Today an activity in one of my classes evolved into something unplanned that I wanted to share here.
Most of my students are college (university) age and professionals. I have a three hour Saturday class of three girls. The youngest is ten years old, and the other two are about thirteen. Today there was an activity in their English book (Your Space 2 published by Cambridge University Press) that called for the writing of a short rap song using the words "have to." One of the girls missed out on this, unfortunately, since she was absent.
While the girls were writing their rap together it came into my mind that they should film it on their phones. They both have phones. In fact, the ten year old is the owner of an iPhone. Before I could express my brainwave Edanaz, who is ten, asked if they could have time to rehearse their rap and then film it. I eagerly and totally agreed.
We tried to film the rap inside the classroom, but the video came out too dark, so the girls gave me their phones and I filmed the rap just outside on the balcony. Here's the final result with my two cute students. :)
