Shoot!&Sky!!

今日は昨日に引き続き少し肌寒い日になりました!
夏だったのが秋に変わる瞬間の天気のような日が続いていますね♪
子ども達も昭和記念公園に行く途中で「葉っぱの色が変わっている!」「秋になってる!!」など外の自然を通して季節の変化を感じていました♪
昭和記念公園ではボールを使ってサッカーをやりました!友達の名前を呼んでパスをしたり、思いっきり蹴ってShoot!!している子もいました!

Our Saturday afternoon was as crafty and creative as our morning! We were exploring the way air moves as well as having some fun with that most versatile and inexpensive of toys, the classic cardboard box. But, of course, the cardboard box can play many roles, and today it was fashioned into an air cannon! Through the simple task of cutting a small hole in one side and then patting it hard with your hands, you can watch as small objects next to the hole move as the air is pushed out. The kids had a great time watching each other's hair move, as well as small balls. It is this kind of hands-on exploration of the world around them that is typical of the way children learn.

This afternoon, Butterfly Class had an ABC (Phonics) lesson with Jordan-sensei and Jim-sensei. We reviewed three-letter CVC words by spelling them with magnets on the whiteboard. The two consonants were placed magnets on the whiteboard with three vowels to choose from. The children chose which vowel should go in between the two consonants. Afterwards, everyone practiced writing on their worksheets.

Caterpillar Class had an Art lesson with Kozue-sensei and they made Jack-o-Lanterns! Everyone painted them with orange circles and pasted three triangles as a nose and eyes and a traditional-shaped mouth. Lastly, the 0-1 year olds pasted candies around the Jack-o-Lanterns and the 2 year olds pasted witches hats on top.

久しぶりのお外遊び♪

昨日の夕方は雷と雨が激しく降っていて不安定な天候が続いていますね!今日は気温が少し上がりましたが、お外で遊ぶことができ、キャタピラークラスはウオーターパークへ,バタフライクラスはグリーンパークに行きました!日差しが強かったですか時々ふく風が気持ちよく感じキャタピラークラスの子ども達は先生と一緒に沢山走っていました♪また、小さなちょうちょが飛んで来てみんなで追い掛けたり、葉っぱや枝を集めておままごとを楽しんでいました☆バタフライクラスはあと少しでスポーツデイが近いという事もあり、グリーンパークへいって組体操をしました!お部屋での練習とは少し違いあたらめて組体操の難しさを感じたようでした!しかし子ども達は上手にできると先生と一緒に喜び、もっと頑張ろうという気持ちになったようでした☆彡

Everyone at SukuSuku World had a very colourful afternoon! Caterpillar class spent their time playing 'Colour Catch', a game where the teacher says a colour and the class have to go and find something of that colour. Many of the children can now very quickly identify colours by name and understand that different objects belong to the same category if they share a colour.

Meanwhile, Butterfly class played the exact same game(!), but simply as a warm up for their English-lead Science lesson. Today's science lesson was about colour combinations; we started by looking at the colour wheel and noting the difference between primary and secondary colours. Then, we took two cups of water, added food colouring based on the three primary colours (red, yellow and blue) and then put rolled up kitchen towel inside to watch the colours climb up the kitchen towels and into a third cup where they combined to make a new colour! Before we added the kitchen roll we tried guessing what colour they would make, many of the students had very different ideas of what the resulting colour might be. The colours climbed the kitchen towel very slowly so after a while we decided to simply mix the coloured water together. After seeing the results the class became very aware of how the colour wheel can tell us how to mix primary colours!

まだまだ夏・・・?




今日も本当に9月なのか疑いたいくらい、暑くなりましたね💦

お外には出られなかったので、午前中はまず、それぞれのクラスでSports Dayの練習をしました。
キャタピラークラスのお友達は、ダンスを踊りました♪
振り付けを覚えてきている子どもが多く、先生の方を見ずに踊れる子も増えてきました。

曲からずれてしまうと「あれれ!!」と戸惑ってしまいますが、音をよく聴いて頑張って立て直せています。
バタフライクラスは組体操の練習をしました。足や手をピンと伸ばし、堂々とできていました!真剣に取り組む姿はやはり格好いいですね✨!



その後はMariko先生と音楽遊びです♪

今日はタンバリンを使ってご挨拶をしました☆

強くたたいてみたり、優しくたたいてみて音の違いを楽しみました。

みんな上手に手と指を使って叩くことが出来ました!

