Get Well Soon!

小学生Cクラス テキスト(Unit4)

病気や怪我をした時の言い方を学びました。

be sick, feel (sick, dizzy, hot),

have (a headache, a cold),

sneeze, cough

どれも、この季節にぜひ覚えておきたい英語ばかり。

加えて対処法も英語で言えるといいですね。

Eat the right food, See the doctor, Stay in bed,

Use a first-aid-kit, Take some pills

これらの表現を、"should" or "shouldn't" を使って応用して学習しました。

If you have a stomachache, you should take some pills.

If you have a broken arm, you should see a doctor.

If you have a toothache, you shouldn't eat treats.

などなど、小学生Cクラスには、4年生から6年生のお子さんが在籍していて、

みんなこのくらいの英語は、しっかり理解して、使えるようになっています。

初歩の初歩から文法を学んで、ここまでの英語にたどり着いた学習法ではありませんが、

耳から聞いて、少しずつ少しずつ積み重ねて、

もちろん、個々の努力も手伝って、みんな英語がとっても上達しています。

このクラスだけではなく、どのクラスの子ども達も、

みーんな仲良しなのが、私には、とってもとっても微笑ましいし、カワイイです!

イングリッシュプールでの出逢いに、感謝しています☆

今度の日曜日は、クリスマスパーティ!!

みんなで楽しもうねーー☆☆☆

How to Draw an Elephant


During my lesson planning for a class on Saturday I decided that we'd concentrate on the two adjectives 'long' and 'short'.
I'd already decided to use play dough in the class so the kids could see who could roll out the longest sausage, who could make it short. And possibly we could also include 'big' and 'small' in the mix while we were at it.
I'd also decided I wanted to do a little drawing with the kids. I usually catch the kids programming on NHK3 on Sunday afternoons and they always do this really simplified line drawing which the kids at home can copy. And as I often just give them a colouring sheet, thought that if they could draw the picture first it would be so much more fun.
So, what has a long nose? Well of course it's an elephant. Should be easy to find instructions for drawing a simple line drawn elephant on the internet? Think again, 15 minutes later I'd seen hundreds of great elephants but all of them were way too difficult for my students to attempt.
So it was time to put together our guide to drawing a really easy carton type elephant that even your youngest students can manage:


Step 1:

Draw a big arch.

Step 2:

Create the feet and draw a line up to the mouth.

Step 3:

Draw the trunk

Step 4:

Add an ear.

Step 5:

Draw a dot for the eye and add the mouth.

Step 6:

Finish by drawing the tail.

You and your students should now have a perfectly good elephant for colouring or whatever you choose to do with it.
