Good day at school

Today I was taking groups of the second graders out of the class to have them practice reading in English- more for practicing literacy, phonetics, that kind of thing. The kids have so much fun with it! One girl, whom the main teacher usually dismisses as a "weak" student, was so anxious to read, and read with relative ease. One boy really loved it- even though he stumbled on a number of words, he persevered through, and at the end of the session joyfully exclaimed, "¡Cómo mola leer en inglés!" (Reading in English is so cool!)

That whole group really enjoyed the reading session. I think it must be fun for them- they spent all last year learning about the different sounds in English, and now they're putting it into practice reading. I just thought it was so cool how much they liked it, to the point where they were disappointed that time was up!

Now I see why people like to teach... it can be so difficult and challenging, but whenever you see kids get excited about whatever you're teaching, it feels awesome! It's like, "Hey, I'm doing something right!"
