First Day o’ School (…dum dum dum!)

September 19, 2011

Freshly sharpened pencils, brand new white board markers and stickers… it must be the first day of school! All I forgot were the rainboots…apparently, tsunami season has hit Prague before it’s even technically fall! Alright, maybe that’s a little dramatic…

Anyway, my job is to teach English to 1st, 2nd, and 5th grades, with a little preschool thrown in. I’m lucky enough to have a Czech aid for each of my classes, and my aid for today is super sweet and creative, and I know we’re going to have tons of fun together! We ran our first 5th grade class like the pros that we soon will be J

Last weekend I partook in the 2nd Prague Scavenger Hunt. Now this, friends, was the epitome of breaking all social appropriateness in the Czech Republic. Tasks included staging imaginary tennis and basketball matches in busy streets, running around like superheroes, darting Mission Impossible-style through Tesco, having a dance competition for strangers, asking for directions in ridiculous ways, having the man put on eyeshadow and ask for high heels from a very stern salesperson… the list goes on and on. We shared photos and videos at the end, and enjoyed some pints and grub with new friends!