毎回、「It’s asmall world」を歌うのですが、2番まで歌詞を覚えている子どもが増えています✨ 可愛い歌声で歌ってくれるので聴いていてとても楽しいです♪

となりのトトロの「さんぽ」もうたいました。お友達と仲良く手を繋いで、ジャンプをしたり、どしん~と重そうに歩いたり、ピアノの音に合わせて楽しみました。キャタピラークラスとバタフライクラスのお友達が関わることができるので、とてもいいですよね♪

バタフライさんはその後、Mariko先生の指示に合わせて自転車やヘリコプターに乗ったつもりになって遊びました。ただ椅子に座っているだけでも、自転車を頑張って漕いでいるんだー!!というのが伝わってきました☺❤

This afternoon, Butterfly Class had an English Lesson with Jordan-sensei and Jim-sensei! The lessson began with a maze on the whiteboard; the students had to navigate it without hitting the barriers with the marker. A certain boy won the contest...! We continued with the theme of items in the classroom and asked the question, "Do you have ~?" and the answer, "I have/don't have ~.". We played a game in which everyone closed their eyes and one student would choose an item and place it behind the whiteboard. Everyone had to guess what item was behind the whiteboard using the aforementioned grammar. The students had a lot of fun!

Caterpillar Class were very lucky to have Free Time this afternoon, playing with toys, completing puzzles, playing make-believe and such! Some boys placed bandanas over their heads and pretended to be ghosts, some children made a train with the boxes and some were playing parent with the baby dolls!

ぐんぐん成長中!

This morning Caterpillar class checked up on how their plants were growing and played with their toys, afterwards they had their first dress rehearsal for the Sports Day dance routine. At first the children fell in love with the adorable costumes and couldn't stop talking about how cute they were! But when some teachers started to gather to watch the routine some of the older children became quite nervous and weren't smiling during the dance routine. It's a considerable sign of maturity for them to have such awareness of what is means to perform, the risk of failure and the preparation for the future through rehearsals and practice. After the dance routine had finished, though, the children went back to admiring how cute their outfits were!

Meanwhile, Butterfly class had some relaxed fun before practicing their gymnastics routine for Sports Day. We started by playing a game of 'Musical Statues'! I would play the piano while the class danced around the room, but then once the music stops everyone has to stay completely still, if anyone starts moving they have to sit down. Despite their best efforts many people couldn't help laughing or wobbling after the music stopped, but some students managed to remain calm and still, even when I tried to make them laugh and jump! After 'Musical Statues' we played 'Make a Monster Face', four children would get the chance to stick an eye, nose or mouth onto the monster, but they wouldn't be able to see what they were doing! This resulted in a very funny face that we all had a good laugh at.

午後、バタフライさんは組体操の練習をしました!
以前はブリッジもうまくバランスが取れなかった子もいましたが今では余裕です!
「頭も浮いちゃうんだ!」なんて得意げに見せてくれます♪
d0148342_16093030.jpg
他にも足をくっつけてバランスをとったり、ピラミッドを作ったり…
d0148342_16091931.jpg
難しい事にも挑戦する子ども達の顔はとっても楽しそう&真剣です!
運動会まであと1ヶ月をきり、みんなとってもやる気です♪

キャタピラーさんはEnglish Timeがありました!
今日は動物の名前をやりました。
動物の歌がお気に入りで、お猿さんが出てくる場面では「えへへ―!」と特に盛り上がり、先生達もその様子に笑ってしまうほどでした(^O^)
そういえば少し前まで恥ずかしがっていた2歳児さんですが、最近は元気に手を挙げてくれることが増えました!子どもの成長はすごいですね!!
d0148342_16094386.jpg
また、今日は動物ボーリングもしました!
d0148342_16101154.jpg
体を動かしながら色々な動物の名前や鳴き声をしれて楽しんでいました♪

Eye of the Storm!

Eye of the Storm!

Wow, we experienced some crazy weather with that typhoon, huh? I hope everyone was able to get where they needed to go safely!

First up this morning, Caterpillar Class practiced the Mickey Mouse Club March after Circle Time, whilst Butterfly Class spoke about the sound of rain and wind they heard in the night as the typhoon passed over us, then practiced their coordinated group gymnastics.
d0148342_14225064.jpg
Afterwards, we all practiced the second half of the Sports Day event, which mostly involved Parent and Child events.

今日の午後は0,1歳児さんはお部屋で仲良く遊びました♪
オモチャに新しくキラキラのチュールスカートが仲間入り!
「かわいい~!」「履きたい~!」と大人気!
女の子だけでなく、男の子も喜んで履いていました♪

そして2歳児さんとバタフライさんはCookingでした。
今日は「チヂミ」を作りました!

ニラを包丁で慎重に慎重に切って…
たくさん切ったのでその分匂いも強い!
「なんだこの匂いは~!」と言ってびっくりしていました(*^-^*)
2歳児さんはたくさん頑張って切ったのに、後から何を切ったのか聞くと「はくさい!」と元気に答えてくれました(笑)

生地とよ~く混ぜて焼くと出来上がり!

あんなに強烈だったニラの匂いも、他の材料と混ぜて焼くと香ばしくていい香り!!

大満足のCookingになりました~!!!
