The highlight of the day was introducing the game BINGO to the 7th graders. They had never heard of the game so it took awhile for them to catch on. As soon as they would get one space, they were yelling BINGO. I explained that they had to get an entire row before you could yell BINGO. I bought OBAMA biscuits for the prizes. These are very popular here. Red, white and blue packaging with Obama's picture on the front. The biscuits are not tasty to me but the students love them. The bell rang for lunch and the students wanted to keep playing. Now, that is what I call a success!!
At tutoring, some of my 7th graders came with their novels. I was so pleased. We sat out under a large acacia tree and read Pippi Longstocking among others.
Then, we were off to the Cedi Bead Factory. Mr. Cedi took us for a tour and explained how the beads are made. Each bead is made by hand from recycled glass. It is a method that has been handed down for generations. Factory does not really explain the procedures which are very time consuming and intricate. Of course, we all bought many bracelets, necklaces, etc. They are really unique.
