HAHAHA oh man I just spent the past half an hour sitting in the canteen of unity primary watching NDP songs/MVs playing on the tv… It’s kinda nice and nostalgic and I feel like i’ve experienced this NDP-songs-playing-endlessly-during-recess-thing.
Anyway, I’m actually supposed to be down at Marina Square for some YOG training that’s apparently from 1000-2200. And I just called my friend asking about what they’ve done so far and the answer was -(haha should I be surprised?) NOTHING. Whoa wts man. They’ve just been sitting around.chitchatting and waiting out the rain since reporting at 10am.
I am secretly thankful I chose to work instead, and I’m now still being paid to watch NDP MVs HAHAHAHA. We’re waiting for a later period which was scheduled in last minute.
Sigh, this rainy weather is making me feel extremely sleepy and I was yawning nonstop in class just now.
Today we did observations for 2 P5 English classes and oh god I was so horrified by the first. (This explains a few tweets.)
Ok haha incidentally one of the lessons was on facts VS opinions, so yes the following are all opinions, not facts.
Firstly, the teacher speaks damn softly, in an uninterested and can’t-really-be-bothered way. It was raining heavily, I was standing at the back of class and I could hardly hear anything. Haii. So, it was a compo class and the teacher conducted a brief discussion and got them to write a first draft.
She wrote some instructions on the board, and to my horror she actually spelt “…hand in seperately.”
…. speechless. It’s not my place to correct her or whatever, but it’s really horrifying seeing such abomination presented to a class of 30 P5 students.
Then I started reading the students’ work pasted on the “Creative Corner” board at the back of class, and they were all full of mistakes. “I wish for Singapore to be more saffer.” Then something about “coulor”, and “resbonsible”. OMG SERIOUSLY. IT WAS AN OBVIOUS B.
Ok just finished the last lesson. Haha somehow some class were singing Where I Belong in the hall,and we could hear it from the classroom. It’s actually kinda cute and heartwarming to see the kids in my class mouth/softly sing along, though in the middle of compre class. Hahaha! Towards the end of class, they suddenly became very enthusiastic about volunteering their answers… because it was the last lesson and the faster they finish the earlier they all get to go home. HAHAHA great, this act of self-interest actually benefits everyone else and probably makes the teacher feel better that the class is not all comatose.
