the other days, teacher Xu had a very special math class. she stuck some questions on the wall, desk, chairs, boards. and let students find the questions and answer them by themselves. it is like adventure. everyone is excited to do that, which makes a boring math class vivid.
our forth graders have a spark class every A day. students will be separated to different small groups. before that, they have freedom to choose the class that they are interested in. like teacher Xu, she will have Chinese chess class. and teacher Guo, she will have taiji.
recently, we are practicing our Chinese new year performance. we all got together in teacher Wang’s apartment and brought some food for our hotpot party. we practiced our dance and songs. and at the same time, we cooked. in the snowy day, what a happy day to have hotpot with all the friends.
our class had a pajama party. everyone wore their pajama and also brought their blanket to school. in the quiet time, teacher gave them ten minutes to take a nap and relax. the whole class seemed peaceful and relaxing.
all the friends of my host family came our house. we cooked turkey and duck, and also ours friends brought many food. before dinner, we stand in a circle and hold our hand to thank each other .we drink and watch football game. it is a very fun night.
This week, we had field trip and there are so much fun. we went to two parks. one is Lion Park and the other is Minnesota Interstate Park. we learned a lot and enjoyed nature with my students.
