• 2017.03.03March ICEC


    The March ICEC is the last exchange event of the school year but it was a lot of fun! All of the mothers who came brought interesting items to share. We were very impressed by everyone`s items and explanations. It was nice to enjoy some snacks many mothers shared while having conversations in English. We talked about hobbies, places we visited, and so much more. Mr. Chris provided a quiz about the United Kingdom and everyone knew so many of the answers. It was a great time and we look forward to more ICEC events next school year. Thank you for coming and see you again soon!
  • 2017.03.02Switch Day Class 1 and Class 4


    Today was the switch day for Class 1 and 4. First we did exercise together and switched over the teachers. In Class 1 we were able to have a lot of fun drawing in the children’s line books. After that the bad snowman came to Class 1. He had taken away some of the letters from the Alphabet board. The children did very well to sneak and get the letters back. They could also talk about what letters they got in English. Lunch followed this and it was very pleasing to see all the children eating nicely. After that we read a story book about some sleepy animals. It was a lot of fun in Class 1 today.

    Class 4 was so much fun today. We were able to do fun activities and reviewed shapes and colors. The children were all able to catch colorful fish of various shapes. They could all say, “I have a red square fish,” for example. After that, the children pretended to swim with their fish to music. A hungry shark came and said if he wanted “blue” or “circle”. The kids had to crouch and protect their fish. We had lots of fun! After that we enjoyed lunch together I read a book. Great job, Class 4 friends!

  • 2017.02.27Birthday Party&Switch Day~Class 4 Class 7~



    Today was switch day for Class 4 and 7. It was a lot of fun to be in Class 7. Today we were able to play a game where ice-cream and zombies were hidden in a house. The children did very well to write the different rooms of a house and try to guess where the ice cream was. This game was followed by lunch and it was pleasing to see all the children asking questions in English and trying to communicate with one another. After the children finished their lunch they did a good job at writing in their diaries about the birthday party. It was nice to see the children’s storybooks and talk about them. It was a great day in Class 7!

    I was very happy to be able to spend the day in Class 4. We had lots of fun playing phonics listening games, and the children showed me their writing and listening skills by filling out their own alphabet bingo cards and listening carefully for their letters. Everyone managed to get BINGO very quickly. All of the kids in Class 4 are excited about becoming Seniors, and they all spoke lots of English with me during lunchtime. What a lovely day!

    Class 1
    Today’s Class 1 English Open Lesson was so fun! The children all did so well and showed how much their English abilities have improved this year. We had fun matching big and small letters during phonics time. Then, the children went to Rainbow Rabbit’s house and helped him catch monsters who stole his colors. The children could say phrases like “It’s under the table,” so well. We sang and danced to two English songs and had such a good time. When the lesson was over, the children got a present from Rainbow Rabbit. They got their own paper rabbits to color. The children do so well and the parents can be proud of their progress. Excellent job, everyone!

    Class 2 and 3
    The children of Classes 2 and 3 did such a fantastic job today and showed their parents just how much they love speaking in English with one another! They did so well asking each other, “Which do you like?” and answering, “I like stars/circles/triangles/squares/hearts” before putting their shape money into the Magic Machine to change their shape into yummy food! It was great to see the children reacting and speaking with one another in their usual loud, confident voices. Brilliant job everyone and a big thank you to all the parents that came to watch today. Thank you for all of your encouragement and support throughout the children’s first year of English lessons here at IYK.

    Class 4
    Today was a lot of fun for the children of Class 4. They were invited to Olmec Island to get back the Teacher’s Assistants. It was very pleasing to see all the children writing three letter words while presenting them in teams. After a quick dance the children were magically transported to Olmec Island. At Olmec Island everyone did a good job of getting magic stones to power up their keys and everyone used a big voice to complete the Olmec Island challenge. The children forgave Olmec for doing bad things to Class 4 and allowed him to become a teachers assistant. Once again I would like to extend a warm thank you to all the families that came to watch today. I hope that you are proud of the progress your child has made throughout the year.
    Class 5 and 6
    Children in Classes 5 and 6 had a great day at IYK today. Both classes received another letter from their friends The 3 Little Pigs and were put to task helping pack warm clothes in bags for their 3 swine friends who had runaway. It was fantastic to see children able to identify items of clothing and the three common patterns- spotted, striped, and checked. After children identified what they needed and packed it into the pigs bags they were pleased to see a photo of the happy pigs dressed in the clothes they had packed. Following their hard work helping the pigs the children enjoyed the ABC Challenge and singing and dancing to Skinamarinky Doo. A warm Thank you to all the families who came to watch today, it was great for you to see your children in action. With only a few weeks left as intermediate students; I feel all your children are ready to take on the challenge of being Senior students at IYK and continuing to build on their English.

    Class 7
    Today’s English Open Class was a great day for Class 7. All of the children had a chance to show off all that they have learned to their parents. For phonics, the children identified and spelled some longer words with very similar sounds like ‘pl’ and `pr.` They then did a worksheet where they asked their friends questions about the times they do different activities during the day, and filled in blank clocks with the correct time. When Mr. Ian left to get something, Mr. X froze him with his magic clock and the children had to battle him. By answering and asking questions about their schedules, the children defeated Mr. X and took his magic clock. All the children had a lot of fun and did a fantastic job today. We are so proud of their progress and hard work learning to tell time. Also, a big thank you to all of the parents and family members who came today. Thank you for your continued support!

    Class 8 & 9

    Both Classes 8 and 9 did a fantastic job during today’s Open English Class. There were a few friends that were a little nervous to speak in front of their mummies and daddies, but everyone tried their best and did a fantastic job using today’s target language and vocabulary with little assistance from Mr. Chris and Mr. Thomas! The children all had lots of fun riding the elevator to the IYK Department store to get presents to take with them to Elementary school. The children could have a short conversation, “What do you need?”, “I need glue, where is it?”, “It’s on the top shelf”, and locate and communicate locations with one another very well. All of the Standard Class Senior children have progressed so much this year and it has been great learning together! Thank you all of the parents for taking the time to come to the kindergarten today and thank you for your continued support over the past 3 / 4 years.
