Events (Fair)

                In the school educational system, the students are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: good teachers who do well and bad teachers who serve little to no purpose. These are their stories. CHUNG CHUNG!

                Naw, I’m just kidding, Wintermute here bringing you your daily dose of Dumbr. Today we will discuss how to manage a mini fair for your students. Basically each class will be responsible for one separate event. If you have a lot of classrooms at your school you may have to get creative. Each class will take turns going around to each other class and participating in the event that class set up.

Stores: We had two stores, a book store (books were brought in by parents) and a toy store (same deal). We set the classrooms up to look like a store with a fake cash register and everything. We even made fake money for them to pass out and buy stuff.

            Arts a Crafts Shop: A place for the kids to go to make wallets/purses to hold their fake 
            money in.

            Drama: Have the kids pay admittance to a theatrical Drama presented by the students.

Gym: Turn the gym into some kind of game they can play, preferably one they haven’t ever played before. Fairs usually see things like Darts, or Horseshoes, think about stuff along those lines. 

Cooking: I’d say have some kind of cooking class, but save it as a last resort. Make sure it’s cheap and easy.

                Be sure to have your kids get very involved. Have them decorate the class and make banners to post up on the walls advertizing their little soiree. This is a good event that will have them practicing their English as they go up to buy something or during the planning process.

                I have full faith and confidence you will do well. As always ask questions and post oyur comments. Tomorrow we talk about Pajama parties, so bring your favorite bedtime story and a glass of water, we’re sleeping Dumbr style.
