our first official teaching day with the kids was very different from anything we had expected. we had met the other three volunteer teachers (all locals) yesterday, and did some planning for the summer camp. it was obvious that they had a specific schedule planned for us from 8-4 and that we would not have as much flexibility as we had hoped. but we decided to just go with it.
we are rotating between class 4, 5, and 6–teaching english, science, math and social studies. today, since they had not yet divided the children into their classess we taught them some new games and songs. it was great fun! the children are so full of vitality and energy. they are hard to keep up with, but i can tell this is going to be a wonderful experience!!
