Ice cream most delicious

When I first started teaching at Jincheon Elementary, I told all of my classes that I would give the top class in each grade a really great prize at the end of the year.  I used a star-reward system.  At the beginning of each class, I would draw three stars on the board.  And I would erase them, one-by-one, if the class was too noisy, rude, not trying, etc.  So, it’s the end of the year and I counted up the winners for each grade (3rd thru 6th) and handed out ice cream bars yesterday. 

Side note: Ice cream makes Korean students go into a frenzy.  They LOVE ice cream.  It’s the perfect reward.  And since I was ordering in bulk, I was able to snag a great discount from the market next to my school (and free delivery to my office). 🙂

Some of my 6th grade girls found out ahead of time about the ice cream prize and were sweet (hee hee) enough to make me a homemade “thank you/farewell” card.  They are graduating this year and are off to middle school – many will move on to Micah’s school.

Here are some of their messages:

  • “Lisa teacher. Hello Teacher! Thank you and I will eat delicious.”
  • “Teacher. Wow! I love you so much.”
  • “Hello baby (my nickname). I’m very love you.”
  • “Lisa Teacher. I will eat ice cream. When I go to Daejin middle school I will study with your boyfriend. “
  • “Lisa Teacher I always tease girl, but I will change. Thank you.”
  • “Lisa Teacher, I think ice cream most delicious.”
