Being New in the Big Class...

My Wacky, Wednesday class has a new face from another school. Student "K".

He seems a bit shy and I am trying to find the best way to get him more intergrated into the group.
It is a big class and I worry that he might disappear into the background. Some of the personalities are very big
in that class and I don't want him to feel pressure or feel out of place.

As a teacher with a big class and a new student, it's often hard to balance the two things.

Student "K" comes across as quiet, but I can tell he has an interesting personality!
He laughs at all the jokes from the other students and myself! I am hoping this will continue to encourage him to open himself up more.
So far I am very happy with "K" level of English as it has potential grow and quickily!

Being New in the Big Class can be very scary and but it can be exciting though!

Full House!

The second week of school has brought with it some interesting challenges.
I have a few large classes and one of them is my very wacky and fun 2nd year Junior Highschool class.
It's a full house, I am trying to come up with some innovative seating arrangements to make the class seem less...crowded.

I used an L shaped arrangement for the tables and had the students sitting freely infront of them. Whilst that seemed to work, I doubt it can work for long. I wonder if I could come up with something long term and most effective to run the class smoothly. This requires more thought, but I love that my students want to be involved as well. My student "Y" jumped at the idea to help me re-arrange the class and she was really enthusiastic to explain it to her classmates!

Despite it being a full house, I thoroughly enjoy teaching that class.
The variety of personalities and the overall group dynamic always makes the classes interesting!

New Friendships blooming

Amongst the cherry blossoms this week we have started to see something even more special bloom.
Our students, getting to know eachother and their teachers, and seeing the friendships begin to bloom in the classrooms.

There have been several students I`ve seen immediatly click with each other, and I could easily be convinced they had been friends all their lives.
Others are less immediate, but still warming up to each other in such a wonderful way.

I can`t wait to see how everyone will grow closer throughout this year and I want to support each and every one.

First Week Thoughts.

The first week of the new academic year is always the most stressful!
It is filled with busy teachers, excited students and some anxious parents!
Last week was so busy that I found myself so worried about making sure everything went well!

Thankfully it did. I was very happy to meet my new students and start bonding with them!
My High School students are especially interesting this year!
It was great seeing my students from last year in different grades, feeling even more motivated after their graduations.

I am so proud of how enthusiastic all the students were to get back into their English studies at Amity
and I know this will be a very exciting and successful year!
Let's make the second week just as awesome!

Newクラスで頑張っています!

みなさんこんにちは!
今日は新しいクラスとなった小学校低学年クラスでのお話をいたします。

ほとんど初めて会う4人。
名前は何だろう?という状況でしたが、構文が"What's your name?"だったので、自己紹介をしながら英語を話すことができました。
そして好きな色や食べ物も英語で紹介ができました。

これからも少しずつ自分のことを英語で紹介していき、仲良くなっていきましょうね!
そして、一緒に楽しくレッスンをしましょう!!

Laughter and fun are Priceless!

My New Wednesday Highschool Students are a very interesting group of girls!
Their personalities are so varied but their dynamic is really fun and our first class was full of energy, questions and so much laughter!
I was thoroughly impressed with their reasoning skills and their ability to try their best to explain certain concepts in English!

Student "K" dubbed Miss K from now on has a very interesting and vibrant personality!
When asked to explain inventions, she very aptly said "Develop and level up", which is actually a very clever way
of explaing the idea of inventions! Amazing!

My other student "M" is hilarious and explained a stethoscope as a heart listener! That is fantastic! My remaining students "M" and "H" were so engaged and repeated the difficult langugae patterns with ease. These four girls have a great energy and I am excited for our classes every Wednesday! Speech maybe silver and silence is golden but laughter and fun are absolutely priceless!

英検準備頑張ってます!

みなさんこんにちは!
新年度が始まりましたが、まだまだお休み中の人も多いかと思います。
少しずつ新しい環境に向けて準備をしていきましょう!
今日は英検対策のレッスンを紹介いたします。

小6のYちゃん。
前回、英検3級に合格し、今は準2級に向けて準備をしています。
来年度の3級以降は英検リニューアルが入り、準2級もE-mail問題がライティングに増えます。
今までは聞かれた質問に答えるだけでしたが、次回からは質問を自分で考えなくてはいけません。
そのため、あるアクティビティを行いました。

それは、先生が思い浮かべているもの(例:きゅうり、キリン)を、英語でいろんな質問をしていきあてるゲームです。
最初は簡単な問題から、その後、少しずつ問題を難しくしていきます。
そして、自分がした質問と答えをノートに書いてもらいました。
練習していくうちにスムーズに疑問文が作れるように!
細かい文法ミスもなくなっていきました。

普段のレッスンでも、質問に答えるのはもちろん、自分からたくさん質問していきましょう!
わからないことはいつでも聞いてください!

Memories and Goals!

The start of the new school year has officially begun!
Looking back on this past year, it has been an interesting road filled with ups and downs,
Victories and setbacks! As a teacher it is improtant to take all of these into account
and to continue moving forward! Being a teacher doesn't mean you never stop learning!

I am so excited for the new school year, there are some new students who I am excited to get to know,
ones that I have taught since I started and some that have sadly left Amity or switched to different teachers.
I am filled with the fond memories of the past school year and I am eager to make
this year as successful as the previous one!

New Lesson, New Friends

As of today, our school year has ended, there were some tearful goodbyes for students who had finished their studies with us, many laughs as we reflected on the year, and the excitement of being handed that shiny certificate saying "You Did It!".

Tomorrow begins our new school year, we`ll have many people meeting new classmates and we`ll have many students taking on new challenges, but I know that together we will have an exciting year full of interesting things to learn and new friends to make, I look forward to seeing it through with everyone.
