One Yellow Fish

Shiori, one of our lesson assistants, visited New York recently and she brought back this book as a present.

One Yellow Fish by Linda Kranz, features, as well as the aforementioned yellow fish, other fish of different colours, sizes and shapes.

It makes a great addition to our ever expanding library of children's English language books. There are over 1100 titles in the library so far, all available for englishpool members to borrow.

As well as a selection of board books for younger children, we have the complete set of Oxford Reading Tree, titles from Jolly Phonics, Rigby Star ans Collins Big Cat readers. So there's something for everyone to enjoy.

15th New Year Kids Museum

  Last Saturday, 11th February, saw the 15th New Year Kids Museum event held at the Ushigome Tansu Centre. We were proud to be able to support the event through placing two advertisements in the event pamphlet, one for englishpool and one for The Three Little Pigs.

  This annual event is organised by Shinjuku Kodomo Gekijo, and as well as featuring performances from the various circles under the Shinjuku Kodomo Gekijo umbrella (including Kobuta wadaiko, The Diamond Lilies gospel group) there are also performances from other organisations run for children in Shinjuku-ku (including Unicycle Shinjuku Azalea, Yuttarino and Shinjuku Junior Leaders.)

  I am always surprised at the high quality of the performances and the professionalism of the event, and this year was no exception. It really is amazing what can be achieved by people volunteering their time and energy.

 P.S. Next year I'll try and write this kind of post before the event...to encourage you to attend, like.

Toyama 1-Chome Newsletter

We were asked by my local Chokai Association (think parish council) if we could provide a one point lesson for their upcoming newsletter.

Naturally we said 'yes'; so after a bit of brain scratching we came up with the theme of directions, as it's probably the most common reason for foreign visitors and the Japanese population to interact.

I also got to have myself featured as a local business, cue mug shot:

The owner of Andy's Country Farm in Wakamatsucho, who provides the flower displays for The Three Little Pigs was also featured. So all in all not a bad bit of free publicity.

Thank you, Toyama 1 Chome.

 

P.S. Actually it's not the first time for them to be featured, check out last summer's edition on our facebook page.
