Today we had our last day of teaching with one of the groups. Since Friday, when we first started teaching and working with a group of class 4, there has been a lot of improvement. The determination to learn about scratch was always high everyday with these kids. Today, they finished their projects about Barbados. The kids came up with fantastic and exciting ideas and it was very neat to watch them accomplish their projects! It was a very successful day. The end of class was sad because we wouldn't be teaching them again but it was a very fun and successful time and we will be able to see them around school! Although we are the teachers, I am learning a ton from the students. Whether its learning new things about myself or Barbados! This has been such a great experience so far and I am excited to meet the new group of kids we will be teaching till the end of the trip. We have a day off tomorrow, so we will hopefully shop and go to the beach! Skylar and I will teach a group by ourselves, but with Ms. Davis there, starting on Thursday! I am preparing for that. Although it will be tough, it is manageable and I'm very excited for it!
After teaching today we went to a beach that is close by to us. The same beach where we go to swim with the turtles. It was nice to be able to just lay and swim and relax. The teaching is very tiring, therefore the down time is very nice. Skylar bought me a pretty necklace from a guy who was walking around selling them :) I am enjoying myself here!
