School started up again on April 3rd and will be done on June 7th. I’ve got a lot of curriculum to finish and not a lot of time left. The students are definitely ready for summer vacation, but then again so am I!
The school had a party this weekend called Journees Culturelles. It started Thursday evening with a Catholic mass on the school courtyard. Unfotunately for me, I was teaching while they were getting ready. It is hard to keep 56 students focused when there is a choir singing outside your window.
The kids love to sing!! I’ve taught them a few songs, but I believe their favorites are the chicken dance, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes, and Now it’s time to say goodbye. In Benin, they believe that everyone can sing and has a beautiful voice!
The kids came over two weeks ago write their pen pal letters and I dropped them in the post this week so hopefully they arrive at the Igo soon. It was hard to explain winter to them!
