Today was St. Patrick's day and we talked about St. Patrick's day and what they do on this day in Ireland to celebrate it.

We then had a puppet show and showed them a shamrock leaf and explained to them that if you find a four leafed shamrock, you will find a pot of gold. The kids were very curious about this and laughed a lot.

We then sang the "Rainbow song" and after this had a shamrock hunt.

Next we had a snack and after this we went outside into the warm sun and played jump rope and kicked a soccer ball around the yard.

We then came inside and played musical chairs and hide and seek with the kids which they thoroughly enjoyed.

After lunch some of the kids made some nice green bracelets or watches to symbolise St. Patrick's day.

Hinamatsuri: March 3, 2008

ティム先生より

d0114908_9571335.jpgToday is Hinamatsuri day and in the morning circle we asked questions like "What day is it today?", "What do they eat and drink on this day?" and "How do the girls dress?".

After this we moved onto the tea ceremony and the kids sang the Hinamatsuri song and then Mrs. Miura and her two assistants helped to make some delicious tea.

Julian also dressed in his ceremonial gown and helped serve the tea.

Everyone that was involved with the ceremony enjoyed it immensely.

Firstly we ate some very sweet candy from Kyoto and then drank the tea which is a little bitter. The sweetness of the candy made it almost impossible to notice the bitterness of the tea and then after this we ate another piece of candy to counteract the bitterness again.

I am sure everyone felt refreshed and reinvigorated after drinking the Green tea.

After lunch we made a Hinamatsuri calendar for the month of March and the Kinders and Rompers did a great job of assembling the different pieces of the dolls and sticking them onto the paper.

This morning in the morning circle we started with attendance and the kids had to raise their hands and say "Yes" when the teacher called their names.

Next was a guessing game that the kids had to guess which animal puppet was under the puppet stage. Hints were given and then the teacher would slowly reveal the animal if they could not guess the animal.

In song time the kids listened to a new "ABC" song which they thoroughly enjoyed.

In Romper time the kids did a shapes worksheet. They did an excellent job of listening to the teachers instructions and A.Su. was very vocal in this class and was answering many questions from the teacher correctly.

It was pleasing to hear A.Su. contribute more to the morning circle as well because she has a good grasp of English vocabulary.

After this the kids enjoyed a ball balancing game and then some soccer with the teachers.

Then it was lunchtime and after lunch the some of the kids practiced with handbells for the concert.

Tulip craft: February 18, 2008

ティム先生より

d0114908_22111690.jpgIn the morning circle today the kids studied shapes and we asked them questions like "What shape is this?" and then the teacher drew the shape on the board and continued to draw inside the shape and we then asked the kids "What is this?" and they had to answer "It's a cookie".

After this the children listened to a story called "The Tooth Book" by Dr. Seuss which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

In Toddler time A.S. and S.S. were chosen to be the song leaders and did a great job in showing the little kids the actions to the songs.

Then in craft time the Toddlers and the Rompers started their Tulip craft.

They blew on blobs of paint with a straw to create a beautiful pattern on their paper.

After lunch the kids either practiced the Sakura song on the handbells or played with the stilts or played hopscotch before going home.

Setsubun!!: February 4, 2008

ティム先生より

d0114908_1225277.jpgIn the morning we finished doing our Oni crafts making a Oni hat with a face on it and then making a basket to hold the beans.

The anticipation was rising while we waited for the return of the Oni's.

Before their imminent return the children listened to a story read by Yuko called "Oni wa soto!" which to my knowledge translates to "Ogre go away!" in English.

After recieving their beans which they use to throw at the Oni's the children sat down and Julian read them a story.

It was during this story that the Oni's burst into the room and the children sat there stunned for a minute, then they realized what they had to do and started throwing beans at the Oni's to try and make them go away!

Some kids were a little shocked and started to cry but some of them were very brave and threw their beans at the Oni's seemingly with little fear of them.

Some of them ran into the foyer to see if they could capture a glimpse of who was wearing the Oni costumes once they had departed!

After lunch we had a less scary activity which was making a February calendar with a Valentines theme and soon it was the end of an eventful morning.

d0114908_12271430.jpgThis morning in the morning routine we studied "Y" vocabulary like Yard,Yan,Yarn,Yell,Yo-Yo and then we studied some food vocabulary by giving the kids hints and they had to guess the name of the food.

After this we had a "Y" story called "Yummy Yucky" and asked them questions like "What flavour could a red soup be?" to really test their knowledge.

In Romper time the kids had to do a matching exercise worksheet. They had to match the parent animal to its baby, for example they had to match a Horse to a Foal.

The Toddlers played a game which was to put all of the same coloured balls into a basket. They had a lot of fun and attempted to put all of the colours into the one basket which they finally achieved.

Just before lunch we played balloon volleyball which was lots of fun!

After lunch we made birthday cards for R.I. and then just before hometime we read a story called "Where can Bunny paint?"

d0114908_1764646.jpgIn the morning routine we studied "X" vocabulary and then we had a story called "I'll be a Firefighter" which then led to the next activity which was learning about occupation vocabulary, for example, Nurse, Singer, Doctor, Model ...Etc.. .

I then asked the question "What do you want to be when you are older?" and they had to reply "I want to be a _______". Most of the students wanted to be Singers!

Later in Japanese time Yuko read a story called "Niwatori Naze Naze Asa Nakuno?" which they enjoyed immensely.

After this the students attempted to do an obstacle course. A.S. really excelled at this as she was very fast and could beat the timer.

After lunch the students made birthday carsds for B.J. and some of the kids finished making their Daruma Otoshi.

At 1.50pm Rebecca read a story called "The Big Snowball".

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.

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!
