Staycation.

The first week back at school has been very busy and interesting so far!
I was quite surprised that a lot of my students didn't have any plans for Golden Week.
Many had club activities that kept them busy the entire week! School really is hectic!
Some visited their grandparents while the rest stayed home and relaxed.

They seemed very happy and had fun playing video games, watching youtube or sleeping!
We often make a fuss about having plans and going to new places but
staying home and having a peaceful relaxing holiday is sometimes better.
A simple stay at home vacation or "Staycation" can do you more for you than having plans.

The Perfect Vacations!

We are finally back from our Golden Week Vacations and I have been hearing so much from students about the exciting ways they spent their Vacation.

From some, I heard stories of travelling all over Japan and a few even visited other countries!
From Others, I got to hear about staying home, relaxing, and catching up on sleep!
Both sound pretty good to me.

One Student in my Tuesday class, R, told me, not about her vacation, but the first thing she did back at school instead, She really loves studying and couldn`t wait to get back to it!

年長さん、歌を一生懸命歌っています!

みなさんこんにちは!
今日は幼児クラスのお話をいたします。

年長さんのNちゃんとMくん。
新しい教科書になり、歌もたくさん変わりました。
今は"Hokey Pokey"という歌を歌っています。
この歌は、"Right/Left"と"Body parts"がたくさん出てくるため、まずは右と左の練習を、そのあとに体の部位の練習をします。
二人とも先生の動作を真似しながらリピートしたり、歌いながら動作したりと頑張っています!

まだまだたくさんBody partsが出てくるので、一緒に身体を動か字ながら覚えていきましょう!

And we're back!

Welcome Back!
Amity will be opening for regualr classes tomorrow!

I'm sure the students are eager to get back to their lessons and learning English!
It has been a wonderful and fun week off and I am so excited to hear about how
students spent their week! It should make for some interesting conversations!

This holiday has been really interesting! Seeing and experiencing new things around Japan!
I hope the students were able to enjoy their Golden Week and I look forward to hearing all about it!
This week, I will be doing "Share Time" in all my lessons, so students have the opportunity to share and listen to
stories about Golden Week! I also want their take on some of the traditions of the holidays during that time!

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

What Should I do?

Not long ago we faced a scary earthquake that had many of my students talking.
Thankfully everyone was safe and sound, But I used the chance to talk to some of my students about what to do when scary things happen.

Everyone had many ideas about what the best thing to do was,
One of my highschool students, R, was even able to give detailed instructions on what to do In many kinds of emergency and explain why.
I had never thought about many of the things she said, but I feel so much safer knowing how clever and prepared everyone is!

It`s very important to talk about these things, so I`m very glad.

プライベートでいろんな人の話を!

みなさんこんにちは!
今日は小学校高学年のプライベートクラスでのお話をいたします。

小5のHくん。
現在はプライベートレッスンで英検に向けた読み強化を行っております。
前のレッスンは、職業のお話だったため、あるアニメキャラクターの話をしながら彼らの職業を言っていく練習をしました!
また、家族のことも聞いてみたうえで、それを英語に直し、発話練習もしています!
自分の家族紹介ができるって、とても楽しいですよね!

今度は親戚にも話を広げていって、いろんな職業を知っていきましょう!

Teach and Learn!

Golden Week is a host of traditions, celebrations and interesting festivities!

I am looking forward to asking my students how they spent their week
and what festivals and events they went to!
I am hoping to teach them some more vocabulary so they can share with
me and the class all the fun things they got to do!

Golden Week is great opportunity to give the students more interesting topics to
speak about during our open discussion sessions but also a great way to get to know them better!
I am also really keen to share with them some of my Golden Week memories
as it will be the first time I am traveling around Japan this year!

I am so excited to teach and learn new things!

All around the world

Now that we are in our Golden week \vacation, I think it is a very good time to think about travel, and that means Maps!

In my P5 class, I have been teaching my students about many different countries and continents, and one particular group on THursdays, D, Y and K have done an specially fantastic job remembering them all.

Geography and maps is a very difficult subject to learn, but all three students have shown they can confidently call out the names of every country and continent we have studied, D and Y even blew me away by pointing each on out on our world map as soon as I put the picture on screen, and K was able to match countries to nationalities and even tell me a little about some of them, like what foods come from there.

Every time I learn something knew from my students I feel so happy!
