Shooting Star May 27 – 31

The week started off with a fun birthday event for the school. We celebrated all the students who had birthdays in May from the 2 year old up to the 5 year old children including one of our own Shooting Star members. The teacher leading the party read a fun book and we all enjoyed the time together.
今週は毎月恒例のバースデーパーティーから始まりました!シューティングスターからはお誕生日のお友達が1人、お友達の前でしっかりと”I’m 5 years old.”と言えていました。みんなでお誕生日の歌を歌い、先生の絵本の読み聞かせを楽しんでお祝いしました。

This week we started a new line of inquiry about different families around the world. The first activity we did was to engage the students and find out what they already knew about other countries. The students had 3 pictures, a food, a place, and a flag from each country. They needed to put the picture on the poster of the country they thought it was from. We then spent the rest of the week talking about the posters and putting the pictures on the correct ones.
今週はUnit1最後のLine of Inquiry ”Families are different around the world.” が始まりました。
子どもたちがどのくらい海外の国のことについて知っているかを見る機会として、19の国の国旗、食べ物、建物や場所の3つの写真をそれぞれの国にマッチングしてみました。
来週はそれらの国の家族について、私たちの家族の役割と他国の家族の役割の違いを学んでいきます。

We had our regular outside activities this week. One of the activities was walking to a park in Matsumoto City. It has been a long time since we were able to go for a walk so it was nice to get out. The weather has been getting warmer so we decided to start going to the park in the mornings instead of the afternoons.
先週末からとっても暖かくなりましたね!お散歩を午前中に変更して、今週は1回だけ公園に遊びに行くことができました。久しぶりの公園で身体を動かして楽しく遊ぶことができました!

Our phonics time has been fun with our class helper Mabel the koala. She had some family visit from Australia to help us learn some names that start with R. This helps the student sort R words into their Letter Books whenever we have a new star name. The students have been enjoying our new phonics curriculum. They also continue to do writing in their notebooks twice a week.
フォニックスの時間では今週のスターネームRについて学びました。
コアラのMableの兄弟RyanとRebeccaがMableを訪ねて日本にやってきたよ!と子どもたちは大はしゃぎ!!
Rから始まる単語を学んだ後、Rの単語とそうでない単語を分けてR bookを作りました。

Math has been fun this week continuing with weight. This week we challenged the students understanding of weight by putting 2 items that are the same onto our balance, but the difference was that one had more in it than the other. For example, we weighed glue that was the same but one had more in it than the other. This way we can introduce more and less as well so we can get them to think deeper.
算数の時間は、引き続き重さ比べをしました。ただし今回は同じノリでも中身が多いか少ないか、moreとlessの文章を作って比べることができました。

We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
よい週末をお過ごしください!
