My English Winter Camp students will learn to sing this song. The theme of the camp is Canada. Hockey being an important cultural Icon to Canada, I decided to incorporate a whole day’s worth of learning to hockey.
Students will learn hockey related vocabulary and play some in-class broom ball. Finally, they will learn to sing this song by Stompin’ Tom Connors.
The past couple weeks, I had to painfully teach a lesson that contain some erroneous facts. Links to the course content videos are below. Each lesson we’re required to sing the song in the textbook. This week, the song was too much. I refused to show it to my class. Instead, I did a cover of a different song on my ukulele. Maybe you’ll recognize it from your childhood. I also mixed in clips from the original video, mainly for my students….and also because they’re hilarious. The students were [un]lucky, as they got a live performance of this song. We sang this song together on my ukulele. It went over well, especially considering the fact that none of my grade 6’s ever like to sing.
Don’t Want To Live on The Moon – Sesame Street
“Lesson 14 – Would You Like To Come To My House”
This was the title of the Grade 6 lesson I had to teach for the past 2 weeks. There’s nothing unusual about this lesson, except for one thing. Rather than explain it, I’ll just show you.
Okay, so maybe you noticed it first time around. If you didn’t catch it, the video for the next day of this lesson will point it out as well.
… Did you get it that time? There’s no way you could miss it. But… just in case you did…. there’s another video for the next day of activities… well, it’s actually a song.
Alright, so this is a little concerning. A whole generation of Korean kids are growing up thinking that people in the outside world don’t take off their shoes in their homes. They’re basically demonizing the Western world as being a primitive kind of folk, one who walks in and smears dog crap all over their carpets. This kind of makes sense when you understand how xenophobic Koreans can be.
In the coming weeks, I’ve had to answer countless questions about whether I wear my shoes in my home. I tell them repeatedly that I do take off my shoes, and so does everyone that I know.
I bought a ukulele here in Korea for a decent price. Paid $60 for it off of craigslist, which is a bargain compared to it’s retail cost ($180). Anyways, here’s a vid of me jamming on it to Priscilla Ahn’s song “Find My Way Back Home”.
I’m in desperate need of vocal lessons, I know. But hopefully I’ll get there eventually.
And… here’s how it’s supposed to be done. Gawddd I’m in love with her voice.
