One day I have to teach the children animal's name in mandarin. I have animal shapes that made of EVA material (sponge-like). But it's too small for children to look at from distance. So I planned to bring along my 'only one' light torch from home, the big one, coz it needs 5 'big' batteries to turn on. I've got it from my parents, wow it's quite old. But it's still in good condition to show it to the children. FYI : It can light up so far, the light distance's about 30 meters. When I was starting to teach, suddenly I turn off all lights in the classroom. They seem so surprised. They are wondering in the dark what am I doing.........................
I am drawing!!!!!!...... on the whiteboard using my marker. It's really need a very hi-l skill to draw in the dark, not even a professor can do that.........:D. But a kindergarten teacher can do that. hooooraayy............
Then I start to turn on the torch, directing to the whiteboard. Now everybody can see my drawing, it's a jungle.
Well please don't expect it too much :) . There are four trees, bushes and grass. Then I begin to play with my animal shape in the torch light. The children are so excited coz my animal becomes alife when I play it, the monkey is jumping to the tress, and I ask one of them assist me to play the lion shape too as it's walking and hiding in bushes. As we know that we used to play shadow without any background, so in this condition I add the hand-drawing jungle background. It's quite simple but it's very effective to chill up the children.
The picture that I took, it's not so clear. Coz no flash's allowed in my little shadow playing :). Thanks torch !!
