During two weeks before and after the holiday, Milky Way at students enjoyed varieties of activities.
In Math we are coming to the end of learning about numbers, so we had fun activity while we review what we have learned.
Here are the pictures of MW being an icecream sandae owners!
For IB lessons, our focus is “Where We Are in Place and Time”
We learned about neighbors, cities, prefectures and countries.
With the map of Nagano prefecture we listed up some names of the cities, towns and villages. Also we looked at the surroundings by prefectures around Nagano. MW were surprised to know there are 8 neighbor prefectures!
After the holiday we learned about food from around the world. How much food do they consume within a week? Is it more than how Japanese is people eat? What kind of food do they eat? We matched the pictures and the flags of those countries but that was quite a big challenge for them. This theme will be continued to tune to week.
During our free time we rotate among three activities in a group; sight word fly swatter game, missing monster game and consonant combination dice game.
They are usually very excited to play those games so the time passes very quickly. Those games do not only brings joy but make their brain work while playing so we like it very much.
