Venus Flytrap

  I was so proud of one of our 4th grade elementary students, when he handed me this description of a Venus Flytrap plant, (or ハエトリ草 in Japanese.)

  After all the hard work he, and apparently his dad, had put into writing the description we just had to put it on display in the classroom!

ビデオサポート

  Over the weekend I added a ビデオサポート page to the englishpool website. As mentioned in earlier posts, this year we are using the Happy Valley textbooks in our young learner classes, and the folks at Happy Valley have produced a plethora of videos to support the work done in the classroom. I'd like the students, or their parents, to able to easily access the relevant video easily. We already have our own englishpool YouTube channel with playlists for スプラウツ and キンダー, so with the help of the nx-YouTubeBox module from NX-DESIGNS, adding these playlists to the site was a breeze.

   The page is available to view here, http://www.englishpool.net/video-channel

   So now it's now super simple for parents to be able to watch the videos with their children. Enjoy!

Bill & Ben

   Today in our Cafe class one of the students said she had been pulling the 雑草 (zasso) out at her child's school as part of her duties.

   Now ざっそ(zasso) means weeds in Japanese and so, she had been weeding at her child's school. While I was explaining this to group I couldn't get the image of Bill & Ben out of head, so here's the original programme featuring Bill, Ben and Weed.

May I have some _____, please?

  As part of our upper-elementary classes we have been practising making polite requests. Now, I'm a big fan of using realia (real life objects or situations) in the classroom; so what better than to prepare a load of snacks and have the children make polite requests in order to eat them!

  You can hear the results in the accompanying video.

  Thank you to the Explore Our World Level 3 textbook for the inspiration.
