witch day

台風はあっという間に過ぎて、久しぶりに暖かい日になりましたね♪

子ども達も「晴れたー!」と喜んでいました(*^^*)

キャタピラーさんは駅まで行き、電車やモノレールを見てきました。

いつも行く公園とは違ったのでみんなドキドキわくわくしていました!

その後モノレール下で遊んだのですが風がビュービュー吹いていて、子ども達は「きゃー💦」と言っていました()

バタフライさんは昭和記念公園に行きましたが、こちらも台風の影響か閉園中…。

急遽、その隣にある公園に行きました!

公園では縄跳びをしたり、鬼ごっこをして遊びました♪

帰り道、こちらも風にビュービュー吹かれ何人ものお友達の帽子が飛ばされていました()

それが面白かったのか、バタフライさんも「キャー‼」と言って楽しんでいました☆

shall we count down the days left before Halloween ? We can smell the Halloween ambiance that coming so fast. On the butterfly`s side, we had Art project which was create a witch`s broom from paper color tape fixed to a rolled kraft paper. We started by a paper tape war, we were all throwing the tape everywhere in the classroom just for having fun with our comrades. Then, we rolled the kraft paper to create the broom stick after, we fixed the paper tape on the edge to create the complete broom. Wow !!! let`s go fly into the sky !

Meantime, Caterpillars were playing a Japanese traditional game which is called kakurenbo. Consisted to hide yourself behind furniture without being seen by the master kid who can see everything. If the master find you, you`re eliminated. Yuki was particularly funny because he thought that if he doesn't see the master, the master kid wouldn`t see him, so then he just simply hide his head under a chair, but all his body was visible.

午後におばけ作りをするので、おばけってどんな形をしているのかな~?と、まずはおばけの絵本をたくさん読みました☆
おばけ博士になったので、午後、どんなおばけができるのか楽しみです(^^♪

そして普段は見れない大型絵本も読みました!!
「100かいだての家」を読みましたが、迫力もあって子ども達もとっても楽しそうでした☆
また今度他の本も読んでみたいと思います♪

The gloomy weather went on in the afternoon. But fear not, we shall have fun inside!

We did some creative activity in the afternoon. The kids each got some papers and all sorts of little decorative stuff. There were some shiny beads, some colourful little stones and all kinds of interesting shapes and textures.

Continuing with the Halloween theme this month, the kids now went on to draw their own ghosts. Then, they decorate the ghosts! Wonder what kind of ghosts would they come up with. Let's see!

雨は何日続くのかな…?

今日も雨ですね…
おそらく明日も雨ですが、お部屋の中でも元気に過ごせたらと思います!!

さて、そんな今日の午前中ですが、キャタピラーさんはお部屋でマットやトンネル、ボールプールで遊びました!
ボールプールは久しぶりだったので大人気で、みんな柵の中に入って中々出てきませんでした☆
つい先日とび箱で遊んだ時には1段だったのですが、きょうは2段に増やしてみました!
2段の高さでも果敢に挑戦し、上から大ジャ~ンプ!していました♪

そして2歳児さんは、毎日雨なのでお外に出たいね…ということで図書館へ行ってきました!
ハロウィンの時期でおばけの本もたくさんあり、子ども達は嬉しそうでした♪

バタフライさんはThanksgivingでやる劇の練習をしました。
食べ物の名前がたくさん出てくるのですが、みんなが覚えるのを苦戦する中年少さんは食いしん坊だからなのでしょうか?!
あっという間に名前を覚えてしまいました!(笑)

そしてその後は傘をさしてお外に行って、雨の日にいる虫を探しに行きました。
が、ほとんどおらず、あったのは……

きのこ!!!

きのこがたくさん生えていたそうで、「わぁ~これは何の種類だろう…」と子ども達も興味津々でした☆

We had a birthday party in the afternoon!! Yeay!!

This month all the birthday kids were boys! They all sat in front and the teachers interviewed them. Some of the questions were "How old are you now?" or "What's your favourite food?" etc. The other kids also had their chances to ask the birthday boys some questions. We found out a lot of interesting things from the interview!

Next, we watched and listened to a wonderful Halloween story by the teacher. It was about three friends who were out and about trying to scare people with their Halloween get-ups but they ended up being scared out of their wits by a real ghost! Or was it a real ghost? Nah, it turned out that it was a witch! A real witch! The witch was a kind one though and she gave them all a big, wonderful, delicious-looking Halloween cake. Everyone wanted to have a bite! No worries, kids. We've got our own cake waiting for us in the Caterpillar classroom!

We then moved to the Caterpillar classroom to have our mouth-watering birthday cake topped with whipped cream and a slice of banana. It was heavenly!

Can't wait until the next birthday party!

Rainy day

It was raining again today. Too bad we couldn't go outside again.

The Butterfly kids had their English lesson today. The kids first played a game to refresh their memories on the animals they'd learnt so far. They had to jump and say the word and when they finally made it to the last animal, they had to touch the next person who would then go on and continue jumping and saying the word.

After that, we decided to test out to see if any of the kids had any hidden psychic powers in them. So we put the pictures upside down and then let the kids guess the picture! The teacher would pick a picture and ask, "What's this?" and then the kid would have to guess, "This is a... bird!" or "This is a... tiger!" and so on and so forth. Only one kid from Nensho managed to guess correctly. I guess she's got some psychic power in her haha.

Well we didn't have much time for everyone to try it out but let's play it again next time!

Meanwhile the Caterpillar kids played with colours!

They learnt to identify and recognize the correct colour. The kids had to listen and then get the right objects.

Most of the 2-years-old kids were fine but the 1-year-olds were having slight difficulty to remember all the words that represent colours.

