Lesson Learned: Week 4

Christopher OKeefe and Class 5A

Kids here have their own text abbreviations For example Q stands for “que” (what).

They are not saying “gracias adios” which means “thank you, goodbye”. They are saying “Gracias a Dios” which means “Thank God”.
People here wear t-shirts from all parts of the world they have never been and sports teams they have never heard of. It seems like economically challenged places are where they send t-shirts they can’t sell back home.

No matter how old you are, there is nothing like a care package from home.

Never leave stickers or other prizes where the kids can see them unless you plan to part with them.

I loved the look on my students faces when instead of putting on the usual musical selection of Latin and rap, I put on U2. They didn’t dismiss it but sat there trying to wrap their minds around my favorite music.

The game of Uno transcends language barriers. Playing it with children is a great way to pick up on a language

This is me with Class 5A.

    What a beautiful shot! You should frame it and give to the kids/school before you´re heading back home 😀
    Yay! U2!!! I´m a huge fan – got every single album of course 😉 Hope you can educate their music taste as well 😉 Cheers!
