Open classes @ work: parents watching a lesson

This week I've had "open classes" at work. Moms and dads are invited to join in on a 30 minute lesson. Basically this is to show the parents that their money is being put to good use. Come watch your children learn and speak English! Yay!

Here are chairs laid out at the back of my class. The classrooms are not very big (14 desks max) so the addition of parents made it a tight squeeze. Notice how I neatly laid out brochures and pencils (thanks to my days working in banquets at the Delta Victoria)

Drawing images on the board is a great way for students to understand and comprehend what's going on in a story. Here's a little scene I erased just before the parents arrived. A group of men are lost at the South Pole while exploring in the early 1900s. A seal was about to attack one man but his buddy with a rifle comes and saves the day. Notice the effects of a red marker to indicate blood. Hee hee.
