In Korea the school year ends at the end of February. No long summer vacation for these kids! Not that summer is the best time of year here; I have never experienced such humidity in my life. And the spiders are huge and scary and they fall on my head from the trees. And I scream and make a fool out of myself, but what else is new, right? I love Korea.
Anyway, the end of the year means I get a whole lot of new kidlets and grudgingly let my old ones move up into seven year old kindergarten. I will miss them so, so much. They're pretty much the most awesome kids ever.
Tiger and Ha Jin on the carpet. Is it just me or did they grow over the last six months?
What are you talking about. I have great control over my class! Dong Hyun, making his usual camera face; May, snarling; Lily and James: hiding.
Nina really is quiet, though. What a sweetheart. And she has the same birthday as my Mom (Happy Birthday Mom...).
These are my two silent boys. Seriously, they never talk or make noise. Really. I thought my strict enforcement of the "No Korean" rule in class would create a more peaceful environment, but really all the kids just yell "NO KOREAN!" at each other all day.
