Pumpkin carving and Arabic learning

A friend of mine came to my classroom to speak about her life and the country where she worked at. It was interesting to students when she was teaching some Arabic. The way she wrote Arabic phrases on the white board and each of the students’ names, they were truly fascinated.  She walked around the classroom to see if students can write from right to left. I’m glad that students enjoyed this.

For the next class, one student carved out a pumpkin while the others were taking pictures of him carving it. Meanwhile, I was showing, mostly the female students, plastic lace stitching. A few students were so fascinated by it that I let them finish my project. A few were able to follow the steps of the stitch, so I had one of them explain it to their classmates.
