Cambodian 'Boy/Girl' Germs!

I have a new part-time teaching position to supplement paying the bills while we get our English Centre up and running.

The kids are from both Grade 1 and 2. However, the Grade 2 children will not mix with the opposite sex.
'Ooooooew! Teacher', one girl said when I instructed her to ask a boy a question.

The Girls:
Quiet, heads down, concentrating on their work.
And, all on one side of the classroom.

The Boys:
Noisey, heads everywhere, avoiding their work.
And, on the other side of the room.

The Cambodian Assistant Teacher tries her best to keep the boys under control. She does a great job.

I've now introduced colour teams - both girls and boys - in the hope of getting some healthy cooperation.

On Monday we start working in these groups.
There will be a lot of 'Oooooooew teacher!'