It was fun though!

午後はキャタピラーさんはArtをしました★今日のArtでは11月に行われるサンクスギビングに
使用する予定の「ターキー」をみんなで作りました!!

折り紙を自分でちぎったり、目やくちばしを糊でつけたりと一人で行なう作業が多かったですが
飽きずに頑張っていました(*^_^*)同じパーツをつかっても不思議とまったく雰囲気の違うターキーが
出来上がりました♪♪糊を使う量の調節がなかなか難しく葛藤している子ども達でした(笑)

バタフライさんは、Freetimeで以前作ったハロウィンイベントで使用する
おばけの装飾の続きをしました★作る物がいっぱいのバタフライさんですが、
集中してそれぞれ取り組んでいました\(^o^)/
その後は、ハンカチ落としゲームをして遊びました♪
雨でなかなか体を動かして遊べない日が続いていますが、みんな必死に
追いかけ、座るので良い運動になりました(笑)♪

Finally a good weather!

今日は久しぶりにお日様が出てきて気持ちのいいお天気でしたね

今日は水曜日なので音楽あそびがありました!

まずは「おもちゃのチャチャチャ」です!今日は小さいお友達もタンバリンを叩いて歌いました(^^

その後は「きのこ」の歌に合わせてキャタピラーさんもバタフライさんも一緒になって踊りました!

何人かのグループになって輪になり、手を繋いだり立ったりしゃがんだりしました♪

キャタピラーさんには少し難しかったですが、バタフライさんが優しく教えてくれていたのでとても楽しそうにしていました✨

バタフライさんだけの時間になると、前回音をイメージして書いた絵の発表会をするという事で、歌に合わせて「○○ちゃん描いた絵見せて~♪」「いいよ~♪」と発表し合いました!

年少さんは少し恥ずかしそうにしていましたが、年中さん年長さんの素敵な発表を真似して頑張っていました( *´艸`)

次回も何をするのか楽しみですね♪

Today it wasn't raining in the afternoon. Finally!

The Butterfly kids had their ABC lesson. They sang the song they learnt previously. The song went like this:

Is it yummy? Yes, it is.
Is it yummy? No, it isn't.

The kids sang the song. Now that they'd got the lyrics correctly, they tried to apply it in a roleplay.

They pretended it was lunch time and two kids were seated at the table. They began eating and asking each other, "Is it yummy?" "Yes, it is." or "No, it isn't". It was fun! The kids were eager to try out conversing in English. Let's practise it during your real lunch time as well!

Next, they again reviewed the two letters, B and U. Most of them could write it on the board.

d0148342_17503957.jpg
Meanwhile the Caterpillar kids went outside. It was finally a good weather!!

The kids played with the Hula Hoops. They also had the block-stilts! The kids were pretty good at it!

Since the weather was pretty nice and the flowers: colourful ones were blooming beautifully at the 'Water Park', they decided to have a look at them. The kids tried to identify the colours of the flowers and they managed to get it right most of the time. Ahh, I wish winter won't come so the flowers could bloom eternally.

Until next time kids!

今日も雨だね…(+_+)

最近毎日雨が続いていますね☂

なかなか外にも行けず子ども達も残念そうな様子です…( ;;)

さて今日キャタピラーさんはお部屋でアスレチック遊びをしました!

マットと跳び箱、そしてトンネルを使いましたが、みんなとび箱では自分で登りジャンプをして大はしゃぎ!!0歳児さんも少し手をもってあげると、とび箱にのぼり中には1人でおりている子もいました♪

2歳児さんは色々な動物になりきって、ジャンプしている子もいましたよ(^-^)

d0148342_16523977.jpg

d0148342_16524550.jpg

その後はマットの上でお相撲をしました!お友達と押し合ったりと、ケンカになってしまう子もいるかな…?とも思いましたがそんなことはなくニコニコ楽しそうにやっていました♪




バタフライさんはP.E Lessonでした!

今日は雨の為外には行けなかったので、お部屋でマットと跳び箱と鉄棒をしました★

体操をやっている子もいたりとみんな体を動かすことは好きなようですが、いざやってみるとなかなか難しい様子…(>_<)

特に鉄棒ではどのくらいぶらさがっていられるかというのをやりましたが、みんな腕の力がなかなかもたなく「ダメだーー(+_+)」とあきらめている子もいました(*_*)

d0148342_16530879.jpg

d0148342_16525865.jpg

みんな思っていたよりも出来なく少しショックを受けている子もいたようですが、お部屋でのP.E Lessonを楽しんでいたようです(*^^*)

Today the Butterfly kids had their Arts lesson! Wonder what they were making this time around! Can you guess? Well, since it's Halloween, of course they were making scary stuff! What kind of scary stuff huh?

They were making lots of ghosts. There were the normal ghosts and the more traditional ghosts called the 'Umbrella Ghost'. It's got one eye and it's pretty funny!

The kids had some papers and their scissors and glues so they began making the ghosts. Once they're finished with the basic form, they began gluing the eyes and then decorating the ghosts' bodies. They were sooooo cute, not really that scary haha!

d0148342_17395810.jpg

Meanwhile the Caterpillar kids had their English lesson! What did they do this time around? They refreshed the vocabularies they learnt last time: the animals and the P and O words.

So they started with reviewing the pictures on the board and saying the words out loud together.

Then they sang the Animal song! It was fun to move around!

Finally, it was time to play some games! There were the 'Crocodile Golf' section, the 'Monkey and Bananas' section and others. The kids had throw the bananas in the monkey's mouth in one section and then they had to do other stuff in other sections. It was a lot of fun!
