Halloween at a Cambodian International School

My childhood friend Meaghan taught elementary school in Phnom Penh for 3 years. Here’s a peek into her classroom.10676314_10154738753305788_4557158503466191558_n-2The children call her ‘Teacher Meaghan’ and her class is conducted in English. The children also take lessons in Mandarin! And the youngest students take naps… which is absolutely adorable. See for yourself. zzzz

Meaghan saved all the fun projects for the day that I was there. We made Halloween ghosts with cake plates and register tape! They loved it!P1060181

All around the world, kids are curious and love to laugh and play. Below Huy and Srey Leap demonstrate Rock, paper, scissors- Cambodian style. If you win the 1st round, you put a finger on your opponent’s forehead. When you win the 2nd round, you push their head back with your pointer fingers in victory.

Just like when I was little, sometimes there are schoolyard collisions and the teacher asks you to apologize for hurting someone even when you didn’t mean to…

I bought a roll of the Michigan quarter and we did rubbings with crayons.P1060172

I had a lovely time and Meaghan assured me that the kiddos kept asking when ‘Teacher Adrienne’ was coming back to visit. That put a smile on my face.
