Wai Kru – Thank You!

The tradition of celebrating Wai Kru (Teaher Respect) has been a modernized event since 1941 which was influenced by the spread of Brahmanism from India. Each year the students take time to show respect to their teachers by giving flower arrangements, singing traditional Thai songs and dance performances, all of which have special meaning.  I am grateful to teach children in Thailand and experiences like Wai Kru are quite  humbling regardless of the amount of years that have accumulated living here.  I tell the students from time to time that learning their subject material is only part of their learning cycle.  This celebration is more than just being a subject teacher, but a reminder that these children depend on the guidance of adults who spend time with them each day and in most cases for many years.  Thank you!

Homework Booklets will be issued in 4 week increments.  The first four weeks of school homework mainly covered previous concepts learned in grade 5.  The homework booklet covering week 5-8 will be issued 6 June 2016.  There will be copious notes written by each subject teacher in a rectangle at the bottom of the page.  The rectangle will be clearly labeled “comments”.

Hello Students,

Welcome to EP6 Red Homeroom!  I am excited about getting the chance to meet each of you this year and being your teacher!  We are going to discover a lot of things about English and refine the parts of English you may have already learned. You may visit the classroom blog to find out information about upcoming events, assignments, projects, birthdays, holidays and other random stuff for our class.

I hope you have lots of fun on your new journey!

Sincerely,

Mr. Dale and Mrs. Benny
