Around Town

 This week in our Kinder classes we are starting Unit 2 in the Happy Valley book, looking at places around town.

 Although some the vocabulary may be a little difficult, it does set up the scenes for the rest of the book as we move around town to visit the beach, a restuarant, a clothes shop, a toy store etc..

 You can find a couple of videos over on our YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCy2-Rtl0KF6y7LzkBPt6IQ

What's in the Witch's Kitchen?

  Having a lot of Halloween fun with the excellent What's in the Witch's Kitchen? book by Nick Sharrat

  This year I've had a lot of success using it in the elementary classes, as we've recently been studying house vocabulary; so the book has come in handy to recycle some of the language we've learned.

  I've also got to teach them some new words such as 'nasty goblin wee' and 'rabbit plops.' :-)

Playground Craft

  We had a lot of fun making, and playing, with this playground set in our Kinder classes.

  The children have been learning playground vocabulary such as slide, swing. see-saw as well as the verbs, run, jump, climb etc. This craft allowed them to bring all the words together as they moved their character around the playground.

  Big thanks to the Welcome to Our World teacher resource book for the idea.

Toyama Kindergarten

 Today we were asked if we could display this poster for Toyama Kindergarten, and as we have every year we said, 'yes'. Especially as many of our own students at englishpool attend, will attend or have attended.

 The poster looks great, and is a departure from their usual hand made and cut posters.

 And to be fair to other child-care facilities/kindergartens in the Wakamatsu-cho, Kawada-cho, Okubo and Toyama areas here's a list:

  Chacha Higashi-toyama Kodomo-en

  Yochomachi Kindergarten

  Waseda Kindergarten

  Okubo Kindergarten

  Frontier Kids

What's Tomica in English?

 I was asked a few weeks ago by a mother and son, who are relocating to the UK soon, "What's Tomica in English?"

 As someone who grew up in the 1970s my first thought was Matchbox cars..we call them Matchbox cars...but hang on didn't they change to Corgi during my childhood...and then again are Corgi cars still in production?

 Seems the best answer I could finally come up with was "Toy cars, we call them toy cars."

 For those who don't know Tomica here's a link to their English site, www.takaratomy.co.jp/english/products/tomica/index.html

New Kinder Pamphlet & Webpage

  Here' s a photo of our new Kinder class pamphlet.

  From this April we'll be using a new textbook in the classes so it's a good time to have a redesign of our printed material.

  I've also created a deicated Kinder class webpage with all the information prospectve students may need.

 

  Next...to do the same with the Elementary, Junior High School, Adult and Sprouts classes....

A Killer Whale and a Flower

 Not the title of a new children's book but two presents that I received yesterday from two students in the Kinder class.

 'Is it for my birthday?' I asked (even though my birthday is in January). 'No' they both replied. It seems the killer whale was just cool and the cherry blossom was just pretty.

 Thank you anyway!
