很多人抱怨国内中小学学生生活单调乏味,每日活动囿于三点一线,一些学生甚至以笼子里的鸟儿自比。此时此刻,您是不是很想知道远在大洋彼岸的美国学生是如何度过中小学时光的?从本周开始,小留学生陈韵正为我们开辟一个专栏,根据她的亲身经历给我们讲述美国中小学学生的生活。

学校一日

初到美国密苏里大学附近的LEE小学就读五年级,陈韵正对眼前的一切感到新奇不已。学校没有气派的校门,也没有围墙,只见一座两层的红砖建筑物上刻着“Lee Elementary School”。古老的石头拱门上标明的“1904”表明这是一所百年老校。在这所有着悠久历史的学校里,陈韵正开始了她第一天的留学生活。

It was a very different school from those in China. You're not met by imposing doors and concrete walls, and the buildings were inviting. On the front of the main building was inscribed “Lee Elementary School, 1904.” Wow! I knew it was an old school. Surrounding the main building were five trailers. One of them was my classroom, 5T. The “T” stood for Mrs. Toalson, my 5th grade teacher.

Mrs. Toalson showed me to my seat. A girl sitting at my table greeted me. Her name was Regina, and she was a blonde girl from Ukraine. Her eyes were like diamonds, and we had met at a party two days before.

During my first morning, we had math class, PE and science. We didn’t even have a break! I wondered why? Mrs. Toalson said to us: “Guys, line up for the bathroom break please!” All the kids stood up and went outside.

I didn’t know what “bathroom break” meant. Was it break time? Lunch time? I was confused. Nevertheless, we followed Mrs. Toalson to the main building. We sat in the hallway across from the bathroom. In Chinese, “bathroom” means the WC, and a “break” means having a rest! Gosh, I thought that was weird and why did we have to go to the bathroom together?

“Mary and Regina, you may go.” When we heard Mrs. Toalson, we went into the bathroom. The bathroom was clean, and it smelled like perfume. I asked Regina what if someone wanted to go to the bathroom during class time. She told me that there was a special pass called a “bathroom pass.” All you had to do was raise your hand with the pass to let Mrs. Toalson know you need to go to the bathroom. Then you would be permitted to go.

At 3:30pm, school ended for the day. Students put their textbooks in their cabinets and lined up in front of the change room, where they collected their backpacks and coats. As they walked out of the door, each student said “Good bye” and gave Mrs. Toalson a high five.

“Did you have a good day today?” Mrs. Toalson asked me as she hugged me goodbye.

“Sure!” I nodded.
