Dear Parents of Grade 1 A
We started term 3 at new school building excitedly!
Fortunately we have a Japanese classroom again.
Every students are so happy!!
I appreciate your continued understanding and cooperation.
And now, we have a Golden Week!
I hope everyone will have a nice break.
(JNL students have a kanji practice and Ondoku 「ずうっと、ずっと、大すきだよ」「てんとうむし」as usual homework.)
Here is monthly Japanese class newsletter.
Please enjoy reading it.
First, the students had a chance to read old tale from all over the world at the topic “Mukashibanashi ga ippai”. I hope they have a chance to read Japanese books during GW.
Next topic was “Tomodachi ni kiitemiyou”. They asked their classmate the pleasant thing each other. They learned saying “そうです” when they speak what they heard.
They also learned how to say months, dates and the days of the week at the topic“Hiduke to youbi”. It is a little difficult for them, because there are several special readings and they are not used to say them. So they repeated to read them, worked hard to say them correcrtly.
Next, they read a story “Zuutto zutto daisukidayo” which is taken from a famous book “I’ll always love you” by Hans Wilhelm. It’s a sad story but a good story. They wrote their favorite part of that story on their notebook.
Also, they enjoyed reading a poem “Tentoumushi”.
Next topic is “Mono no namae”. After GW, they will learn the names of groups (generic concept, more specific concept).
