Shooting Star July 22 – 26

Hello everyone! We hope you all had a wonderful week. Shooting Star has been having a lot of fun doing activities and going on a field trip this week. The field trip was so exciting! We started learning about buildings for helping people and decided to take the students to the fire station. Here they learned about what the firefighters do and what vehicles they drive. The students also were able to try on the uniforms.
今週はSSのお友達全員が楽しみにしていた消防署見学がありました!
Buildings for helping peopleということで、人を助ける建物ということで消防士さんがどんなお仕事をするのか、どんな車に乗るのかをお話聞いてきました。本物のユニフォームを着せていただき、消防車の運転席と助手席にも乗ることができました!
様々な建物の種類について学んできた4週間。木曜日と金曜日は、建物のフラッシュカードをカテゴリー別に分けました。マッチングゲームもして遊び、来週は一人ひとりカテゴリー別に分けるアセスメントをする予定です。

For math we continued our measuring activity. The students filled in a graph showing the different sizes of the items they measured. While some students colored in the graph, other students continued going around in pairs measuring different items around the classroom. They chose so many different things to measure. It was great to see their commitment to the activity and how much they enjoyed it.
算数は先週に引き続き、Measuring 物を測る ことをしました。measuring graphを完成させ、教室にある物の長さをものさしで測ることを楽しみました。
金曜日はcm(センチメートル)で物を測ることを学びました。

The craft this week was exciting! We combined science and craft together. Last week the students used water and flowers to make colored water and then we froze the water. This week we took the water out of the freezer to see what would happen to the water and how it would change. As the water melted the students used the water to paint. When they were done we put the ice in measuring cups to see how much water there would be once everything melted. They were excited to check and see how much water there was the next day. Since the weather has gotten hot it’s been nice to stay in the classroom and play with the ice to keep ourselves cool.
クラフトでは、冷凍庫に入れたお花の色水がどうなったか、観察をしました。ほっぺに当てて”It’s cold!”と感じたり、”It’s melting!” “I see bubbles coming out!”と手の熱で氷が解ける様子をみていたり、最後にはその色水で紙に色を塗りました。
今週はとても暑い日が続いたので、涼しい室内で氷を触って遊ぶ活動でリフレッシュしました。

Please take care in the hot weather and have a great weekend.
本格的な夏が始まりそうですね!よい週末をお過ごしください。
