Betty Botter

Betty Botter had some butter,            
“But,” she said, “this butter’s bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
it would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter–
that would make my batter better.”

So she bought a bit of butter,
better than her bitter butter,
and she baked it in her batter,
and the batter was not bitter.
So ’twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.

Peter Piper

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

She sells sea shells by the seashore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I’m sure she sells seashore shells.
 그녀는 해안가에서 조개를 판다. 그녀가 딱딱한 것을 파는데 그것이 조개껍데기라는 것이 확실하다. 그래서 그녀가
해안가에서 조개를 팔면, 나는 그 조개들이 해안가의 조개라는 것이 확실하다.

Writing: Hanboks Underwater

This week’s lesson is a creative writing lesson. Students created stories from these beautiful pictures taken from the Hanbok Underwater Fashion Show in Seoul. The Hanboks were by designer Park Sul-Nyeo, during the Underwater Hanbok Fashion Show in Seoul on August 22, 2010. The attraction was held as a part of promotional event for a new department stores’ opening claiming it was the world’s first underwater Hanbok fashion show.

In the 1910’s, Korea was governed by the Japanese government. Most male grown-ups were forced to enroll in the army and many girls became geishas. Some of them accepted their destiny and gave up their lives as Koreans, but many chose to die. Geishas wearing Hanboks, the traditional costume of Korea, decided to jump from the cliff, and this photo shows that tragic scene of the past.
