248/365

I normally tutor Korean kids - help with homework, etc. - A new gig I got through a friend recently. It's great that it's local, not so great it's not many hours.
They wanted me to come during the Winter Break to lead some of the younger kids in theater games and maybe do some type of performance; another way to help them learn the language as well as confidence and diction.
Today was our first day, and other than one child I already knew, everyone else I'd never met before. I was pleasantly surprised at how much energy they all had, and most willing to jump in and try things.
The first game we played is called 'Zip, Zap, Boing' - usually a rather complex game for kids to learn, but these kids picked it up VERY fast. Later, another boy joined in, and I asked Andy to explain it to him quickly in Korean so we could get on with the game.
