Hop and Jump!

2017年02月07日 Posted by Chika

プリスクールのラーニングセンターで『HopとJump』をコンセプトに沢山のアクティビティーをしました。

その中でも『Jump Over the River Challenge』というアクティビティーはみんな楽しそうに何度も「Jump! Jump!」と言いながら上手に岩の上や川を飛び越えたり、片足跳びの”Hop”もジャンプとしっかり聞きわけて頑張って片足で跳んでいました!

楽しく参加してもらえたらと思います!

 

Rain! story fun

2016年08月04日 Posted by Chika

Hello Mommies and Daddies,

In June/July we read the story Rain. In preschool we made our own umbrellas to use during our story skit, to shield us from the raincloud. This has been lots of fun and a great way for the younger children to join in. We have all had so much fun lifting up our umbrellas to shout “But not on me!”

It has been wonderful to hear from mommies how the children use their umbrellas at home, and enjoy reading the story.

In After school, the children are so eager to show off how well they can read the story. Every story time almost the whole class comes up to the front to read the story together. It is so wonderful to see how much fun everyone is having reading rain and adding their own *pitter patter* sounds and actions to the story.

We hope that mommies and daddies at home can also have the opportunity to see their children enjoy reading this story. We would like to thank mommies and daddies for supporting their children so much at home listening to the CTP stories, as we can really see everyone’s hard work in our lessons!

 

 

 

Having fun reading clocks!

Chika

Hello Mommies and Daddies,

We have finished our June/July Learning Centers, and we just have to share with you how much fun we had playing with clocks!

In Afterschool, we were playing What time is it, Analogue vs. Digital and Time Bingo, with great success! Not only are the children reading the clocks and understanding the different times in English, but they are having so much fun challenging themselves.

What Time Is It, has been lots of fun with the children rushing to find the right time on our giant clock to stand. They have been taking turns being the “teacher” and changing the teacher clock to tell their friends the time to go find. Being a part of the clock has really helped the children understand how to read the clock, and also how to ask about the time in English.

Analogue vs. Digital has had great results, with the children’s understanding of the time in English being more than we imagined. We started in June by focusing on just ‘o’clock’ times such as ‘7 o’clock, 9 o’clock’ etc. The children have really enjoyed having their own personal clocks to play with and show to their friends to help everyone in the group get the right time. We have since moved onto playing with other times such as “seven thirty/7:30” and “seven ten/7:10”. It has been great to see how excited and proud the children are to play at such an advanced level. We have even had some mommies say they didn’t realize their child could already read the clock so well!

What has been really great for us as teachers to see, is how the children are teaching each other. The children have been showing each other their clocks to help their friends change it to the right time, and helping explain to friends the more difficult concepts of “7:30” and “7:10”.

 

In July we started to play Time Bingo, where the children have their own bingo cards with various clock faces on them. Everyone has had so much fun playing time bingo, and the children’s ability to just listen to a teacher say the time in English, understand it and find it on their own bingo card really shows how much they absorb English when focusing on the playing aspect.

We hope that all the children in After school will be able to show you at home how they can tell the time in English, and we hope mommies and daddies can have fun playing time games too!

 

Parent’s Day Fun!

2016年07月04日 Posted by Chika

Hello Mommies and Daddies,

It’s been a couple of weeks since our special Parent’s Day party but we’re still talking about how much fun we all had. It was great to see the children enjoying showing their mommies and daddies what we do here, and even seeing some mommies and daddies join in!

During our free play time, we had fun in our play house area setting the table, cooking food, and matching and hanging up the socks on the laundry line. We also practiced throwing balls for the Rocket Ball Toss!

We had lots of fun doing our April/May How Can I Help? chant and it was great to see how many of the children remembered it still.

In preschool we had fun showing our mommies and daddies how we brush our teeth with props, going through all the actions together. For afterschool riddles, we played a guessing game where the children listened to the teacher describe what they do at home, and the children guessed the activity such as “I brush my teeth”, “I wash my hands” and “I wash and dry the dishes”.

In afterschool, we had Story Description where everyone, including mommies and daddies, described the story “We Can Share at School”. We even had a very spooky page where everyone could see a ghost in the background, so scary! The children were all so excited to show how they can use English to describe the story book, and to see their parents use English too.

The fun really started when we sang “Rock Around the Mulberry Bush” and danced whilst doing the actions for all the activities we do early in the morning!

As our Learning Center games have been such a hit with the children, we wanted to invite the mommies and daddies to see for themselves how much the children are having. So for Parent’s Day we played a special game of Apple Sorting, as we split into teams and raced to see who could put all their apples on the trees, matching the colors and sizes as we went along. This was so much fun, as mommies and daddies joined in racing between  the start line and the trees. We are so glad that mommies and daddies were able to see how much fun the children are having with their Learning Center games.

The Story Reading competition was a tough one to call, with both the mommy and daddy team and the children’s team reading the stories, How Can I Help? and We Can Share at School loudly.

For our special Parent’s Day craft we made an Apple Family Tree. This was great fun, putting together the tree and being able to see everyone’s families working together to make it. We hope that you all enjoyed making them to have up in your home.

We finished our Parent’s Day with Presentation Time where we saw all of the children read their favorite stories. It made us all very proud to see the improvement each child makes between every time they read their story, and we are grateful to all the mommies and daddies for their hard work at home. We are so glad that we could all experience such a special Presentation Time together.

Thank you to everyone who joined us, we had so much fun showing you how we have fun with English and we can’t wait till the next party! We are always happy to have mommies and daddies join us during our normal lessons too if you would like to see what fun we get up to.

Have a great week!
