pancakes!


It has been a busy last couple days at work. I worked all day Thursday only to come home and whip out 74 silver dollar pancakes for Friday afternoon. I work Tuesday and Friday afternoons in a local private school giving English lessons to little kids (K-2) . As yesterday was the Friday before a 2-week vacation I decided that there was no point doing a big lesson cause the kids are bouncing off the walls anyway!

So as we had been studying food (with the help of the Very Hungry Caterpillar) I decided to have a little American goûter. I told the kids to bring in pancake toppings and drinks and I brought the pancakes. They were a big hit! The kids loved them (of course when anything is topped with nutella French kids love it but I'd like to think it was mostly the pancakes!)

I'll leave you with some pictures of the kiddies. The 1st one is a picture of my 2 older classes, 1st and 2nd graders, we did a combined class snack which is why the some of the kids are sitting on the floor. The 2nd and 3rd pictures are my littl'uns, they are 4 and 5 years old. Those are some happy kids!

CUTE! This week in my 4-year-olds class the kids and I made little birthday cakes (our grammar this week was "How old are you?"). They were so funny, they kept explaining to each other how to color their cakes EXACTLY LIKE MINE. And Nene got upset because she made a mistake on hers and couldn't erase it, so I gave her mine instead. LOL Reminder: next time bring extra copies...

This must be the week for pancakes, I had friends that each made them with their classes as well! You're lucky you got to take pictures, when I tried to take some Thurs of my kids, the teacher told me it was against the law to take photos without having written permission from the parents first!

yumm pancakes, there were some leftover so i popped them in the toaster the next morning and ate 'em up with syrup and bananas yum!
yes, this is a real law and you do need to be careful, but when i took out my cameras none of the teachers thought it was weird and i also took lots of pictures of all of the kids, not just zooming in on 1 or 2. (was also a private school, i don't think that matters but maybe it does...?)

oh who knows, it probably applies to private schools too, but you know how it works - people here only follow the rules when they feel like it! sometimes that can be an advantage, but other times it can be a huge pain in the ass!
