So the end of school was a tornado. After all my finals I still got out with a 4.0! Then I took my first SAT Subject Test (Math II :) ) -- so I my schoolwork and exams kinda pushed themselves to the top of my priority list. Never fear! That is all over now! Well... not really - I still have giant PSAT workbooks and stuff BUT that won't be too bad. So I will be spending the majority of my time dedicated to my project.
So it's Saturday now I will be going to meet the principal/priest day after tomorrow and I will set up a couple days to work.
Until then I will be scrambling to put together the final touches on my 2016 curriculum - I am so excited (and nervous and freaking out and screaming on the inside).
There should be about three classes - one for beginner, intermediate, and then upper-intermediate. Beginner will be just vocab and phrases and then for intermediate I will add in some skits and finally for upper-intermediate I... am kind of lost. My initial plan was to do tenses (past, present, future) because the kids last year seemed really interested. But I am going to go in with an open mind and ask them what they want to learn.
So until then I will be sitting about working on my curriculum and applying like 8 coats of deodorant cuz it is HOT out here. (The electricity keeps shutting off - and when it does I basically find myself flopping around trying not to die of heat stroke).

Hi! I'm Samalya. When I'm not running about cramming for school I sit on my laptop and (attempt to) make a curriculum to improve spoken English in rural Sri Lanka!
