Pine Grove English Camp
There is so much going on these days! We wrapped up a great English camp last week, the teachers had some fantastic team-building sessions, the drill rig is pounding away for water, we had our first ever wedding in the Plateau church, and Christmas parties are coming up!!
So, first things first: Last week Pine Grove Community Church from Wisconsin ran the first English camp of the school year.
This year, the classes were arranged a bit differently. Instead of each class having the same teacher for all subjects, the children rotated through classrooms focusing on different subjects.
Nicki taught English through geography.
The kids loved the coloring activities.
Katie was in charge of songs and chants, assisted here by Taleah. One favorite number was the Johnny Appleseed Song…
(Warning: This song could be stuck in your head for days.)
Kirstin taught vocabulary, on this day with demonstrations by Jim and Mr. Potato Head.
They held the boys in rapt attention (which is no small feat)…
…as well as the girls on the other side.
Jeff’s class was very popular: Games!
After a great week, it was time to say goodbye. The team gave out little gift bags as a parting present.
The kindergartners were too small to participate in the English camp, but they certainly didn’t go away empty-handed. Balloons made their day.
For the final luncheon with the teachers, the group sang them a Christmas carol. After the English version, Almaïs helped them out with the Creole version of the same song.
And of course, we finished off the week with CAKE! Thank you Pine Grove Community Church!
