Campers were full of energy on the last day of camp. Each camper took a racket from Ms. Jin, the teacher, and warmed up before play. Since it was the last time the teacher would be with the students, Ms. Jin organized a tournament for the campers to participate in. It was a culmination of all the hard work every camper had put in this week. From serving to learning the right way to hit the shuttle, and finally working as a team, the campers truly showed the teacher that they had learned a lot from her class. After the first game in which Ms. Jin’s team with Kitty and Jason won, Victor and Ze Hao stepped up their game to defeat them in the second hard-fought game. The class unfortunately had to end, so the teacher surprised her students with a game of dodgeball.
Campers of all three Chinese classes flooded into Chinese Basic’s classroom. They sat down by class and started chatting about the performance. You could see that they were a bit nervous but quite prepared for it. In the classroom, the three classes with three teachers worked together to finalize their live performance later tonight. Each student re-read their poems to their teachers. Their poems were not only beautifully copied down but also eloquently recited. Furthermore, the class practiced the lyrics of the TFBoys song they had prepared. Some campers were so excited that they decided to jump into the middle of the class to dance. Ms. Zhao then played some music in the class for the campers to dance to. The class was full of zest to show their parents what they had been able to learn in just a couple days.
RPG Game Maker Workshop TGW
Class today was laid back since all of the campers had been so efficient in the work earlier this week. Because of this, Kathleen allowed the campers to play online RPG games for the duration of class. Additionally, they shared their games with each other and challenged each other to beat them. The games were quite complicated with interesting stories to them. The gameplay, moreover as noted by many students, was actually quite fluid. Victor’s game about a young adventurer finding his way through a new mysterious world was riveting and many campers found themselves spending quite a bit of time trying to complete it. In the end of it all, Victor told his fellow friends that his game was actually unbeatable. This comment was followed by lots of laughter. Class ended with goodbyes and beaming faces most likely thinking about all the happy memories of the past three weeks.
