English Kindergarten **Day2**
前回のブログでご報告したEnglish Kindergarten Day1の翌日
光校・周南校の両校でEnglish Kindergarten Day2が開催されました
It’s the Blue Handed Bandit here, winding down after another full tilt day of English Kindergarten.
Did you pick up on the energy that yesterday’s class was filled with? Well, we brought all that and a bag of chips to today’s class! Which is to say, day two was a delight!
In order to avoid needless repetition, I will not give a full accounting of today’s schedule, as I sought to do in yesterday’s post. Instead, I will highlight the aspects of today’s course that were distinct to that of day one.
The points of differentiation included the theme and vocabulary, the snack, the craft and the destination of our outing.
So, the theme and vocabulary! Our all-star cast of friendly and frightening animals for today included the ever-present frog, the widely loved dog, the delectable cow, the ferocious lion, and the busy bee. What noise makes the frog, the dog, the cow, the lion, the bee? Well we’ve got a ‘ribbit’ and a ‘woof’, a ‘moo’ and a ‘roar’, and a ‘bzzzzzzzzz’. Mitsui resounded with the sounds of wild beasts! Any passerby must surely have thought that we here at PEC keep a secret, hidden zoo.
Let’s talk food: Cream and heavenly dreams – perhaps the easiest way to describe day two’s snacking experience. We made cheesecake dip today and hooooo boy was it a hit! We mixed together surprisingly few ingredients, stirred and stirred and sung and stirred, added some sprinkles for good measure, and suddenly found ourselves gazing into bliss itself, contained in a shiny metal basin. We bathed various animals in that bliss and then ate them! By this I mean, with animal crackers we did dip.
For craft today we turned the utterly dreary and quotidian into the marvelous and extraordinary! That is, we took the lowly clothespin and turned him into a frog or a dog. ‘Transformation?’ you say, ‘How could this be?’ – Well, you see, there’s magic to me! Blue hands and a big smile turn clothespins to frogs when the mind is set firmly towards that end.
Finally, for our outing today we took a trip to the park just around the corner from PEC in Mitsui. We braved the heat and struck out into the jungle. The grass was long, the sun was strong, but our will was stronger still. At bugs we cried hello, it’s to the swings we go! Off and away we could have swung all day. We captured crickets, rolled roly with the poly, batted at butterflies and blew long strains from the grass itself. We were regular adventurers out with the flora and the fauna and our high spirits. We came back sweaty and content, and so finished the second day of English Kindergarten at PEC.
