Last week, our students asked, ” When do we make ornaments this year?”
Today, we have officially started making ornaments in our classes.
We write our names and the date on the back of each ornament to help remind us later of the struggles and accomplishments we had throughout the year.
Holidays like these are times to remember and make even more special memories. We hope to share our family traditions with all of our students as well.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Hope everyone is enjoying getting ready to celebrate this holiday season.
Last week and this week, Mattison English is making salt dough ornaments with our students as a holiday activity.
While we’re making ornaments, we talk to students about the good things and bad things that happened this year, places they went, new things they tried, friendships and families etc… really festive!
But even during fun activities, we still challenge our students to talk all in English. Being able to tell their feelings in English isn’t an easy task to most of our students. It takes a total balance of a creative thinking, grammar skills, and enough vocabulary.
But what we really focus on the most is “the relationship” between each of our individual students and us.
That is the feeling which makes them want to talk to us.
Nobody wants to talk or share their feelings with someone they don’t like.
Luckily, our students had so much to talk about and the time just flew right by. We love our students and we want to continue keeping these great relationships with them.
Mattison English will be closed from 12/24~1/2 for holiday season.
