Hall of Fame


Here I am. Sekejap ada sekejap tadeee..I'm quite stress,inside out. Could not really concentrate in classes due to other workloads. Alhamdulillah, the Form 3s done with their English yesterday. I see them smiling and look confident. That could be a good sign! We did our part,now lets hope for the best...

Yesterday, I also witnessed the 'magic of words'. After a writing session with the fifth formers, I decided to proceed the class with a vocabulary exercise. I planned to give them a song lyric (with blanks).Their job is to listen to the song and fill in the blanks with the correct words. So here is the song's lyric.

Yeah, You could be the greatest
You can be the best
You can be the king kong banging on your chest

You could beat the world
You could beat the war
You could talk to God, go banging on his door

You can throw your hands up
You can beat the clock
You can move a mountain
You can break rocks
You can be a master
Don't wait for luck
Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself

Standing in the hall of fame                                  
And the world's gonna know your name
Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world's gonna know your name
And you'll be on the walls of the hall of fame

You could go the distance
You could run the mile
You could walk straight through hell with a smile

You could be the hero
You could get the gold
Breaking all the records they thought never could be broke

Do it for your people
Do it for your pride
Never gonna know if you never even try

Do it for your country
Do it for your name
Cause there's gonna be a day


Be a champion (4x)
On the walls of the hall of fame

Be studentsbe teachers
Be politicians, be preachers

Be believers, be leaders
Be astronauts, be champions, be true seekers

Be studentsbe teachers
Be politicians, be preachers

Be believers, be leaders
Be astronauts, be champions

Then,I've explained to them,line-by-line just like the way I'm teaching poem. I interpret the lyric from a students point of view. While I'm explaining, I get too emotional and start to relate the whole lyrics with sacrifices made by the parents and teachers. 

I mentioned something like this 'You can't actually pay your parent with money, it won't be enough. They're not hungry for your money, their hungry to see you succeed'. Some of them shred into tears and me too (almost)..

I don't actually expect that kind of reaction from them.After the class they look motivated and lets hope the spirit will last until the end of the year.I'm expecting something 'big' from this year SPM candidates. This song tells us, Anything is Possible. Now, lets listen to the song and appreciate the lyric.

P/s: Esok pi padang besaq woi,cari jersi.
