I’m really having fun with my class these days.  Last week we did the seed planting, then today we made paper butterflies.  The butterflies were huge and I was really impressed with what the kids did.  Some kids made the wings symmetrical even though I didn’t ask them to or say anything about that.  I put them up around the room and the whole place looks like it belongs to them now.  The classroom is messier than I’m used to, but also very cheerful.  The students respond so positively to  me and really enjoy all the things we do.  They are picking up English effortlessly and I never have to force them to use it.  I’m really pleased with their progress.
