The kids are back in town! Lots of them… and it's wonderful!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week with the teachers, but it is a delight to hear the sounds of children’s voices all over the campus, and to see their sweet smiles and faces!
Morning devotions are ALWAYS a highlight of the day! The sound of children’s voices raised in worship flowed out of every window all over the campus… from the “itty bitties” to Standard 7! It was wonderful… none of us could think of a better way to start our day!
Then it was down to Math! At the end of last week, we all (American and Tanzanian teachers alike) agreed that we needed to spend this week teaching the children all the things the teachers had learned last week. Godfrey gave the teachers the freedom to set their prescribed math lessons aside for this week. Today’s topic was Place Value… tomorrow is addition, then subtraction, multiplication, and division. We’re working on the cycle of memorization AND meaning AND memorization AND meaning… so on! Tanzanian teaching has been significantly based on memorization; bringing meaning and interactive methods of learning should improve understanding for today… and for higher levels of math! We each had time to watch and team-teach with the Tanzanian teachers as they introduced these concepts to the children. There were many “ah ha!” moments… and laughter and learning… it was delightful! Last week we were thankful for the dedicated time with the teachers. This week we are SO THANKFUL for the time to team-teach with them! We think this extra time will bring the kind of long-lasting changes that we’ve been working toward for many years. BWANA ASIFIWE!!!!! (The praise belongs to the Lord!) And in Tanzania, when someone says this you must reply, “AMEN!” Today we say AMEN wholeheartedly!
As if morning devotions, true understanding, and student and teacher excitement in the process of learning weren’t enough, here are a few other highlights of the day:
On our walk back home, Kili peeked over the clouds. It was a great day! We can hardly wait to see what tomorrow holds. THANK YOU for sending, supporting, and praying! Keep it up… it’s making all the difference in the world! Mungu aku bariki!
