One of the things that we are doing to keep the kids relaxed during this week is a LOT of songs! At the end of the recess/lunch period all the students line up with their classmates in a large open patio. Each group is with their teacher and they go through their daily prayers and line up routines. At the very end of this time, the CMU students gather with Norma at the front of the huge group, and we lead everyone in singing!
Our primary songs are Alive Awake Alert Enthusiastic, Father Abraham, She'll be Coming 'Round the Mountain, and The Froggy Song. Honestly I can't get those songs out of my head. :)
The students all LOVE the songs and it is a wonderful way for them to practice their English. Each songs has actions that the students have gotten used to over the past week. There is nothing cooler then seeing hundreds of elementary school students singing and doing actions to these simple songs!
Please wish our students the best over exam week!
