Women's Day Celebration
I was waiting for everyone to arrive when they came in with a bouquet of flowers for me. It was SO sweet. I felt guilty that I hadn't planned anything for them. We started the lesson as usual, and about 30-40 minutes in they started acting weird. I was having them work on an activity that required partner work, but then all of a sudden they were all talking to each other in Russian. I heard a few words like "cafe," "tea," and "she." Then they asked if they could take their break (our class is 2.5 hours long). I said sure because I didn't care. They kept talking then we went back to the lesson but they all seemed so restless. Then at about 8:30 they told me they had a surprise. They whipped out a cake and tea and we had a celebration for all the women in the class.
