My pupils were very excited and curious to find out the next step, what will they have to do next? When I pronounced the word puppets, I saw different reactions, from excitement to confusion.
“Puppets, miss? What shall we do? How, when, why?”
Yes, they had lots and lots of questions. After I managed to explain to them what they have to do, the magic happened. They all started:
“Miss, I’m going to talk about children that are bullied at school.”
“I’m going to talk about a little girl that has no family.” and so on, and so far.
I was simply dazzled by the results, I couldn’t have asked for more. Seeing their faces glow and their excitement grow bigger as their projects were catching life, my heart grew bigger and bigger with joy and love and hope for my little ones. They worked on modal verbs using can/can’t, must/mustn’t, should/shouldn’t, or different figures of style from impersonation to comparison. We had a blast!
I truly believe the world will be a better one because of them!
