Thank Goodness for Heated Pools! (Nagano Aurora/Shooting Star November 9th – 12th)

Hello Aurora and Shooting Star families!

Aurora, Shooting Starのみなさん、こんにちは😀

The weather is getting colder, isn’t it?

徐々に朝晩の冷えが厳しくなって来ていますね❄

We have had another fun week at ISN!

今週も楽しくISNの生活を送ることが出来ました。

For our UOI lesson this week, we again discussed emotions. Once again, our Transdicplinary Theme is “How we express ourselves”, our Central Idea is “We can show our feelings in different ways”, and we are currently working our way through our 2nd Line of Inquiry, “Using Body Language/Actions”.

UOIのレッスンでは引き続きEmotionについて探究しました。😁🤣😍😆😴 探究テーマは”How we express ourselves”です。セントラルIdeaは “We can show our feelings in different ways” です。そして2つ目のLine of Inquiry, “Using Body Language/Actions”のレッスンをしています。🖊👀

We started the lesson by reviewing some common emotions by singing our emotions song, and performing gestures associated with each feeling.

レッスンの始まりはEmotion(感情)の歌に沿い、顔で表情を作りながら歌い🎤、復習をしました。

The next part of the lesson was reminding our students that we can use different body parts to show emotions – our faces, arms and even our whole bodies!

そして、顔だけでなく体で感情をどう表現するか復習しました。😀💪🦵🤷‍♀️

To reinforce this, we sang “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”.

“Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” の歌も歌いました。

Next we practiced using our faces specifically to show emotions.

その後は主に顔でどのように感情表現するか練習をしました。😍😴😮🤨😋

To reinforce this point, we created a picture of our face, using crayons, as well as gluing our eyes, ears and noses to make our face lifelike.

個々のアクティティーとしては、鏡をみて自画像をクレヨンで描いたり、描けないお友達は自分の写真の切り抜きをのりで貼って普段どんな表情を自分たちはしているのか確認しました。👀✨

Some students decided to make their faces look angry, while others were happy to keep their faces looking happy.

怒った顔を作ったお友達、笑った顔を作ったお友達、

Everyone did a great job, and made some great faces!

10人十色、それぞれ違った表情を作品が出来上がりました。😉😊😐😲😡

Also this week we had another fun swimming lesson!

今週は、スイミングのレッスンもありました。

Aurora class started their lesson first.

まずはAuroraのお友達です。

Recently they have been getting more used to the water by playing games and using kickboards to travel around the pool.

皆さんプールが大好き💖水がかかっても、顔を水につけるのも全然へっちゃらです。

Starting this week, students had the chance to jump into the pool, with the help of their teacher!

今週初めてジャンプをして入水しました。‼‼‼‼

Students placed their hands on their teacher’s shoulders, and jumped into the water, while being supported by their teachers.

プールの中にいるコーチの手を繋ぎながらプールサイドから順番にジャンプをして入水しました🌊‼‼

This was an amazing step for the students, and everyone was very excited to jump into the pool!

どのお友達もキャッキャ❣と楽しそうに声を上げて入って行きました。どんどん出来る事が増えていきますね😉✨✨👍

Shooting Star class spent this lesson practicing their swimming.

Shooting Starのお友達は泳ぐ練習をしました。🏊‍♀️

Instead of playing games, students used kickboards as well as their own swimming skills to travel around the pool.

今週は水でゲームはせずにビート板で1人で泳ぐ練習をしました。

Also this week, students practiced floating on their backs. This is an important skill to have while swimming, and students performed this technique very well!

背泳ぎのように仰向けで浮く練習もしました。とっても良く出来ました🏊‍♀️🏊‍♂️

Thank you again everyone, and see you again next time!

今週も沢山遊び、学びましたね☆彡それではまた来週😉
