"TEACHEEEEEEERRRRR!!! Tomorrow...no Englishee!!"
"Englishee?? What does that mean? I never heard of the word Englishee."
*Sigh* "Teacher! ENGLISH! Tomorrow, no English class!! We have field trip!"
It is a fine example of Korean organizational skills that the teachers are the last to know they don't have class. It's not the first, or last, time for this kind of last minute announcement. 2 days ago my students told me when they would be taking my mid-term exam. Apparently, mid-terms are next week. I had no idea.
Anywho, my 4th graders informed me that they were going on a field trip to the most boring place in the whole world, and I was like, "Really? You guys are going all the way to my hometown of Sunbury, PA just for a field trip?!? Say hi to my mom!!" But apparently there's some garden or something that is even more boring than my place of birth. Boring is one of their new vocab words this month, and ever since they learned it there hasn't been a single thing that's happened in their young lives that isn't described as "soooooooo booooring!!!"
And behold (!!) some boring pictures from boring English class:
So today, I suffered through 120 minutes with my 1st graders, and have been wasting time on the interwebz for the rest of it. It probably sounds nice, but it's starting to feel like this day will never end!
