Worms, worms, worms!

At BIS I mostly teach social classes, but I also teach novel classes to grades 1, 2, 3 and 4. Every month we study a new book. These classes are really fun because we don't have a set schedule or things that we have to accomplish every month. So, I plan fun activities like crafts, debates and writing activities.
This month the third graders and I are studying "How to Eat Fried Worms." This is a book about a boy named Billy who bets that he can eat 15 worms in 15 days. If he does, he will get $50 from his friends, and will be able to buy a new bicycle he has been wanting. The boys in the story come up with many different ways to eat worms and it's pretty hilarious. The kids LOVE gross things like this and every week so far they have been reading MORE pages than I assigned them to read. (A teachers dream!!)

This week in class we made worm cups, and the kids LOVED it! In a cup you put chocolate ice cream for the mud (usually you use pudding but I couldn't find that in Korea) then add crushed up oreos for the dirt
 and finally add gummy worms. Easy!
Here are some pictures from our fun day in novel class:

Lisa's (front, right) face in this one is hilarious. She was unsure about eating the treat and was acting like it was REAL worms! Perfect!

Kay didn't want to eat it either. But, once she did she loved it!
