Warm Up

The purpose of a warm-up is to help students get in the mood for class. Additionally, teachers will use this time to catch any pronunciation or grammatical errors the student may make and can correct the student or make notes on repeated mistakes that need to be worked on in future lessons.




Students can also bring in their workbook homework to get help with during their lesson. Workbook topics focus on grammar, vocabulary, and types of writing. Although these concepts are covered in class at international school, students often forget key points and need a review. Teachers will explain the topic, giving examples, and help the student work through their assigned page(s) as needed.


Focused Skill Practice

If the student has been struggling with specific skills while speaking, doing homework, or in class, this time will be used to address those specific concerns. What is covered will vary by student. Often, International school students need additional work telling comprehensive stories, using new vocabulary, or creating compound sentences.


Comprehension Discussion 

Checking comprehension ensures our students are retaining what they learned during class and are able to use this knowledge in the future! 
1. Evaluate and discuss ideas and vocabulary presented in the homework
2. Apply and extend these concepts to real life situations
3. Determine and remember the practiced skill from their assignments



Reading is an important part of international school curriculum. Whether it is an assigned book or one selected by our teachers, reading can help students build vocabulary--especially those living in Japanese-only households. Teachers will go through any assigned reading with the student and ask them comprehension questions about the story and vocabulary.


Homework based on skill

Assign homework related to skills, ideas, or concepts the student should continue working on and practicing.





International school students often struggle with their weekly spelling homework and have trouble using new words correctly. Teachers will help students understand the meaning of their assigned words and what part of speech each fits under. Understanding the different parts of speech is important in understanding how words should be joined together to make sentences that are grammatically correct. After students write a sentence for a word, teachers check that the word is used correctly and if there are any grammatical or punctuation errors. If the student has made a mistake, the teacher will walk them through what was incorrect and how to fix and avoid the same mistake in the future.
