Rehearsals for our World Literacy Day celebrations started today and as promised here are the details to watching live on Friday. Today we went back over some materials we learned last year and I also began teaching the kids a little welcome song I wrote in both their native language Hiligaynon and the national language Tagalog. We had a lot of fun with that today.
The children will be performing live for you as well as talking a little about their lives and what they enjoy doing. We have a few little surprises too that we hope you will enjoy. I don’t think they completely grasp the fact that people from other countries will be watching but they are excited that they will be able to watch the whole thing again themselves.
Don’t forget that accomplished children’s author and poet Dr June Perkins will be joining us via Skype to inspire the children with poems and stories from her latest book Magic Fish Dreaming.
You can watch the event right here on this page or click through to YouTube to engage in the live chat feature. I’ll do my best to respond to any messages. I may also stream it through to Facebook but it depends on who I can get to hold the cameras!
So this is my very first attempt at livestreaming and I hope you will forgive any teething problems. Anyone who knows me (yes friends I am still super OCD) will realise the event is being mega rehearsed, will start exactly on time and (being wet season) I have a backup plan. I’m going to try to squeeze 50+ kids into the small room we live in if it dares to rain.
