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 travelchinaguide.com.
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. 🙂
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.
Blog/Tpt/YouTube: I did a short YouTube video about how I celebrate students birthdays in the VIPKID classroom! Check it out!
