Thursday was neon day at school; the girls were to wear anything neon and the day was full of music and dancing and a whole lot of fun! The auditorium was turned into a glow in the dark room with black lights that made everything glow (including our lips thanks to some special glowing lipgloss!) and everything looked pretty awesome! I thought it would be cool to decorate the walls so had cut up stars of different sizes to put everywhere which I have to say looked pretty cool! We also had a huge inflatable slide set up in the playground which us teachers obviously had to make sure was child proof lol I struggled with my camera settings hence the blurry photography lol and second graders aren’t always the best at taking pictures at times but here’s a snippet of what went down! xo.
Really random post but aren’t abayas just the greatest?! about to make some pancakes because why not (they’ve been my latest addiction) and of course you can’t have them without a cup of tea am I right?! Lo and behold we were out of milk and it was one of those ugh can’t be bothered to get dressed and go down and get some from the bakala buttt a whoosh of my abaya and my scruffy polkadotted-pajama clad self was ready to go lol literally a second to throw on, a wrappity wrap wrap and all done! pancakes and Pocahontas2 to end the night; yass movie on a school night! lol did you know there was a Pocahontas2?!! I had no idea! enjoy your evening wherever you are!xo.
So the school decided to move the Earth Day free dress day to this Thursday instead of cancelling it all together which was awesome because I got to do my little ‘craft’ with my class. The kids were allowed to wear whatever they wanted as long as they had some earth colours (blue, green, brown etc.) which some of them stuck to…! we spent the afternoon watching ‘Over the Hedge’ which was essentially about destroying forests to build neighborhoods and it’s effect on the animals lol not sure if the kids got the bigger picture but it was fun nonetheless! I had them make their own dirt&worms ie. earth..soil..earth day..?! (Crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate pudding, and gummy worms!) it was our first time being able to do something hands on and following a procedure but they had a blast and loved eating their little treat!
Although Earth Day is on April 22nd, our school dubbed this week ‘Earth Week’ as we’re off during that week. Display boards were to be changed and we introduced students to the 3 R’s, which was kind of new to them because there isn’t as advanced of a recycling system in Kuwait like what we’re typically used to. The girls loved the display because they stuck on their own snack wrappers/garbage on the appropriate bags and were visually able to see how to sort garbage! yay! We watched the Lorax yesterday which they loved and our new favourite song is ‘Let it Grow’ (our second favourite is ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen..!) I had planned a really cute and delish activity for them to make and eat today, BUT school was sporadically cancelled for students today being the last day before break and all so my plans kind of flopped lol but we’ll try and squeeze it in when we’re back! Happy early Earth Day! xo.
