• 2021.04.30Today’s Class 2

    We began having our daily ECT (English Conversation Time) this week! This is a special time intended for children to practice the target conversation with other friends. This month we practiced asking our friends their names. Because today was the last day of April, we had a special review of our phonics from this month. The children enjoyed matching the vocabulary cards with the proper sound! Every Friday, the children look forward to eating their lunch box! All of the children enjoy sharing about the food in their lunch boxes with Mr. Ethan and Ryoko-sensei.

    Today in Class 1 we had our first music lesson. The children had so much fun and were so excited to go upstairs for the first time to the music room. We clapped to the rhythm of the song, with the children deciding we should touch our backs, ears and shake our hands to the beat. Next we tried the Rhythm Sticks, tapping the floor in time to the song as well as hitting them together. There was enough time to try playing the bells too before the end of a fun first lesson with Yasuei-sensei. Great job everyone, it was fantastic to see everyone trying hard and enjoying music together.

    Today was April’s birthday party. It was the first birthday party of the year, and everyone was excited. After the whole kindergarten gathered together, the children with April birthdays came out. They could tell everyone their names and how old the are. After recieveing birthday presents that were made by their classmates, it was time for the teacher’s play. Today, two old shoemakers were helped by two perky elves, who made beautiful shoes for them while they were sleeping. To say thank you for the help, the old men gave them a birthday cake. Everyone was very happy. Good job to all of April’s birthday kids! We hope you had a wonderful birthday!

    今日のClass 8は鯉のぼり製作を行いました。登園すると、Class 8の部屋に宝箱を見つけて中身を早く見たいと楽しみにしていたお子さま達。宝箱の中には園長先生から絵の具のプレゼントが入っていて大喜び!初めての一人ひとりの絵の具なので、使う時の約束や気を付けることを真剣に聞いて取り組みました。鯉のぼりのうろこに絵の具で色を塗り、とってもカラフルできれいなうろこができました。パレットや筆など、使った道具を水でピカピカに洗うことができ、片付けの仕方もしっかり覚えました。今日の製作の続きは金曜日に行うので、楽しみにしていてくださいね!

  • 2021.04.20Today’s Class 7

    We had lots of fun in Class 7 today! The children arrived and were able to play with friends from lots of different classes, before doing our morning exercise. After the Morning Meeting, everyone worked hard to finish their carp streamer craft. During our English Activity, Class 7 received a letter from Phileas Fogg, who had visited Australia to see many things such as kangaroos and boomerangs. The children made and decorated their very own boomerangs using paint, making cool patterns with dots, stripes, and zig-zag patterns. Everyone did so well, and the children received a special boomerang present from Phileas Fogg. After our yummy lunch, we were able to go to Kitakaze Park to practice throwing the boomerangs, and play on the swings, slide, and climbing frame. Good job, Class 7!

  • 2021.04.16Today’s Class 5

    Class 5 had lots of fun today. Today was the last day of our first week, but everyone has settled in nicely. During morning Discovery Time, many friends went to the computer room to use the tablets. The children have been learning how to log in and use QR codes, and have been practicing tracing English letters as they get used to using the tablets. After Morning Meeting, phonics, and ECT, we had an English activity. The children learned about different kinds of baby animals, what sounds they make, and what they are called. We then found lots of eggs with baby animals that the children helped return to their mommies. Class 5 kids also tried hula hoops before doing our first English writing exercise. Soon it was time for packed lunch. And after we cleaned up and brushed our teeth, we just had time for some Discovery Time and a story book before it was time to say goodbye. Have a great weekend, and see you next week!
