What's a partisanas

So it looks like nobody else is going to post anything, cause they are goofballs. So i'll put up another post which might appeal to the teachers out there.

So i'm teaching this pamoka about partisanai. With the older kids me and vytenis did 2 pamokas, first one about partisanai, and then they broke up into teams and went out and played bombardment in the woods for a pamoka, trying to reinact when the partisanai took the radio tower in kaunas, so pasaku namelis was the radio tower and the partisanai tried to free it, while the sovietai tried to kill the partisanai. So for some reason i had to do a pamoka with 7tas by myself. So with them it's just 1 pamoka, half and half, because they don't have the attention span for more. So i start talking about partisanai, both in english and lithaunian because many of them don't understand lithuanian that well. Go through the very basics because most of them don't know anything. Then start talking about an underground press, and they start getting really excited about it, and when i say we are going to reinact the taking of kaunas many of them say they want to be workers for the underground press. So i explain half of them will be partisanai and half will be rusia.

And one of the girls raises up her hand and says. "What's a partisanas?"

what? we just talked about the partisanai for 20 minutes. what do you say to that. there may have been kids in other nameliai that didn't really pay attention, but they didn't ask questions at the end either. It was as if she was paying attention, and was interested, but somehow missed the whole point of everything we were talking about.

They didn't enjoy the game either, several of them started crying for various reasons. I think the least fun pamoka i've had at neringa in 4 years. especially odd because all the other nameliai that we did it with loved it.

Side note, when we did it with the older kids, me and vytenis played too, and as recall when he was a partisanas, and i was a rusas, he was trying to run into pasaku to free it, and i nailed him right in the head.

well i doubt anyone will go back to this post to read it now, but in case someone does, it was roughly just before the germans invaded lithuania. I don't remember the details, possibly after the germans started invading lithuania, or possibly just before, but the result was the lithuania at least for a short time was able to set up a provisional government under the germans, because they had declared their independence before the germans took over, so the germans could not just treat lithuania as conquered territory. If you want to know more, you should read lietuva 700 years, which is where we got the information
