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♪

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!!
