Teaching Moments in Fujian

On Tuesday, May 20th the Jinjiang, Fujian SWI moved into its brand new orphanage. A part of the move included our Believe In Me students, teachers and learning materials into brand new classrooms. With Children’s Day coming soon, the teachers decided to celebrate with something these children had never experienced before, a cake! Not only had the students not had cake before, they also did not know about the fruits that decorated the top of the cake.

Now this celebration also had a learning opportunity that could occur.

First the teachers read to the children about fruit.

Next they colored pictures of fruit.

Last they had the chance to taste the fruit, on top of a beautiful cake! Yum!!
