7th Grade!

After getting to know more about the school and each individual class, I decided to stick with class 7B. The first time we went into that room I knew that these were the kids that I wanted to spend the next six weeks with. Within the first part of our stay I have already been able to learn so much from these kids. This past week at school has been very busy with preparation for the holiday this weekend. The 26 of Jan is is their Republic Day and a very important time for them. On this day each class will do a presentation (drama, song, dance, etc.) so there is a lot to get ready. My class is doing a dance with dumbbells and then a short drama which they have been working hard to perfect. Along with helping the 7th standard students prepare, I have also been able to get some sneak peeks of other classes, and I am so excited to see how it all comes together. Earlier in the week when we had some free time a couple of girl from my class took me to their dance practice. while rehearsing for this weekend they took some time to stop and teach me part of it. Being able to see some of their culture through dancing was super awesome. Tomorrow at school is the final day before the holiday, so we will be busy pulling all of the last minute details together and perfecting the dance. Some of the girls in my class are also planning to do mehndi on their hands and feet, as it is a tradition to do before holidays.
