One time,when meeting with the Governor of County of Siedlce, he remarked that early in the time of Global Volunteers here they were puzzled by the fact that the volunteers taught English using games and songs, having fun. But after awhile they began to see that it worked.
Today I tried Hokey-Pokey for the first time with this group. I always start it and then we go around the circle and each child selects something to put in. I was really pleased today when words like hair and shoulder were offered.
But Polish schools also know how to teach children with fun.
Today we were invited to go outdoors with the children to a concert by Limbos, a group that specializes in school performances.
When I put something on Facebook about this group, one of my former students, now a university student commented this group is a great favorite of all school children in Siedlce County.
Here are a couple of photos of the kindergarten group that I worked with on Friday.
The video below is a very short view of one selection in the concert. I was surprised to hear Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
When the concert was over I realized the kindergarten students had been sitting on mats taken from the nearby gymnasium, while the older children were sitting on benches and chairs. And look, they all had removed their shoes before stepping on the mats.
