Mobile Phones in the Classroom!

By 5 years ago
Categories Pokhara

Our two Childacare volunteers that are in Nepal at the moment decided to be brave and take on some older classes at Little Daffodils.  Grades 2 to 5 are a far cry from the little tackers of the nurseries they normally work in but the girls had planned well.   Kristina and Judith added some flare to a basic English greeting conversation lesson by turning it into a phone conversation.   The girls made phones from paper cups and string and wrote out a small script for the children to practise with.  Then the kids had free rein with the phones and practising in groups.  The phone calls ranged from 30 seconds to 5 minutes and many important things were discussed, such as football, homework, travel, and school. 

Budhi, Judith, and Kristina having a chat with some phone savvy students,
Mobile phones are not a problem here with children as they seldom own one so these homemade telephones were a welcome addition to the classroom for some great English practise and a lot of fun!
No, it’s not an iPhone, it’s a cUp phone!
