Introducing President's Day and Firefighters!!

This week was a quick one, but very tiring. Monday and Tuesday were my only full teaching days. Sometimes you just have one of those weeks. On Wednesday my students took their English proficiency test. I was so nervous throughout the whole thing and I hope they did well! Thursday was early release and today was... FIRE FIGHTER DAY!! I have been arranging a firefighter to come visit for the past few months and today was finally the day that my students got to meet him. I didn't tell them about the visit until minutes before we left. They were so excited and so was I. I have a couple pictures to share with you from today.

The firefighter that came was AMAZING!! We was great with the kids and had them interact with his presentation. After his presentation was over, he had us simulate smoke with gray fabric that the kids had to crawl under. I have to admit, I was a little frightened when 100 second graders started stampeding towards me, but it was fun.
Afterwards, we went outside and we got to go into the fire truck. I've never seen my students so happy. They needed this fun little presentation after a stressful week of testing.
When we weren't taking tests or putting out fires, we were starting our study on presidents. We started by using Cara Carrol's
Here is my favorite one. I love how he's winking. When my student turned in his paper I said,"What's wrong with his eye?" He then said, "He's winking, like this." and gave me a little wink. Haha, so cute!!!
