i taught a lesson at school today
and the theme was "london".
i did a little presentation
using photos from the first time i ever went to london
(with my parents/sisters).
it was a 5th grade class (the year they first start learning english).
none of them had been to london before
so i thought they'd really get a kick out of my photos;
abbey road*, platform 9 3/4, buckingham palace, hyde park,
hampton court palace, double decker buses, etc.
what did they want to talk about the whole time?
how pretty my sisters are.
what are their names?
how old are they?
where do they live?
do they speak german, too?
etc.
maybe next time i'll just do the lesson on my sisters.


* i was so surprised by how many of students recognized abbey road! these kids were born in 2000 and they still know the beatles.  it made me so very happy.
