Cherish the memories(Rainbow- December 19-23)

思い出を大事に レインボークラス 12月19日から23日より

Hello everyone,

Welcome to another fun week here in Rainbow.

It’s Christmas time! Our monthly song “What do you want for Christmas?” reminds the children of the Christmas present they are asking to Santa. They can’t stop talking about the toys they like, and their upcoming appointments with their families. They were able to use the phrase “I want a.. robot, train, blocks and more.

Learning numbers 1-20. Our youngsters enjoyed our activity of counting numbers using the laundry clip to pick up the pom poms, counted and dropped them into the appropriate numbers written in each rolls. This wonderful Math activity can also double to help children develop their fine motor skills that involves the strengthening of the small muscles in hands and fingers.

Newspaper dress up. We ended up this month’s lesson about clothing by doing this activity. Our youngsters lined up patiently and waited for the newspaper clothes they asked for the teacher to make for them. After that, we interviewed each of them what they are wearing and they actively answered ” big ribbon, skirt, vest, hat.” We played the music and they danced with the rhythm of “Rockin’ around the Christmas tree”, and danced merrily. We also reviewed the name of clothing by asking each of them what they are wearing, pointing on their clothes.

Match the clothes to the weather. We also discussed to the children on what to wear in Sunny and hot weather and in cold and snowy weather. In hot days, they chose t-shirt, shorts, sandals, sunglasses and hat. and in cold and snowy weather they chose scarf, sweater, boots, mittens, knit hat, jacket and ski wear. Well done, Rainbow!

We had a blast playing in the park.

Earthquake drill done in the classroom.

We conducted the earthquake drill without any prior notice to the children. We observed how they will react and what to do during the calamity. When they heard the bell rang, they hid under the table quietly. When we were informed that the shaking calmed down, we asked the students to sit down and explained what was happening. Kids listened attentively when we explained the rules to remember when shaking occurs. These rules are O- Don’t push Ha-Don’t run Shi- Be quiet Mo- don’t return Te- Cover head with hands. Good job, Rainbow!

We cleaned our lockers.

We asked the children’s cooperation to clean their own locker before the long holiday. Each of them grabbed a rug, wiped their lockers and put away their clothes in their craft bags. When they were done, they told their teacher, “Look, it’s clean, I did it!” Thank you so much, little helpers!

Happy Birthday!

We celebrated the birthday ofour December celebrant. His classmates sang happy birthday and greeted him with a big voice. When he was asked of his age, he showed his three little fingers saying “I’m three!” He felt delighted having a birthday card from his teacher with the crown on his head. Happy happy birthday our sweet little boy. Let’s have more fun and make good memories everyday.

It has been a wonderful year spending with the kids. Thank you parents for your continued support, We will be missing you and we are looking forward to see you after new year. Enjoy the long holiday.
