Welcome to today's Main Card Review: look.



We studied look in three tenses: look, looking, looked. This represents the present, infinitive, and past tenses.

Our first sentence shows the present tense form, look:
"Look at this beautiful flower."

Our next example shows the infinite form, looking:
"She is looking for her glasses".

Our final sentence uses the past tense form, looked:
"I looked for my pencil, but I couldn't find it."

Keep practicing, and stay cool this summer!

Lesson Review: The weightlifter is strong.

Hello everyone!

For today's lesson review, our 1st to 3rd graders practiced using describing words.

The words we practiced are heavy, light, fast, slow, strong and weak



   fast                                       slow

To make it easier let's practice the opposites: heavy/light, fast/slow, strong/weak

ex. The runner is slow.

How about the weightlifter? Is the weightlifter light or heavy?

You are probably right!

The weightlifter is heavy.



Do you have a favorite animal? Let's describe them next time in class.

See you!

Hello everybody!

I hope everyone's okay and enjoying the summer heat.

For this week's lesson, we practiced talking about some jobs that we find interesting.

First, let's practice weightlifter, skateboarder, runner, football player, sumo wrestler, and cheerleader.

Now, let's ask our friends!

Do you want to be a runner?

Yes, I do.

No, I don't. I want to be a football player.

 

What do you want to be when you grow up? Do you want to be a sumo wrestler?

I hope you let us know in class.

Till the next review.

Main Cards Review: Hit, Hold

This week our students practiced the words hit and hold in many different contexts, depending on their level.



Pre-school and kindergartners learned the words hit and hold this week by viewing pictures of a baseball player hitting a ball and a monkey holding on to its mom's tail. Cute! Our kindergartners also practiced using these words in their present tense forms in simple sentences like, "please don't hit me".



First, second, and third graders were able to review these words, this time in their gerund forms: hitting and holding. Holding is a regular verb, as you simply add -ing to the ending. However, hitting is an irregular verb. You must also remember to spell it with two ts, thus adding -ting.



Fourth, fifth, and sixth graders learned the past tense of verbs: hit and held. That's right, the past tense form of hit is also hit! Do you know what ending a past tense verb needs to be considered a regular verb? That's right, its -ed. Neither of these verbs end in -ed, so they are both considered irregular verbs. English requires a lot of memorization to correctly use all the verb tenses. It's not easy, but I know you can do it!



Keep up the good work and practice your English!

Lesson Review: Would you like shaved ice for dessert?

Hello everyone!

Today let's talk about getting our favorite summer treats from a shop.

This week, one of the sentences that we practiced is

"What would you like to eat? " "I would like to eat a cheeseburger."

Now, let's talk about more summer treats that we like such as

ice cream, shaved ice (kakegori), watermelon, a smoothie and a cream puff

After eating, let's ask our friends

"Would you like ice cream for dessert"?

"Would you like shaved ice for dessert? "

I'm sure they would say "Yes, please." and not "No, thank you. I'm full."

We can even add our favorite flavors

"Would you like strawberry shaved ice for dessert?" "Yes, please!"

I hope we can enjoy a lot summer treats this season and of course practice more English!

Till next time!
