I love the International program because it gives me an opportunity to work as an English Languages Arts Teacher, not an ESL teacher. This means we study the English language on a deeper level. We look for meaning in writing and strives to use everything we learn in a creative way.
This week we just wrapped up our unit on literary devices, which the kids and I really enjoyed! Student had the opportunity to explain Idioms through art.
Wrote stories using their own onomatopoeias.
And created their own sentences and phrases using alliteration.
Even though are schedule is crammed full of things to do and learn, we still make time for some review games and birthday cake.
