Unexpected Blessings.

The best things always seem to happen unexpectedly. Whether it's recieving a gift or getting good news.
These blessings can come as such a wonderful surprise, that they can brighten up any day!
Such a surprise came from one of my Junior High students "K". She is in a class with three other girls.
It has been such a pleasure watching them gain more confidence in themselves
but also getting to see how bright and bubbly their personalities are.
When I first started teaching them, they were very quiet and serious, seldom speaking up and making jokes.
Now they are on a whole new level. Sharing jokes, laughing out loud and always talking.

Last week, my student "K" shared a souvenir with me from Nagoya. It was limited edition Pringles, which I love!
I was so surprised and happy, that myself and her classmates were in her thoughts during her vacation.

It was such an unexpected blessing! She is so sweet!

Time well Spent

This week as we came back to classes so many students were excited to talk about their vacation, and our lessons armed them with the perfect pattern for it.

our middle grade students this week learned the phrase "how did you spend your summer vacation?" which of course can easily be changed to talk about winter vacation, New years, or even just the weekend.

After helping them connect it to "what did you do?" it was great to hear about all the trips to see family, all the delicious food, and of course all the shrine visits and beautiful sunrises that everyone saw!

小文字がスラスラ読めるように!

みなさんこんにちは!
本日は幼児クラスのレッスンの様子をお伝えいたします!

幼児クラスの年長さん4人組。
みんなで天気を確認するとき、今までは文字を見て正しい天気を探していたのですが、今は探した後に小文字を読んでもらっています。
sunnyやcloudy、windyなど、ばらばらにアルファベットが出てきても認識がしっかりできています!
Good job!!
※iとlやbとdは間違えやすいので要注意!

幼児クラスから大文字・小文字が完璧だと、小学校にあがったときに、より英語が楽しくなりますね!
みなさん、これからも一緒に頑張りましょう!

Nicknames.

As a teacher, you always try to be mindful of your students behaviour. Good or bad. Silly or serious
So, it comes as no surprise that some of the funniest things that happen during the day,
come from students doing the most interesting things.

One of my interactive students "S" and I have bonded very well! So much so that I have my own nickname now.
He never fails to hug and greet me loudly before class. It always has his mother and everyone laughing. The name has stuck now.

One of the other students, "M" tried to call me by that name in class and "S" said, "Khanya Sensei for you. Khani-Chan for me!"

I laughed so hard but I was also so proud because he managed to say it in English!

Play to your strengths

Everyone has their own way that they learn best.
Some of my students are very focused on memorising every bit of vocabulary they can,
Some of them love to sit and have conversations and feel how the language works naturally,
and Some learn their best when its snuck into games.

Lately one of my most invaluable tools in class has been a deck of cards, there are any number of games that can be played, from speed challenges, to games of chance, to memory tests.
if a student doesn`t want to work, the promise of a game at the end is a great motivator, and many of my students take the phrases from the games "do you have...?" "may I have...?" "where is the...?" and have become more confident using them in the classroom.

and that says nothing of their delight when they realise they have beat the teacher at a game, more than once lessons have ended with a group erupting into cheers when I have to admit defeat.

Song of the heart!

My baby student "K" has really taken to her English lessons!
She really enjoys all our lessons and I am so happy with her progress.
She is so talkative now and she even speaks English at home!

Colours, vegetables and fruit are some of the things she can say!
She also likes to sing the birthday song!

It is her favourite and she really tries her best to sing along with everything.
