❄️ Let It Snow ⛄️ ❄️ Aurora's Last Week of 2019

“Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…” Year-end Greetings to all. And yes, we had our very first snow of the season in Matsumoto. Not knee deep but still good enough for Aurora to make snow cones and have a snow fight!

「雪~やこんこん♪ あられやこんこん♪」 みんなの楽しみにしていた雪が松本にも積もりました!たくさんの雪ではありませんでしたが、オーロラさん達が雪山を作ったり、雪合戦を楽しんだりするには十分な積雪でした。

One of Aurora students turned 4 years old and the class sang him a birthday song.


We flexed our creative muscles as a class. With our forces combined we took turns drawing and voila…. Mr Muscle Snowman was born! We laughed so hard we decided that we should create more fabulous figures. With squares and rectangles, the very talented Aurora drew robots of all kinds. Each student could readily express what they were drawing and gave their robots names. From Train Track Robots to Terminator Robots 🤖, our imagination just went wild. Impressive! 👏🏼👏🏼😍


It was a week of honing our fine motor skills. We worked on pencil control with tripod grip. STEP 1: Sit upright with good posture. STEP 2: Hold your pencils, three fingers 1,2,3. STEP 3: The other hand on the paper. STEP 4: Focus, eyes on the paper as you trace. We practised scissor skills too. Aurora cut out pictures they liked from flyers and magazines for their “mittens”.


We had our Gym lesson. Aurora enjoyed jumping over “snakes” and simply having a good run in the gym. Till 2020, January 6th, have a wonderful winter holiday break. Happy New Year! 🥳
