Visit Indonesia 2015!

Because why NOT?

That was what my grade 5 students made last year. A kind of poster after their inspirational teacher *cough* saw a Visit America banner published by travelling agencies. And thaaatt inspirational teacher was thinking, “Hey! I’d like to have this in my class for a change. So one of my students who loves drawing so much , and other creative type can showcase their talents! Besides, it’s gonna suit my lesson plan and my feet could have some rest from always standing straight for a while.” (Yes, we, teachers are all super hero in that kind of sense!) So that inspirational teacher *double cough* decided to make a Visit Indonesia 2015 Poster, mainly because she just arrived from travelling to Banyuwangi and she really wanted her students to know and love amazing hidden places in Indonesia. I know what they did was elementary, Watson. Nevertheless, they are still elementary students. I, however, find their works are good enough. Besides, the main point is: they get to know more amazing places in Indonesia. So instead of spending so much money just to take pictures in front of Sea-lion hybrid statue and purchase 50% off Giordano clothes, next time their families decide to travel during holiday, why not having fun in…well, Sempu Island? So, here’s their result… Act (60) Then, of course, what is result without process? Just like Edison said, “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety nine percent perspiration.”

Act (52)[I don’t know what’s happening here but LOOK! They are drawing maps!] Continue reading

Wall Magazine Gr.6 2013/2014

I always think that school projects, be it in the form of wall magazine, making comic strips, writing a diary or *cough* making blogs *dead-stare to my English Professor* are fun. It’s like students are given free time to express themselves, to convey what they understand about particular subjects or lesson to the Whole Wide World school members.

So, last year during this time, I assigned my grade 6 students to make a wall magazine. They were doing pretty much good. But do you know what I loooooove the most about projects? Teamwork and Fun!

Act (2)[Introducing: Nathan, Anju and Albert]

 And you know who’s The Boss:

Act (3)[Nathan: “Because I’m Fantastic!”]

And the result was 76

Hullo Readers!

So, after a long no-post, I decided days ago to revive this old blog, thanks to Forever Amber here. And being a sanguine, only Heaven knows how long I can stay on track without going “Oh! Hey a butterfly”. I should be typed as ENFP and not an ENTJ. Sorry, fellow ENTJS, I’m such a shame to your pack.

And my first post would be no other than *drumroll*, My top 9th grade student got 7.6 for her National Exam Try-Out!

Hu-Whhhaaaattt!!!???

As if not being consistent as ENTJ is not such a shame, and now there is 7.6 as the highest score for English try-out. So you see, Indonesia – my oh-so-beloved-country, always holds National Exam to err, well, test the standard of education across the country, even so far in the heart of Papua. Yes! Papua, a place where “mengambil air so dekat“. NO. It’s not. Thus, in the fear of not passing the exam, all schools work together with various Educational Institutions such as Primagama, Ganesha Operation and stuff to have Try-Out test. The purpose: to humiliate me. Because I don’t actually see what else. Ha-ha. Not funny, I know. Back to the Try-Out thing, it was purposely made so difficult that when the students actually do National Exams, all of them will surprisingly pass. YAY! Fireworks!

For some background,  Continue reading
