Chalk this one up under weird things. One day I was walking along the sidewalk by my old classroom and heard this incredible buzzing sound. Turns out there were hundreds of flies gathered on the tree beside the sidewalk. I've never seen such a phenomenon before and I'm not quite sure what would cause them to gather like that but there they were.
I had a moment of panic last night which has now become the motivation for this post. You see, one of my students last year drew an amazing picture at the end of the year, full of detail and humour and I thought I had downloaded it and so I deleted it off my camera. But then I couldn't find it anywhere on my computer. Thankfully, my external hard drive saved the day and I can share this gem with the world.
My students were reflecting on how God had helped them in the past year and this is what this little guy had to say.
Note the towering stack of paper, the rubbish bin full of scrunched up attempts and the one about to hit the trash. Clearly it was hard work learning to write in Korean!
This little guy is Italian. He came into my classroom with no English at all. He had already begun to learn French so I could communicate with him through that. I have to say I have never seen a student learn a language like this guy did.
