d0114908_19125330.jpgL.A.の時間は昨日と同じようにクリスマスのビデオを観ました。トドラーさんも飽きずに静かに見て、面白い場面ではみんな大きな声で笑って反応していました。

その後、"Gingerbread Man House"つくり。昨日つくった家に今日はチョコやマシュマロ、ジェリービーンズなどのお菓子をくっつけてデコレーションしました。

レベッカ先生が、デコレーションするお菓子だから食べないように、と話しましたが、おいしそうで中には食べてしまった子も・・・!?

でもみんなキレイにデコレーションして仕上げました。ステキなHouseが完成!!

今週は毎日クリスマス制作に取り組んできました。今日は最後の制作物、"Gingerbread Man House"が出来上がり、もうすっかりクリスマス気分の一日でした。

そして、今日は2学期最終日です。

お道具箱やお着替え袋、クリスマスの制作物などたくさんの荷物を持ち帰ります。帰りの時間は、冬休みに向けて自分の身の回りの荷物を整理しました。

明日からいよいよ冬休み!ケガや病気のないよう新年を迎え、また3学期元気な顔を見せてほしいと思います。

新学期、クリスマスやお正月など楽しかった話をみんなから聞くのを楽しみにしています!

では、良いお年を!!

d0114908_19144725.jpgToday was a quiet day. A lot of children were out sick today, so we had a small group.

At Circle Time, Rebecca played a fun Christmas vocabulary game with all the kids, and Jeana taught the kids a Christmas rhyme:
"Santa Clause is Big and Fat.
He wears black boots and a big red hat.
His nose if red just like a rose.
And he "ho, ho, ho's" (laughs) from his head to his toes. "

Then they sang and danced to "Rock-a-bye Bear" and other favorite songs. They were so cute singing the Bear song. You can see they really enjoy this song.

We had a special snack of brownies (fresh from the oven) and ice cream for K.K.'s birthday.

After snack we made beautiful tree top angels. The kids enjoyed decorating their angels with colorful sequins and sparkles. I think the angels will look beautiful on your Christmas trees for years to come.

After lunch, the kids did their U worksheets and took turns trying on beautiful Korean fashions that B.J.'s mommy lent us. They enjoyed wearing the beautiful colorful traditional dress of Korea.

The kids did a great job today sharing the two bouncing balls. The older kids love to dripple the ball, and the little ones are trying so hard to copy them.

The kids are sharing and playing together very well these days. I am so proud of them!

d0114908_19182587.jpgToday we put our U vocabulary in to sentences that the children had to repeat back to the teacher.

Then we played the "slap" game with the christmas vocabulary flashcards.

We sung "Where is Thumpkin" and "5 little ducks". The students were very good today and listened well.

At snack time we had yummy, yummy gingerbread cookies. For many of the students it was their first time to try a gingerbread cookie.

After snack all the students made a stuffed paper gingerbread man. We used a glyph to determine what colour eyes, mouth, buttons etc. our gingerbread men would have.

Blue eyes if you are a boy, pink if your a girl. When we were finished we threaded wool through the two pieces of the gingerbread man and stuffed him with cotton. We added some cinnamon to the stuffing to make him smell authentic.

Before lunch we broke in to Red and Yellow teams and had a snowball fight. The end result being a tie with 3 left on each team.

After lunch we made birthday cards for K.K.'s party tomorrow. We finished the day with "Frosty the Snowman".

d0114908_1919039.jpgThis week is review week and we reviewed "T" vocabulary and also some winter vocabulary, for example, Icicle, Ice, Snow, Blizzard and Avalanche.

We then had a story which the kids absolutely love and they kept asking me to read it one more time, its called "Yo! Yes?" by Chris Raschka. This book won a major prize because it is so interactive and the kids really feel involved in reading the book.

Next it was Song time and we played some new songs which everyone really enjoyed, the first was " I'm so happy" and " Mary had a little Lamb".

In Craft time everyone made a Christmas Wreath with Soft Clay and decorated with coloured Pasta shapes and Beads.

After 1pm we played the Dice and Number game. The Numbers one to seven are placed in a circle. There is a "Wolf" in the middle of the floor and he or she has to roll the dice and then the kids have to run to the number without getting caught by the wolf, for if they are caught they will become the wolf. The kids had so much fun with this game.

