Our lesson was about anger. Each student wrote on a piece of paper what they felt angry about. Then they crumpled the paper up into a ball. The next step was to release the anger. We use a hilarious game to release energy and teach a lesson. The students try and throw the wad of paper into the teachers wide open mouth. If anybody succeeds, they win a dollar. One student (for the first time ever) won a dollar.
Amongst our discussions today, was the story of Les Miserable and how we should treat everybody with respect - we just might change a life. We discussed the bad effects of cigarettes. We talked about psychology and the word haughty. These students were sharp!
