My class has teamed up with the sixth grade classroom (of a woman I really respect) in the U.S. this year. They are email penpals. It turns out that half my students know more about computers than I do and half of them don't know how use Google.
I love the things they are sharing about culture, their faith, and life in general. Let me share with you some of the things my students find important to share with their peers (Please enjoy their ESL English):
"We have six computers. We don’t live in huts."
"I’m bilingual, that means I know two languages. I know Yura and Spanish. Do you know any other languages besides English? Have you ever heard about yura? Do you have any indian
blood in you?"
"I am in a Christian school, we believe that GOD came to earth to save us from are sins. Which belief do you believe? I think that GOD is very good."
"I get [along] better with my mom, than with my father. I have a little sister. O
she is such a taller tiller [tattletale]."
"My fathers are still married (In Spanish padres means mother and father)."
"I have a question for you, how is you teacher? Is she Crazy like mine? HaHaHa (You wouldn't believe how many of these comments there were)"
"My grand father was at world war two in the german side. His name is
Manfred he is already dead he died because his heart stopped beating."
"I am an American but I am a missionary here. I preach with my parents Christianity (I love that he calls himself a missionary. It's so true!)."
Just wanted you to get to know my students a little better.
