Korean Manners Day

Instead of a field trip this month we had a guest come in to teach the kids Korean manners; namely, how to bow properly and how to drink tea. I wonder if Korean kids drink tea. I didn't have the priviledge of understanding the lesson because I don't speak Korean. But I did see a film that featured a farting cartoon character. Gotta love Korea.

All the kids looked incredibly cute in their traditional Korean hanbok dress. Check it out.

Mindy, Peter, and Brian.

My whole class except for Molly. Notice the drawing of my dogs taped to the wall on the right...

The boys

The girls.

Aren't they lovely?

It might interest you to know that boys kneel on the ground and bend their heads all the way down to the floor, and girls only kneel on one leg and bend their heads down slightly. I think this was all in preparation for asking for money on Lunar New Year.
