Well, here we are back in the classroom for the second stretch of the year.

It was nice to see all the kids again. Usually there are some big changes in them as they get back to school from the summer vacation. They were however quite relaxed and easy-going. Getting into the new lesson chapter...

Lesson 4-2 The Second lesson - "Can you...?" Practice-Review...

Sep 15 2009 0 Comments

In this lesson we started off with the Chant, testing the kids first if they remembered sing, fly, and swim.

For some reason I could not get the melody of the song out of my head and I even surprised myself that I had actually memorized the whole chant without even reviewing....

Well, it really feels like ages ago since I had done these classes for Book 2. I really haven't seen the students for about two weeks due to the "Silver Holidays."

Starting the class was simple. A quick greeting and a "long time no see" comment to the kids. I hope they remembered...

Here we are for the last lesson of Lesson 4, in our series for teaching with the verb "can."

For starters we began with the usual chant, and although the kids had perfected it already, it was good for warming-up and just to save some precious lesson time for their presentations we opted to do it acapela which worked just fine...

n previewing the new units, the first thing that 'catches my mind' are the really simple titles (like on page 30) in the top left hand corner...

For us native speakers of English they must seem really simplistic, but for the titles in kanji I'm sure there are deeper truths behind them just waiting to be prodded and investigated further...

Just so I don't forget, I'll note down first the order of today's lesson. The teacher's guide begs to differ but here it is...

...Of course, most of these lessons are running very differently around Japan but our HRTs and students here are very comfortable with the "Eigo Note way" so...

Oct 15 2009 0 Comments

I was lucky I had the morning lesson free for previewing what was to be done today. We had to fit in the Guessing What quiz on page 32 into today's lesson with the other items and today's lesson was important since we had the Town Guide Game to do as well...

Here is the order of today's lesson...

Lesson 5-4 The Fourth lesson - ... Town Guide Game and a New Board Game!...

Oct 22 2009 0 Comments

I was still lucky. I had the first two morning lessons free for some preparation time.

I wanted to create some kind of game to supplement the Town Game Activity. The CD rom was not on the menu today since the kids would be busy moving around their desks getting ready for the town game....

We were able to use the new touch panel-screen TV today so it was a bit of a change from the normal routine. We have two of them at each school in our city, but I'm not sure about the rest of the schools out there...

...They do get popular, though, and there are usually 3-4 teachers a day that are trying to...

The kids have even made many open positive comments at the end of the class that the lessons seem more interesting lately...

Quizzes and more: we felt it was good to go over the flags with the kids again just as a quick and easy warm-up since...

Also, it was quite fun to show some flags from Book 1 which gave the kids a wake-up call and something new to try and recall the name of the countries. They actually have a very nice set of flags and country names in their Social Studies textbooks so...

Nov 15 2009 0 Comments

The last lesson in Lesson 6 for our students and for the year turned out to be somewhat productive.

The students were willing to go through the ordeal but having to review and spend time on preparing and warming up in groups took a little more time than expected.

We outlined the lesson like this: ...1. Greetings and Introduction
