今回は Term3【8.1~ 8.5】の活動報告です。
Bugs! Bugs! Bugs! Do you like bugs?
Mosquitoes, ants, roaches, and spiders in the home can be extremely bothersome and inconvenient. They are, however, vital to the local ecosystem. Bugs are an important part of the food chain because they support and sustain the lives of many other creatures.
Hello, everyone. I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation. This is Lenny reporting on Summer School Week 3.
This week is special for me because I am assigned to teach the Pre3 class, which was my previous Pre2 class. This week’s theme is “Bugs.” This isn’t a new topic for Pre3s because we already covered Bugs in Pre2 class.
In this third week, each class has been reading the book assigned to their level, working on their spelling book, completing bug-related worksheets, and doing creative bug crafts.
My class read about ants. We explored the body parts, types, and functions of ants. Pre3 gained a better understanding of the head, thorax, and abdomen by making an ant as their craft.
Of course, going outside to play is much more fun. We went to the park in the morning. We were able to visit Momiji-dani. It takes nearly an hour to get there. The long walk provided us with the opportunity to see, hear, and touch some bugs. The beautiful scenery and cool breeze were fantastic.
There is a pond at Momiji-dani, and almost everyone, especially Takumaru, Haruta, Tao, Aoto Uno, Mirai, Taku, and Ayako, enjoyed diving in and having fun in the cool water. We discovered a large worm in the pond, and Ayako bravely held it. Ayako, you are incredible.
The Butterfly Museum field trip was also fantastic. Everyone was ecstatic and amazed to see so many different bugs. It was fascinating to observe the various sizes and colors of butterflies. I’m also pleased to see a moth from the Philippines.
This week, we were able to learn while having fun. We understood and learned more about BUGS through reading, field trips, crafts, and other fun activities. The third week of Wonder Earth was truly amazing!
Stay safe and enjoy the rest of your summer vacation.
