Update: English Camp (week 2 & 3)

I'm in my 3rd week of winter camp. Not much has changed, except that I have fewer students, some of which are just way too hyper! My 5th grade class has only 4 boys and they're all boys. I was teaching them parts of the body - simple things: leg, hand, fingers, arm, neck etc...

I guess boys will be boys regardless of where they're from or their age. They had to label each other with Post It's and for some reason they thought it hilarious to place these labels on their crotch. Sigh...

So I tried another activity with them. I taught them how to speak of ailments when they go to the doctor, like how to say "My arm is sore" or "I have a headache"

I had them do role plays - one was a doctor, while the other was a patient. And I gave them toilet paper to use as 'bandages'.

And then there are students who are just exceptional...like these:

These are my all time favourite 6th grade students. ...love them to bits!
