Random thoughts: unexpected conversation during relief lesson

Was tasked to relief a P2 class, I know with my temperament, it is not easy to teach lower primary, but we'll, it's still better than doing admin.

The instructions left by the teacher is to teach vocab, so I just try my nonsensical way for them to remember the word 送

I ask, what word did u see? They said 天,I say the 2 dots are eyes in the sky, and it is watching u, if u are good, just like santa, it will send a gift, hence it is 送。

They are amused, lower primary pupils are easily amused by difficult to manage to be quiet and pay attention. Some ask, what about the left side.

Hmm... As I didn't prepare for my lesson, I just very randomly ask, what does the left side look like to u?

I buy time to ransack my brain for ideas. In the end, i say part of the left side look like a thunder bolt isn't it? So, if u are not good, but happen to be very very bad, 老天劈你。They laughed. I ask them to close their eyes and see if they can remember how to write the word, they could remember the meaning, the pronounication and strokes. Mission accomplished, and I ask them to do their writing exercises.

A boy came up to me and ask me, "good people go heaven and bad people go hell right" I say hmmm...

Then he continued, "because there is Jesus right"

I recognize the boy, he was the one at the student care center giving hell to all sorts of teachers. Just last week the office actually called me to bring him down to see the principal. I was amused and ask "why need me" they told me he was difficult and had refused to move when the office staff went to pick him

I went, he was not austic, he just had issues. He crawled under the table and was screaming and crying. With the school counselor, we play good cop bad cop and mange to get him down in 5 min (no prize for guessing who is the bad cop)

Back to the class, I find him quite obedient in my class, and he actually followed my instructions during my teaching to raise their hands and wait for.me to call on them if they wish to speak. So I ask him "where is heaven and where is hell"

He pointed to the sky and say heaven is up there and point to the ground and say hell is below.

I put my hand over his shoulder and bring him back to his seat and say "heaven and hell are in your heart, when u are happy, u feel like you are in heaven and when u are unhappy, u feel like u are in hell, isn't it"

He was kind of taken aback, and after some thinking, nodded his head.

I ask, "are u happy with what happen at the student center last week?" He shook his head and suddenly very loudly exclaimed "Hey! U remembered me"

It was my turn to be amused

What an unforgettable experience for something not planned
