Setsubun


SETSUBUN

Last Friday was super exciting, though super scary for some of us.
Demons would be coming to school!

When we had all gathered in the big room, Kynan’s Mom explained how Setsubun came about and how Japanese people celebrate it.
Eri’s and Yuika’s Moms told us the Setsubun story in Japanese.
After the story it was craft time.

Ryusei’s Mom explained how the mask was to be assembled.
Once we had all found our tables, we started right away.
Many Moms and a Dad had come to volunteer and help us to make the masks.
It was fun.

K4 and K5 cut their own features, so they could make their masks even more impressive.
So far it wasn’t scary at all.
After the group photos we all sat down on one side of the classroom.
The Moms and Dad handed out roasted soya beans.
That was our ammo to fence off the demons.
Then it happened! The demons came!
They were swaying big clubs, one even a knobbed club! We threw our beans for dear life, while shouting,
“Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi!” (Demons out! Good luck in!).
We were stronger than the demons and they left empty-handed.
No one got snatched, we were all safe.
Now we hope lots of good luck will come this year.

K3 Around the World week

Theme: Around the World
Song: Hello to all the children of the world https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2nYjGy_ZUG8

Sorry for the late update! We got to learn about some awesome countries like Czech, France, Philippines, USA and many more. We made our own traveling bags and pretended to be on the plane. The kids had a lot of fun using their pretend passports and tickets, listening to the flight announcements, and asking for the meals and drink.

Here are the sound effect we used in our class:

LB pets week

Ladybug kids had a great week talking about pets! This week, they learned what pets are. They learned that pets are animals that we keep at home. We feed and take care of them!
Is dog a pet? Yes, it is!
Is cat a pet? Yes, it is!
Is lion a pet? No, it isn’t!
Is elephant a pet? No, it isn’t!
Is alligator a pet? No, it isn’t!
Is frog a pet? No, it isn’t!



They understood that they cannot keep big and wild animals at home! Elephants are too big to be kept at home.

We also read some books about pets! They loved them! LB kids listened to the stories quietly!


We also had an interesting sorting activity! LB kids learned that birds and hamsters eat sunflower seeds! They separated the sunflower seeds from the colorful rice grains and fed our stuffed pets!


We also made crafts that they could display and play at home!



Lastly, some mommies visited our school to read a story about setsubun! And LB kids made their own oni craft!



What a tiring but fun week!!

BB this week

BB Outer Space Week

BB started off this "Outer Space" week sorting the things they can see in the sky to a Blue sky and a Night sky.
For craft, we made rocket ships. Kids colored the rocket body and stuck it to a paper cup.
These rocket ships have a device that makes them blast off using another paper cups as a launcher.
Another crafts were painting the night sky and making our BB classroom moon.
We used the night sky painting as our background when we launched the rocket ships.
We also had a short PE session using balloons as rocket ships.They had a blast!

By the way, BB kids got confused that they thought they can see the clouds only during the day time.
But actually we can also see the clouds in the night sky.
It would be a good chance to take a time to see the clear night sky with your child and find clouds along with the moon and twinkling stars.


Book: I like stars
Song of the week:
zoom zoom we're going to the moon
