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.

卒園証書授与ではN.M.ちゃんとA.Sh.ちゃんが証書を受け取る練習、お別れの歌では "Stand By Me" と "なごり雪" をみんなで歌いました。歌の練習は先日のコンサートが終わって今週から始めましたが、少しずつ歌詞を覚えてジーナ先生と一緒に大きな声で歌えるようになりました。



2才になったI.I.ちゃんも Strawberry tarte をおいしそうに食べ、笑顔を見せてくれました。そしてずっとお誕生日の冠をかぶってうれしそうな様子でした。

朝みんなが集まると、サークルになって「Good morning!!」と元気に朝の挨拶、そして練習の前にゲーム&運動をして体を動かしました。




ロンパーの "Winter time"、 キンダー&ロンパーの "The help yourself chair" では、みんな覚えた自分のセリフをマイクに向かって練習。R.I.くんは笑顔で役を演じ、見ていたこちらも思わず笑顔になりました。

Hinamatsuri: March 3, 2008


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.

d0114908_9554492.jpgL.A.の時間、ロンパーさんは動物のカード(peacock, koara, alligator, tiger, bear, turtleなど)をテーブルの上に並べ、"~,~, What do you see?"、"I see a ~." と言ってカードを取るゲームをしました。


一方、キンダーさんは 「ひなまつり」 のプリントに取り組んでいました。「うれしいひなまつり」の歌(英語版)のフレーズを書き取りし、絵を描きます。

S.S.ちゃんは、お内裏様、お雛様、5人囃子を描いていました。そして、"Let's light the lanturn. And bring the peach blossoms..........." と、「ひなまつり」の歌を英語で完璧に歌って聞かせてくれました。その後、日本語でも歌ってくれました。


団子の生地を一人一塊もらい、それを2つに分け、さらに2つに分け、4個の団子を作りました。Math の勉強にもなりましたね。みんな粘土で遊ぶように手でコロコロ楽しく丸めていました。

d0114908_18532079.jpgToday kids played fun coordination games by using balloons.

We raced in pairs as students had to hold them first with their arms and then gradually with more difficult parts of the body (tummy, head, neck, between their legs, etc.).

They had a lot of fun racing! and coordination wasn't easy. But they did an
excellent job.

After excersising so hard! they were telling me all the time "I'm hungry! Lunch time?". It was really funny!

Violin Concert: February 27, 2008


d0114908_18483998.jpgSince one of our themes for February was music, we asked a professional musician to come and play for the children.

Mr. Satoshi Inoue of Miharu was kind enough to come and play violin for us.

At circle time we talked about how to behave at the concert, and then had an early snack so we could be ready for Mr. Inoue.

Some moms and grandmothers also come for concert. The kids enjoyed hearing the violin and singing some songs with the violin.

We sang the Tulip Song, and Sanpo (from Tonari no Totoro), and Twinkle Little Star, as well as a couple of others, and we heard a song by Beethovan.

The children were enthusiastic and even requested songs for second concert. At the end of the concert, A.Sh. and N.M. gave him flowers and thanked him.

After the concert we made Momotaro paper and chopstick puppets so we can act out the Momotaro story with our friends and at home.

The kids enjoyed coloring and making the puppets, and we sang the Momotaro Song while we worked.

After lunch we practiced our Teddy Bear Songs and the handbells for the upcoming concert. The kids really love dancing with their stuffed animals.