At 1.55pm- We showed the book called the "Twelve days of Christmas" while playing the Song of the same title.

d0114908_1924540.jpg今日は Twinkle Star Concert 。

モーニングルーティンでは、Show&Tell 。 ”What do you want for Christmas?" と先生に尋ねられ、先日書いたサンタクロースへの手紙をみんなに見せながら、S.S.ちゃん、R.I.くん、Y.S.くんなど数人のお友達が発表してくれました。

スナックは mincemeat pie 。みんなおいしそうに食べていましたね。

いよいよコンサート。トドラーさんは、トナカイのお面をつけ、歌 "Here come the Reindeer" 、そして "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" 2曲に合わせて踊りました。

ロンパーさんは、劇 "Gingerbread Man"、ロンパー&キンダーさんは、劇 "The Little Red Hen" を発表。

ちょっと恥ずかしくなってしまったお友達、お母さん方やお友達の前でも大きな声で発表できたお友達・・・・みんな頑張りました!!

続いて、全員で歌 "Jingle Bells"、"Rudolph the Red Nosed Rendeer"、"Clap Your Hands for Santa Claus" に合わせて、楽しくベルを鳴らしながら歌い、踊りました。

その後、ゲーム"Snow ball渡し"、"Musical Chairs"、そして "Pinata割り" をしました。

d0114908_19242796.jpgジュリアン先生が Pinata はメキシコの子どものパーティーで遊ぶもの、だと教えてくれ、順番に棒を持って Pinata 割りに挑戦しました。

なかなか割れず、みんな真剣な表情で必死に棒で叩きます。ついに割れると中からキャンディーが飛び出してきて、子ども達は大喜びでしたね。

最後は親子全員で円になり、"We Wish You a Merry Christmas" を歌い、Good Bye!!

今日は一足早いクリスマスを楽しんだ一日でした。

Happy Christmas!!

d0114908_2336478.jpgDuring circle time we practiced our Christmas vocabulary and read the story of the month 'The Gingerbread Man'.

The children are really good at following along with the story. We then practiced our Christmas songs.

After snack time we read and acted out our plays. It is really coming along well.

Before lunch we wrote letters to Santa Clause and drew pictures of what we asked him for.

Before goodbye time we did long jump in P.E. The students lined up and jumped as far as they could on to the soft mat.

Some of them jumped more than 100cm. Wow!

d0114908_23472935.jpgToday in the Morning Routine we studied "U" vocabulary and also the Weather. S.S. did an excellent job of presenting the weather report.

Also we had a story called "Frosty the Snowman" which we read while playing the song which they seemed really intrigued about.

Later on we practiced the performances for the Christmas Concert, The Toddlers did two songs and the Rompers and Kinders performed their plays called "The Little Red Hen" and also "The Gingerbread Man". For their first rehearsal they did pretty well.

After Lunch everyone made a "Gingerbread Man" booklet and glued a felt Gingerbread man onto the front of the booklet. At 1.50pm we had a story called "Little Mouse Meets Santa" by Claire Schumacher.

On a funnier note, K.F. asked me after cleaning up the Blocks "Is K a very,very,very,very good boy?" and I replied "Yes, K is a very,very,very,very good boy!

d0114908_22173277.jpg風邪や胃腸炎が流行ってきました。

今日はティム先生、レベッカ先生と6人のお友達が欠席。スクールは人数が少なく12人の出席で、いつもよりのんびり&穏やかな雰囲気でした。

モーニングルーティンでは、絵本 "Spot's First Christmas" と紙芝居 "The Gingerbread Man" を見ました。

人数が少ないせいなのか?みんなとても静かに集中しながら、ジュリアン先生のお話を聞くことが出来ました。

その後は全員で来週のコンサートの歌の練習。一列に並び、"Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" などクリスマスソングに合わせて踊りました。

トドラーのY.K.ちゃん、A.M.ちゃん、M.S.ちゃんも、先生の真似をしながらかわいらしく体を動かし、楽しんでいました。

今日はお友達が少なくてちょっぴり寂しい一日でした。

でも、相変わらずお部屋の中は子どもたちの元気な声が響き渡っていました。

来週は "福祉の杜" 訪問、と "トゥインクルスターコンサート" があります。そして2学期もあと2週間・・・。みんな早く回復して元気にスクールに登園してほしいと思います。

d0114908_22152388.jpgIn morning circle we did some T vocabulary and put them in to sentences.

We made a list and asked some of the students to tell us what they would like for Christmas.

“For Christmas I want a…..” We then read the story book version of the ’12 day of Christmas’ and after that we sang the song.

After snack time we practiced for our Christmas plays. We did a lot better today and the students are understanding their rolls more.

We made our December calendar page. We cut out Christmas trees and snow flakes. Then decorated them with the glitter glue.

After Lunch we practiced our Christmas songs and drew our pictures for our advent calendar.

To finish the day we read the story ‘Little mouse meets Santa’.
