Coke & Mentos, Kids & barf
The rainstorm knocked out our internet for a day or so, and we kind of all freaked out being disconnected with the world. I know in my last blog I said I enjoyed being free of all electronics...but the internet is still something I can't live without. ^_^
In my first class I had a kid force himself to throw up. He had already thrown up in another class, so I figured he wouldn't in mine. But he did. He's a new kid and totally scared of being in this immersion program, with strange people who speak a weird language.
My kindergarten class is so stinking cute though. It's just so hard to keep them all entertained at all the same time with different songs, and for more than 5 minutes at a time. My level 5 class is great, today we did the coke and mentos experiment, and I totally forgot how much kids love to see things explode. ^_^ They figured if things exploded so well with just mentos and coke, what if we added vinegar and baking soda to the mix? Hmm...next lesson plan is now planned!
I love getting caught in the rain here, it's so refreshing because it's so warm. We have a pretty good library here so I've been trying to read more books.
There's also some really good places to eat here. I really need to start rationing my money though, so I'll have enough to go to Hong Kong later this month. We really need to get our work permits done already. I want to go shopping!!! j/k and set up my bank account here... ^_^
