We started the day with a delicious breakfast of cheese fritters, cold cuts, fruits and vegetables.
As everyday, classes started after breakfast. Joanna’s, Mark’s and Jordan’s class set up a “super market” where the kids were selling food, clothing and toiletries. The selling and buying had to be done all in English. Megan’s, Amanda’s, Lori’s and Vanessa’s classes came to the store to “buy” the products. It was a lot of fun for everyone. Amanda’s group practiced their song, and their introduction to their presentation. Vanessa’s group collaborated with Shelby’s class and made “career cards” that had the names of the professions the kids aspired to. Lori’s group watched a DVD, learned the “I want a dog” song, and drew dogs. Erica’s group wrote a story about a rabbit, drew the rabbit and used eight adjectives to describe the rabbit. Megan’s group learned about several forms of transportation, did a word search, and practiced a song for their presentation. Amy’s group learned about zoo animals and played the game, “Mother May I” and “Go Fish”. For the fourth period Amy, Vanessa, and Amanda did a presentation about their lives and their hometowns. The kids listened intently and asked many questions.
The evening activity was “Polish Night”. The kids proudly danced the “Polonaise” and talked about the history of Poland. We learned about famous polish people like Chopin, Kościuszko, Copernicus and Marie Skłodowska Curie. It was a great evening, fun and educational. We ended the evening dancing to a song called “I Love Poland” with all the kids.
