those were his muscles…

This afternoon, I learned a version of Monkey in the Middle. Only when someone caught my ball, they pointed at me and shouted, “Gato! Gato!”

(And this was funny–I feel like it needs a caption that says, “What I feel like when you speak English…)
