Today was the day of the Class 1 birthday party!They were so excited when they realized what was happening.
We started the class learning a short 'birthday dialog' in English.
I had to make it at least mildly educational.
Then, the homeroom teacher put a candle in EVERY cupcake.
The children had to perform the dialog with me in order to receive their cupcakes. All of them sat patiently until everybody had a one and all of the candles were lit.
Then after the cupcakes were consumed, the kids sang songs and did little dances. The Chinese LOVE to perform; it really makes a party for them.
Obligatory group picture. The lady who is not looking at the camera is a dorm mother.
They are so sweet.
