Grandfather’s Heartbeat

I did harmony drawings during Winter Camp. I play a certain kind of music and they draw whatever comes to mind. (You can tie in English by having them use adjectives, etc. to describe what they drew.)

I went to this student and asked him what it was. He (his friend) told me it was his grandfather’s heartbeat. His grandfather is in the hospital.

A lot of the times we forget as Guest English Teachers that these students have lives outside of the classroom and we don;t really know whats going on with them emotionally or physically because of the language difference. I was glad he got the opportunity to express himself and release what was on his mind.

  2. Cool write-up! Previously been hunting out there for a while for some-thing reminiscent of this situation. Where exactly did you grab the answers originally from? Can you send a couple more articles for additional research.
