The Wild Ones in Općina

Today I finished a five morning exploration of Maurice Sendak‘s ‘Where the wild things are‘ with a bunch of ten teenage English language learners .  It was a a great week for me, I only hope that they thought likewise.

As well as reading, watching and sequencing the story in its entirety, we delved into it and tried to squeeze as much out of the book as we could. We used it to teach us the differences between real and imaginary worlds. We  took from it the meanings of  ‘making mischief’ and ‘wild rumpus’.  It inspired us to explore Earthly forests and animal coverings, sea voyage and ocean life, body parts of the most savage kind, and what we ourselves would do if we were all crowned kings and queens of the Wild Things.

To finish it all off, in a most wild and ethical way, we adopted a gray wolf through the World Wildlife Fund.

Maybe It’s Because I’m a Londoner

Here is one of London’s most famous ditties.  It is dedicated to one of my Opčina classes, who recently sang it to me as a surprise. Well done, kids. 🙂

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
When walking up and down
Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London Town

Easy Guitar

My part in this year’s Easy Guitar summer camp is over. I am sure that the kids had a great time. It was a fantastic week, but I am already thinking about how to make next year’s camp even better.
