The kindergarten lesson today went exceedingly well. They weren't old enough to be able to write the alphabet (nor was there a blackboard available), so I couldn't do alphabet races. Instead, I added an activity from a book Mom gave me in which the students place a piece of colored paper (ninja star) on a specified part of the body. They really liked the ninja stars--a number of them had fun quoting from the anime series Naruto during break time--and they enjoyed trying to balance the stars on their head or nose or elbow or whatever. I finished off the class by having them dance to "Hokey Pokey" while using the same body part terms, and they liked that a lot too.
In other random news, I used my new blender to make myself an ice cream shake. That was fun. ^_^
