Doctor Tonia...someday!

What Tiffany wants to be when she grows up...

How fun is this? Another student rises to the challenge of making a video about what she wants to be when she grows up (with input from her irrepressible little brother)!

Dove Plays Piano too!!

Dove never disappoints--she didn't want to do the music video challenge, but I begged her! I've heard her playing piano during breaks and isn't this lovely?

Jecci Plays Piano

"Jecci" accepted the music video challenge and I couldn't be more proud of her!

Bayuki: Hulusi Wind And Pipa String & Percussion Instruments

Here is my first student-made submission, playing two Chinese traditional instruments for your listening pleasure: the hulusi and the pipa! SO IMPRESSED!!

Music Video Challenge for April!

This month's TESOL challenge is to make a little music video! So many of my students play an instrument or love to sing that I figured this challenge is way overdue! One of my students actually submitted a video before I even officially issued the challenge and I will share hers with you next. SO COOL, she plays traditional Chinese instruments beautifully! For this challenge, I'm just casually singing a little snippet from my book, Twinkle and Luna.

JasonDumplingSoup Pt 2

He never leaves anything unfinished: Jason uses even fewer words, but finishes making his favorite traditional soup, then sits down and eats it! His video comes in two parts: this is part TWO.

Jason Makes Dumpling Soup Pt 1

Shy, younger student Jason uses fewer words, but shows us all how to make a favorite traditional soup! His video comes in two parts: this is part ONE.

Dove's 3 Ingredient Cookie Video

Watch out world! I can see Dove becoming some kind of multilingual video host when she grows up! She took my dog cookies' recipe, exchanged butter for butter, and turned her bake into buttery cookies for her friends. Bravo for the first submission (and it's AWESOME) for February's TESOL student video challenge! So proud of her!

First Student Dragon Video!

Students Color the Year of the Dragon, Round ONE!

It's so exciting when students follow up a creative challenge! This is my first try at something like this, but so psyched!
