Alphabets for (Chinese) Christmas

December 29, 2009

Thanks to everyone who donated to my little Alphabets for (Chinese) Christmas project, the first graders and sixth graders of the good old Nanshan Bilingual School are now sporting Pinsetter alphabet buttons, which were very beautifully made my Busy Beaver Button Co.

Besides the obvious fact that first graders are way cuter than sixth graders, I took a lot more pictures of my frist grade classes simply because there was more time between classes. We crammed in a three-event English Olympics plus pin distribution into the sixth grade class period and there wasn't much time left over to take pictures.

My original goal was also to give pins to my seventh grade classes. (Every week I have first grade classes and then I alternate weeks between sixth and seventh grade.) This week was to be my seventh grade week, but I was told on Monday that all the classes are cancelled because they are preparing for final exams. So I gave almost all the remaining pins to the primary school English teachers, who will most likely give them to students as prizes.

Best of all, first thing Monday morning I went in to a first-grade class and they were all wearing their pins! So thank you all, again.

There are a lot of pictures of kids with the letters pinned on upside down or sideways. This is hopefully not a reflection of my teaching.
