Shopping Day

Today is SHOPPING DAY at my school.. The foyer has has been turned into a shopping centre with big signs, products laid out on tables, price lists, balloons galore... The Mums (or Mommies, as they're called here) are coming soon and I have to teach them shopkeeper's expressions in English, then the children will spend the morning 'shopping' in English with play money. Good god.

Update: we have a photographer. I've posed in front of my grocery store, holding yellow melons. Can't figure out if the Mums think I'm ok. They all approached m an said, basically, please give special attention to Mimi/Aron/kidA. Mums all brought aprons and headscarves, and listened very carefully when I said 'zucchini' and 'bracelet'.
