I”m Feeling just a little Proud here!

IMG_0151 IMG_0153 So the song was a hit….well okay maybe not with the 1st 2 classes/rotations, but by the time we got to the 3rd class, the kids rocked it!!

They were engaged and curious to try out a new language. Never mind feeling awkward and maybe sounding a little silly – they did it.  They sang head, shoulders, knees and toes in my language and I was so proud of them. 

The whole day went smoothly.  the crafts I choose for the kids to do were fun and simple and the information that I shared – well they took it all in. They couldn’t believe that while downtown Bangkok has a population of 12 million people, it is double compared to the total population of PNG.  yes we are a small island.

Well the kids had a fun day full of learning experiences (I know Tanysha did).  The other countries they visited today were Germany and Switzerland where they did some yodeling and ate Swiss chocolate and German sausages.  They also visited Thailand and learnt to play some local instruments and of course enjoy the Thai sweets.  And then they also visited Mexico, Honduras and the Dominican Republic where they tried on and learnt about the national dresses of these countries and also tried some traditional dishes from there.  I’m sure they all walked away with something.

I know I did.  I learnt some new things too.

I’m exhausted. my feet are tired from standing and my voice is sore from all the talking – but all so worth it. Really!

sorry that I don’t have many photos to share.

Your international day sounds like such an interesting event for everyone. It's so wonderful that children can be exposed to different worlds, and learn a little about them.

What a great opportunity for you and especially for the children. I'm glad it went well, and I'm sure it was an awesome experience!
