A poem: My ideal classroom by Aaron Lee
I have a simple dream about my ideal classroom
For I wish I have only 11 pupils in a class
11 pupils enough to build a football team
Easy to look after, easy to facilitate, easy to manage
I talk, and they must keep quiet and listen.
While I am idle, I want them to express their ideas freely
I dream of interactive classroom, but not as noisy as night market
For the environment in tranquility, I believe they can learn better
Once in a while, I play a song to entertain my pupils
Stories and tales are not to be missed.
The class I dream of is under a big tree in the beautiful garden
You can hear birds are chirping and small stream running through
For 11 of them, they are my friends
So just call my name, and I will be there to guide you
They complain of exhausted, I will motivate and encourage them
Pupils neither quit nor give up in learning
I believe they have their own potential and thus succeed in life
They complain tired again? Let’s have fun!
Together we pluck fruits and eat together
Go fishing, bird-watching, and playing chess
Breathing a fresh air in the beautiful garden, what a blissful life!
For my class is not out-of-date
I dream each of them will have a mini laptop
as small as exercise book with ‘powermyx’ connection, not streamyx.
With super-duper speed connection, I want to create a blog for my class
Free topic and free submission, let your creativity soar high like an eagle.
We share; we connect, and learn together!
No punishment, but loving tender care
For this ideal classroom, it can happen!
Only I go and take a nap now.
