These first graders from Dong-Ao Elementary are all about the camera. That's Ricky flexing up front; he was toothless little monster who did a great "H-huh-Horse" impression, jumping up for a full-fledged "neeeeeeeigh"
That's Brian, my wonderful co-teacher from the two aboriginal schools (Dong-Ao and Ao-Hua). He really knew how to get these active kids to at least direct some attention; everything was done in sing-song, with chanting and rhythmic sentence patterns, and there were frequent breaks for chasing kids around the room, eventually corralling them into a London Bridge's circle, collapse, and "5,4,3,2,1 back to your seats!" Needless to say, it was tiring. Brian's energy: endless.
