Funnest day ever! Me and the 1st and 2nd graders at Senami Elementary School went fishing in the swimming pool today. We learned the names of things like whales, squid, octopus, starfish, and dolphins, then we imitated them in the water. Then I tossed about 40 or 50 laminated cards into the water and the students had to “fish” for the type of sea creature that I shouted out. Then the students who had cards and those who didn’t separated and the cardless kids had to catch those with the cards.
At the end we had a huge game of Marco Polo, which I don’t think the students understood very well, but was nonetheless a lot of screaming fun.
