Laura’s VIPKID Week in Review: October 5th, 2018

Best Moment: This is a short week for me!  I took Saturday off because I am going to a Women’s Conference with my church!  I love the flexibility with this job!

This week was a holiday week in China, their National Day, when they became the People’s Republic of China.  Because of this, students were traveling!  One of my students did a lesson in a car!  One of my students did his lesson in a tent, camping by the mountains!  So fun!

Here is a simple explanation of the holiday from

Worst Moment: I don’t really have a worst moment this week.  I had slightly lower bookings and a few open bookings expire, which I haven’t had in a while.

Rewards: This week I let the kids choose between the phone/emoji reward and my ice cream reward.  The emoji reward is from Special Stuff for Special Teachers on TeachersPayTeachers!   Thank you for the free download!  This has been a total hit!  I thought the ice cream reward was kind of childish, but even some of my Level 3 kids chose it.  🙂  IMG_7494 3.JPG

News/Updates: Just news about the holiday and bookings being lower.  This week, I also completed a new certification: Free Talk.  This is a supplementary class that is meant to promote free conversation, using un-scripted chatting about setting pictures.  I’m excited about it.  This summer, I did many supplementary classes (phonics, proper pronunciation, voice of VIPKID) and enjoyed the change of pace with the different type of class.

These are the supplementary classes I’m certified for!
