The snowy day

So I’m a little late with this post.  It actually snowed here in Daegu exactly one week ago.  And it snowed a lot.  (Relatively speaking of course.  Apparently Seoul got WAY more snow than us.)


Micah and I just finished up a one week English Winter Camp at Daegu Hwa-dong Elementary School.  Neither of us teach there, but that’s how winter camps work.  Native English Teachers get assigned to random schools around the city.  I was fortunate and only had to teach this one week of winter camp (I also did three days at my own school, but I don’t get paid extra for that).  Micah has another week to go at some other school across the city. 

We didn’t quite know what to expect with the camps, but the week went smoothly and it was fun.  There were eight Native Teachers assigned to this one elementary school.  Each day we had a different grade to teach.  The theme of this school’s camp was learning English through children’s books.  So we each had to pick two children’s books and create grade-appropriate lessons to go with the books.

I chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats.  The very first day, as soon as I started talking about The Snowy Dayit started to snow! Perfect timing.  🙂

During the breaks, the kids went out and played in the snow (since it doesn’t snow here often, the kids had to take advantage.  Plus, it was nearly all melted the next day).  And how nice of my 3rd grade students to bring me back a present. “Here teacher, this is for you.” 🙂

    Wow, I know that school! In fact, I’ve looked right out of that same school yard, from that angle. Creepy. I used to work P/T at Hwadong before the winter break.

    Hey Craig,
    Yeah…it’s a HUGE school. I got lost walking around in it and even after 5 days, didn’t quite know where everything was.

    We had 7 or 8 Native Teachers…but none of us actually taught there. We were wondering where the actual NET was.
