This student loves coming to class every week to talk about her weekend, things she ate and future plans. She enjoys borrowing books from the library and reading them at home for practice.

This week, she worked on asking if someone wants one thing or another. She understood the concept of “or”, but she had questions about when to use “a/an” or not to use it. For example “does he want an orange or an apple?” versus “does he want pasta or steak?” The teacher explained it to her and she did more examples and showed she understood it.

She is also taking the Eiken 5 exam in January, so the teacher worked on Eiken with her as well.

今日のプリスクールは”O”から始まる単語を習いました。”Ornament” “Octopus” “Orange” “Owl”などです。ちゃんと発話できるようになったら、ビンゴのゲームをやってみましたよ。先生が単語カードを読み、その単語の上に赤い印をつけていきます。最初にビンゴになった子の勝ちです!ビンゴは小さな子供達が大好きなゲームで、新しい単語をすぐに覚えてくれますよ♥ 

今月は反対語についても学習しているので、”Happy Face" と"Sad Face"のクラフトを作りました。紙皿を使い、表側がHappyなお顔、裏側がSadなお顔を作りました。先生がHappy faceの表を見せるとダッシュで走り、裏側のSad faceを見せると立ち止まるゲームも楽しみました。「だるまさんが転んだ」と同じルールです!

間違いやすい英語の意味

日本で英語教育を受けている子供達だけでなく、帰国子女の子供達も良く間違う英語の意味と使い方について書いていきたいと思います。

Many & Much
”Many”は数えられる名詞に使います。
例)I have many friends(私はたくさんの友達がいます。)
反対に”Much”は数えられない名詞に使います。
例)She doesn’t have much money(彼女にはたくさんのお金がありません。)

それでは”Few” と”A few”を見ていきましょう。
”few”は否定的な意味を持ちます。
例)She has few friends. (彼女は友達が少ししかいません。)
ですが、”A few”は肯定的な意味を持ちますよ。
例)She has a few friends. (彼女は友達が何人かいます。)

違いが理解できたでしょうか。”A few”は必ずしも2~3人というわけではなく、文章の前後を見ながら判断しなくてはいけません。文章によっては、もっと多い数を示す時がありますよ。

This student has been learning about irregular verbs “go” and “do” in the present and the past. In class this week she practiced filling in sentences with these verbs where she needed to choose the correct form of the verb depending on the situation and the person the sentence was about. For example, if the sentence said “She ________ karate after school”, the student would need to write “does”.

She has also been improving her writing by creating interesting sentences with adjectives, and describing the setting where stories take place. She also practiced putting sentences in order.

Lastly, this student has started an ongoing project where she is making her own journal. Each day she will write a journal entry about her day, things she likes or doesn’t like, or whatever is on her mind! It’s great practice for writing and also a fun way to get her thoughts on paper. Great job this week!

This student has been working very hard on perfecting her essay writing skills. This last week she wrote essays on many different topics, including an essay about whether she thinks smartphones are positive or negative. She did a great job with the first draft of her essay. For homework, she was instructed to revise and edit her essay and add more details.

She has specifically been working on creating a strong closing paragraph. The teacher explained that a strong closing paragraph is very important because it’s the last thing that the reader reads. She revised her essay, adding more details and organization, and her essay really improved!

Correcting our own work and revising is an important step to becoming a good writer, and this student has definitely made a lot of progress using this process! Great work this week!

This group of students did a great job participating in the songs and activities this week. They started out the class with circle time. After their circle time song they greet each other and say hello. The teacher asked the students how they are and the students respond with emotions like “happy” “sad” and “sleepy.” The teacher also has flashcards where they pick a random emotion or feeling, such as “hot” and “cold” and everyone has to guess what they think it is.

The teacher read a book about school to the students and then introduced the new letter, “Bb”. They learned the words “bird”, “baby”, “book” and “boy”. Most of the students knew the words by the end!

The students worked on making a school book this week. They colored the front of the book, which was a picture of the school. They also worked on the first page, which was a drawing of themselves. The page said “Me in 2018”. The books are going to stay at the school and they will add pages each week and for the holidays. They had a lot of fun!

The students also worked on their handwriting by writing “Bb” and also worked on beginning sounds by distinguishing words that start with “Bb” and words that don't start with “Bb.”

Lastly, the students played lots of games! They played a racing game where they had to choose the correct school item and place it in their team’s basket. They also played an ABC game where they had to say and collect the alphabet flashcards. They had a lot of fun and learned a lot!

Lastly, they played a memory game with school words. They know almost all of the words now and are able to say them very fast when they practice the flashcards. They had a lot of fun this week!

This student is working very hard at improving her English in order to pass a variety of
entrance exams for private schools. She is working on listening, reading, writing and
speaking skills.

This week she is working with her teacher on reading and understanding skills. She read
an article about New Zealand and was asked to write a summary for each paragraph
that she read. She did a great job reading out loud and understanding the essay.

Through reading she was able to pick out words she didn`t know and expand her
vocabulary this way. She then learned how to use them in sentences.

Another core part of her learning this week was new vocabulary. She is working off a list
of new vocabulary words and is studying very hard and learning to understand new
vocabulary and then create her own sentences, demonstrating her knowledge of the
word. She is off to a great start!

This student loves talking about her weekend, her plans, what she ate and anything else that happened to her at school and room. She is able to hold long conversations with the teacher.

This week, she read a new book about a big turnip. Again, the book repeated a lot of the words, but she had fun reading the story and answering the questions the teacher asked.

Next, she worked on a phonics page. She reviews the same eight words and puts them into different sentences. Finally, the teacher tried teaching about proper nouns and regular nouns. It was a little tougher for her, so they will keep working on it more next week.

This student loves talking about her school life, her weekend and her love of stationery items. She often brings her new things to show the teacher. She is a very smart and well spoken student.

This week she worked on reading a list of items that happened and she had to put them in order. Once that was done, she had to write a title, a topic sentence, all of the details in order and then a closing sentence. She needed help putting the items in order, so the teacher assisted her with asking questions such as “what do you do first?”. With those hints and clues, she put everything in order and wrote the paragraph.
