it’s been a couple of weeks since I last posted something. I’ve been taken with work and my kids. I’ve also been kind of busy having tons of fun around town 😉
My students and I celebrated International Literacy Day on September 8. Check out my album on Facebook http://ow.ly/6oBMq. For those of you who don’t know, I am a big fan of reading & a self-confessed bookworm. I am willing to do anything I possibly can to promote literacy and love ♥ for books. I became very much involved last year after I translated a document for the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and a community group back home. A dream project indeed. Anyway, It was a huge hit & I can’t to continue encouraging my kids!
The following day we had a Chuseok festival at my school. Chuseok or Korean Thanksgiving, is the biggest holiday of the year in South Korea. To tell you more about it, I invite you to check this page I found. It’s from my friends at the Korea Tourism Organization. They explain it so clearly. Please check it out:
Customs require all to wear a traditional dress called Hanbok. This is what I looked like after putting it on 😉
There were plenty of activities and traditional games. By the end of the afternoon, the kids were so ready to go home and rest ha ha. We had so much fun but it didn’t stop there.
I still had to teach my elementary kids. Who says that teaching grammar is boring? I have a blast in class. Don’t believe me? Check this:
I even laughed out loud cause it was so much fun!
We also got to taste some great traditional food like these delicious rice cakes…tell me it’s not tempting! 😉
Now there is more, so much more to tell but that will be in my next post. The saga continues he he.
Hope you enjoyed it & would love to hear from you.
I’ll be back sooner than you think *wink*
