Goodmorning everyone! For the past few days I have been teaching at Prakash Deep School. The older classes are in exams still so I have been teaching the junior classes. I am teaching Music and Drawing but I also help the teachers with whatever they need, such as correcting classwork or helping the children with their work. Monday I taught an English class as well as drawing. Yesterday Allison and I went with Dr. Savitta to another location of the school. We were given a presentation of what they have been working on. They are all younger children, so this included rhymes, the alphabet, and numbers 1-100 (all in both Hindi and English). I also played guitar for them a little bit and then we turned it into a game similar to musical chairs, which they enjoyed. Today I helped Dr. Savitta prepare the exams for the standard 6 class and then I taught a music class. I played a few songs on guitar for them as well and then I taught them London Bridge, If You're Happy and You Know It, Twinkle Twinkle Iittle Star, and Bingo. After they learned these, they sang me a few of the ones they already knew. Most of them I had never heard before. After Music class I helped correct their math and english work and passed out their lunches. Monday night after dinner we taught Pooja and Simpy (two of the students living in the host family) how to play Phase 10. They loved it and want to play again tonight! I will most likely be at the school for the rest of the week and hopefully traveling this weekend. Hope everyone has a great day at work and school!!!
