Day4- Friday – A lot to do!!! A Lot of traffic!
Everyday, my wonderful friend Mahtab, who has taken up the task of taking us to the school, lovingly picks me up and drives us from Richmond Hill to downtown Toronto! This morning, I realized that Friday is a day of traffic and even though we left really early, we barely got to class on time!
When I entered the class, to my great surprise, all the kids stood up and clapped. It was spontaneous! I was touched to receive this standing ovation! I was touched that I had received ‘Da Ai’ from the students! This was the highlight of my day! Perhaps for my week or maybe highlight of my month!
We had a lot to do and first things first, we had to give out the sheets with the suggestions for improvement! Everyone wanted to know how they are doing and progressing.
And then… each one had to quickly learn how to improve in 5 minutes and hold up the best ‘DA’ – Greatest character they could possibly write. The best writers would get a chance to write on real rice paper and ink! There was so much excitement in the class!
5 Minutes later…
And the winners are…
And then we filled another in-take form on LOVE!
This took some time introspection and some thinking
After which we let every try out with ink and rice paper
Ms Dileo loved it too!!
