Jambo means hello in Swahili. The students in my class learned some common phrases today in Swahili like hello, good - bye, thank you, you're welcome and excuse me. Tomorrow we'll learn good job - an ever important phrase to show good game manners on field day (this Friday!!). I'll post pictures of our completed flag's progress as it's been collaged. It's really coming along. And I'll soon share my lesson for learning the Swahili words for body parts...head, shoulders, knees, and toes anyone? Well, actually the Swahili word for toes is really long, so I'm changing the song to heads, shoulders, knees, and feet...it doesn't have quite the same ring, but at least we're learning words! Kwa heri (good-bye) for now!
