When I got to school my lesson had already started, so they just swapped it to be exactly when I got there. I’m not sure when anything is – no one seems to tell me exactly when. It is a different way of doing things.
While P4 had maths I went to the library and read the story Ivan wrote, which is about his life. It is something that I can work with to do a few different things. I’ll get a printed copy bound – a few copies even – and also I will get Ivan to do some illustrations and then make it into a PSB. We can either get it published by an independent publisher or by a more recognised Christian publisher. Ivan is excited about it, but doesn’t seem to understand most of it. But he is very proud of it, as he should be.
I took a photo of the P4 mathematics work – very different from what grade 3s do in Australia!
After lunch I went into P4, thinking that I would observe a class. The children were leading Praise and Worship. Their teacher came in, and after 5 minutes, asked me if I wanted to teach. I asked him what the subject was. “Story time,” he said. “Story time?” “Yes, you tell them a story.” “A… Bible story? You mean, it is RE class?” “Yes. Tell them a Bible Story.” So I told them the SIV (Sam’s Interpreted Version) of Joseph, which was my Sunday School lesson that I had prepared but hadn’t done. Apparently it was a big success, because several teachers (including ones who weren’t there) have told me that it was a great class, which is pretty good!
I went on the internet at the café again, and tried to sort out an issue that is happening with uni. I think I got it all sorted.
After that I went to one of the craft shops in town, and bought 2 necklaces, which I will use to make bags.
