Having fun teaching the youngest learners!
I have been enjoying giving English lessons with the youngest kids at Vila Andrade this month. They are great learners and are picking up things very quickly. Their regular teacher told me they were doing a coloring activity one afternoon and asked her what color something was, the teacher said the color (in Portuguese), and the student said, “no, in English”! I guess my color drills are having some affect! We are also learning about numbers and are starting the alphabet.
For Children’s Day this year, the Vila Andrade project invited a theatre troupe to come and present the ‘Wizard of Oz’ – which the kids just loved!
My students at the Lar Project continue to work hard.
Some of the kids from the home portion of the Lar Project. The kids are excited to be getting a rabbit and fish pond soon on site!
