It’s been a rough couple of weeks.
My hagwon put on a speech contest for the kindergarteners, I started having serious issues sleeping (now I can’t sleep in the mornings or when I lay down to sleep), and I continued to cough horribly for the fourth week in a row. Several students also quit this week.
I also suffered that most horrible of a world nomad’s fears when my grandmother passed away. I am preparing a proper post for her, but this recording is from Friday the 27th Korea time. The day of her memorial in the USA.
I slept about two hours before this recording was made. All that above to explain why I sound a bit angry towards the end of this.
Featured in this recording:
- A four-year-old wandering into my classroom unsupervised
- Circle time negotiations
- My heavy coughing
- The mysteries of trying to add an hour to the time
- Call and response teaching
