First day of school, Austrian style
I also attended two classes of Anitha, the English teacher. That was also an interesting to do because I witnessed how little children were taught about the letter 'p' (say -puh-) in English. After that lesson they got Religion from Christine. Christine told me that most of her lessons were in German so I decided to skip that and to stay in Anitha's class. She had to teach the second class and I could see the differences in language skills, compared to the first class, right away. Two of ' my' children didn't have to go to religion and could stay in Anitha's class, so I decided to sit with them. They were doing some homework on the letter -puh- and I drew a painting for one of the children. In respond to that, he drew me a drawing which I had to colour in (see pictures, I'm sure you'll recognize it).
I had to introduce myself to the children from the second class and they got to ask me all kinds of questions. After that, they had to write at least five sentences about their weekend and out of the blue, I became their dictionairy... I got to read all their sentences and they all started with 'on the weekend I ...' This was funny to read but I could tell the inprovement they made in comparison with the first class' children.
After all, it was a nice day to start with. I really like the children and I enjoy seeing so many different cultures and characteristics in one class at such a young age! :)
Now I'm sitting here next to Christine, who is preparing for 'letter day', something I will find out tomorrow, writing my blog. And... In just a few hours I will see 'the Common Linnets' :) -whoop whoop-

How were the Common Linnets? Good to read that you are not only doing fun things like colouring in beautiful drawings at the school, but in the evenings as well.

The Common Linnets were awesome :) Ilse really enjoys performing on stage, which was very nice to see
