This week has gone by really quickly. Nothing too exciting really happened until Thursday. Let me set up it all up for you. So I get to school, and it seems like just a regular day, the kids all run to me when they see me and they I count down from 5 to have them take there seats, but then theres some other kid in my room. I ring the button (we have a summons button for our assistant teachers) and I say "who is this kid, is he in another class" and that is when I am informed that I have a new student named Patrick, and that that is that kid. So then I spent the whole day trying to get him to talk to me, but he wont even smile. UNLESS I HAND OUT JELLY BEANS. I handed a lot of jelly beans out on Thursday. OK, so then comes Friday. Friday was field trip day, and I didn't know where we were going, all I was told was "a museum" so we get loaded in the buses and start heading out. 40 minutes is a long time for kids to sit in a bus. a real long time. We get to the museum and we get all the kids inside and start looking at stuff, and then after what seemed like 20 minutes, we go to a playground and then board the buses and leave. So quick. I have uploaded some pictures from the field trip, I took about 90, but I am not putting them all up on here.
Leo, I think he saying something along the lines of "Hello Mr. Steinsland" The reason I think that is because he says that ALL the time.
Judy and Leo in front of the fake castle.
Me and my class. and Ms. Joel is in the picture too. (She is my Assistant Teacher, but she does a lot of work. especially when the kids cry.)
Pots. they are playing with pots. Except Judy, I have no idea what she is doing, probably touching a plaque?
Leo got bored with this real quick. I think he is the oldest kid in my class, but he gets real emotional real quick. (one time he cried because he answered 3 questions in a row and I said "good job, but now we need to let someone else answer ok?" and he cried because he still wanted to answer the questions)
Patrick and Katie. There were some oddly shaped blocks that you can build some building with, Im not too sure on the specifics because I cannot read nor understand Hangul.
Tall guy is Phil, he taught my kids last year. I am conditioning them to think he is terrible, but we are pretty good friends, I just want my kids to stop running out of the room when he walks by. So they must hate him.
This is a hut, I have no idea if it is supposed to be a Korean hut or not, quite frankly I'm still not sure if this was a museum of Korean history, Asian history, or just mishmashed cultures. It pretty much looked like a Native American hut though.
