Today’s assignment: publish a follow-up post inspired by your post from Day Nineteen. If applicable, publicize it on a social network.
Today’s assignment is to post something similar to Day 19; however I would love to be able to post a Audio File…I decided to find it on YouTube and post that. I have already posted many posts with Videos in.
I have always wanted to try playing music in the background of a class; when I was a child in Primary School one of my teachers had music playing and once a week we had a form of meditation. I felt wonderful afterwards; but then I was about ten or eleven?!
Has anyone else experienced having music played in the background of their classroom or have tried it? I have many CDs of ‘relaxation’ and ‘meditation’ music (as I meditate myself daily) and I would love to know what you all thought?
I have never seen this game before; I wonder how much it will be…
Ooh…I was thinking about using Scrabble; but this will be easier to travel with!
Today is very quiet here at work; and I have signed up to do TWO more Specialist Modules – Teaching in China and Thailand…I should start them either tomorrow or at the weekend.
However, as it is so quiet I thought that I would read some posts on the i-to- Chalkboard (I love the name for the forum…makes me smile everytime I read it); I thought that I would create a “Things to Remember” list for myself and have it here on my TEFL blog…what do you think? Good idea or not?
Here is what I have found:
“Take extra money; just in case it takes a while for the school to pay me”
oliverml mentioned this on his blog on the site; I will need to save up some more cash…
“Internet Access in China”
AnnElliott asked a question about this; I have heard many rumours about not being able to access certain websites like Facebook and LinkedIn…but I will keep looking out to see if the rumours are true or not…
“Teaching over Skype”
I have recently joined a Pen Pal site (www.penpalworld.com) and I mentioned on my profile that I am a TEFL teacher; one of the new friends I have made as asked me to help her via Skype…I want to but I have had no voice for the last few days as I have been ill. It is coming back slowly. Does anyone have any experience of doing this? any tips?
