Flyers-Senrioka School-

In this month's blog we would like talk about how using a finger helps the children with their reading and general bookwork.

The pointer finger which we use everyday when we are drawing attention to something is also helpful while reading.

We have the children use their pointers under the words that they are reading. This helps them to read every word on the page and not skip any words which can happen often with students who read faster with their eyes than their voices. It also helps their eyes to remain focused rather than getting lost on the page.

There are also different things on the page other than words like pictures and symbols. We often have to make reference to these things. To do this we get the students to point to things so we know that they understand what we are doing.
So if you see your children reading or looking at something in a book, you can ask them too, to use their pointers to help them with whatever they are doing in the book.

Kristian.

Monday Flyers Takatsuki

This month we have been studying about differences between "now & then". The students have been learning that the world has changed a lot in the last ten years and that it was very different over a hundred years ago.
During a recent lesson, I asked the students think of one thing they would take to people 150 years ago if they had a time machine.


They drew pictures to show their classmates.


Each student gave a presentation talking about what they wanted to give the people in 1866 and why they thought it would benefit society.

This unit we're working with colors and in this section we're talking about colors we see in our clothing. To begin this section students made the vocabulary cards that we used for the lesson.




Students were given a random color and clothing card and needed to draw a picture of themselves at the ocean wearing that piece of clothing in the color of the card they recceived.


After they finished their drawing they needed to present it to the class and talk about the clothing that they drew.
