Halloween Party - Takatsuki Ibaraki School

On Saturday October 31st we had our first Takatsuki Saturday School Halloween Party. It was great to see so many of the children in their costumes. They certainly looked happy to get the chance to dress up.

みんなが思い思いにドレスアップして登校したHalloween Partyの日。
クラスごとにハロウィンを取り入れたレッスンやゲームで盛り上がりました!

Mostly it was a fun day of games and activities so the children could relax and enjoy the Halloween atmosphere. Here the Cubs are playing a tossing game, trying to get bean bags into the Jack O'Lantern mouths.
Cubs Classの楽しいパーティの始まりは、シューティングゲームから!


As part of the day we also made sure to learn about what Halloween is and some of the vocabulary that comes with Halloween. Playing a memory game using Halloween vocabulary cards.
次はハロウィンに関するボキャブラリーを増やせるように考えられたカードゲームです!
みんないくつ当てられたかな?


The Wolves class also brushed up on their Halloween vocabulary learning words like vampire, ghost, witch and haunted house. Words that we used throughout the day for different games and activities.
クイーンとプリンセスとスパイダーマン、3人でボキャブラリーのおさらいです。
いつもの勉強のスタイルですが、雰囲気が変わると新鮮な気持ちで取り組めますね。


The Wolves class playing the very popular game, monster pong! Each child had two cups. They had to take turns throwing eyeballs (ping pong balls painted to look like eyeballs!) into each others' ghost cups. If a ball landed in your cup you lost that cup. The student with the most cups left at the end of the game was the winner. Fun and noisy!
その後はみんなでピンポンゲーム!
いつもと違うのは、ピンポン玉に目が描いてあること・・・。



But there was one part of day where the smiles faded...the Haunted House! The children took turns walking down the spooky corridor to the Haunted House to ask the monster inside for a Trick or Treat. There were some tears but most were very brave and it turned out the monster was more than happy to hand out candy and no one got eaten!

“Trick or Treat!”  パーティを楽しんだら、お菓子をもらいに行こう!
でも・・・暗いし怖いし・・・ヘンな音がするし・・・。「どうする?」「誰が行く?」「みんなで行く?」
ピンクのドレスのプリンセスは、勇敢にも一人でお城の中に入って行き、中にいるモンスターからお菓子をもらいました!小さな子から大きい子まで、みんな良く頑張りました!来年はもっと怖いかも?!
Overall it was fun day and the children all had a great time. We look forward to seeing some more spooky characters in our classes next year for what will surely be an even better and scarier Halloween party!

Flyers (Senri Yamada School)

The children love making grammar into a card game! Everyone made grammar cards starting with pronouns (I, You, He, She, It, We, They) and verbs (am, are, is, are/ was, were, are) . We added more cards every week such as 'a' 'an' and made many crazy sentences.
We need picture cards to finish the sentence as you can see in these photos. Playing with the grammar cards help everyone not to be afraid of experimenting with words.  After we finish learning a pattern structure we moved on when we felt satisfied. Searching frantically for the right grammar card and making mistakes was fun!

Movers (Senri Yamada School)

G1 Movers

Here we are working on our activity books provided by the teacher. This month we have been learning about foreign currency


We like working in our books because they give us a chance to be creative and make


We have been working individually as instructed by the book to create our own ideas of what shop we would have and what we would sell including the dollar value


We usually do our book work on the carpet so that we can take a break from working on the table


We like role playing to help with our conversational skills. Here we are pretending that we are shopping for food with the teacher as the vendor. We had to make the sentence: How much is/are the -----?


We enjoy playing games to help motivate the learning process. Here we are doing a memory game where each student got to be the teacher and take away a card from the line up so that the other students had to guess which card was taken


Here we are pricing food so that we can buy it off of the teacher. This exercise helps with our mathematical skills as well as our brain building
