Christmas time means Christmas break. And even though this break is not so long as for example the summer one, it's hard for some students to face this difficult truth :)
that there will be no classes and absolutely no homework!
What to do then? You ask.
Nothing! I answer.
Anyway, once you feel that you really have too much time on your hands or you would like to incorporate some English into your Christmas celebrations, or you want to continue reading this post and get to know some of my ideas for this festive season ...
Well, I won't disappoint and here they are. You can also check the ones from last year HERE.
FOOD, glorious food
I well remember that a few years ago, when I wasn't a 100% online teacher and I had some students whom I would meet in person, before Christmas we were always baking cookies. The cookies are really easy, healthy and so much fun to do with other people. Here's the recipe. Enjoy and share!
1 cup oatmeal
a handful of nuts and dried fruits (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds or dried cranberries)
1 tablespoon coconut flakes
a pinch of cinnamon
1 tablespoon orange peel
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 large ripe banana
2 tablespoon honey
Mix all the ingredients ----- preheat oven to 200 degrees C ------ bake for 10-12 minutes (until they are slightly brown).
And if you are up to for something more sophisticated than the cookies please do check these ideas
MUSIC, glorious music
GIVING, glorious giving
I am sure you have your own ways of giving and sharing. I do not wish to tamper with that. But, if you find that you want to do yet another thing, I encourage you to prepare a 1kg package (not more-it's very important) which can include one of these:
CDM Upendo Children's Home
P.O. Box 734
NETFLIX, not so glorious netflix
Ok, this post is getting too long now.
Enjoy your time!
Merry Christmas to You ALL!
