Hahaha YES, a bit a struggle my first day was, got so tied up in the morning getting a re-stamp for my new passport to the new immigration office and had to run to work getting rid of being late. Just whew, didn't have any clue that it would take more than an hour to get the transaction done.
Anyway, I had a good time in classes and I got to school early hehe. I just see to it I had the "firsts" in the year documented, not all though hehe!
Monday blues aren't in my vocabulary, with these both fun and great students no teacher would ever find Monday a pain.
It's no surprise to have lesser attendance after mid-terms, I don't know well, perhaps the students give themselves a break; however, I'm thankful that at least many still showed up. There were still absences though but not that many.
We had the pair work speaking activities, they just had to add on some details to make the conversation pratices. Due to time constraints, reading was allowed but not entirely in the whole presentation, glances were better encouraged and speaking of "firsts" they did it well!
These show how they prepare for the speaking presentations, yes, including scratching the head loolol!
And I was surprised I got Hersheys from a Thai colleague next to my room, this was a New Year gift. He just went inside so I had to stop discussing and he handed me this. I thought that was being kind and nice. Hersheys summed up my classes, I sat down and took my choc grab before I left the room. Hmm,,of course smiling as I'm pleased how my day went.
The first day was over, I was admittedly exhausted getting into the routine again but yes, I survived! lolol!
