|Learning Numbers in a game like "Musical Chairs"|
|Camp A Graduation!|
Our second group of different kids has presented a different dynamic in the classroom. We now have 18 students in our camp and I am working with a different co-teacher, Diego. This time, our students’ favorite game has been learning professions with charades. They loved acting out the professions in front of their peers and guessing, “He is a doctor!” while the student acting would respond, “I am a doctor!” I told them, “You are all actors!” For this camp, we also have the opportunity of having a teacher-training expert from PAUTA (“Programa Adopte Un Talento”), an incredible Mexican organization that does science training for talented high-school students, to come to Costa Rica and work with our JumpStart students. The teacher-trainer, Richard, will be here for the week helping incorporate science into our English language learning. Today he led the students in a math and English activity strategy game with buttons and the students loved it. It will be fun to see what he has in store for them for the rest of the week!
