Today after teaching a Christmas lesson to one of my favorite 3rd year classes at my elementary, the kids took me by surprise!
Soon as i finished the farewell, they all ran up to me at once pushing dozens of Christmas cards they had written for me into my hands!
I thought this one was cute. My Japanese isn’t amazing but it basically says.
English classes are fun, even though I don’t understand any English at all!
I now understand because the explanation was clear.
Please continue to teach me in the future.
It’s been one of those shougakkou 小学校 (elementary school) days that are bad for my ego.
Three of my san nen 三年生 (third grade) girls got in a heated argument that ended in an epic janken battle!
Kana: Daniel you are the most handsome man (lit:イケメン) in Japan.
Hana: No you’re wrong, he’s No. 1 in the whole world.
Ayumi: No no no, in all of space too!
tl;dr According to 8yr olds I’m the most handsome man in space!
Today I taught a 1年生 (first grade) One Piece themed lesson that I had been working on all week and needless to say the kids went crazy for it, BIG SUCCESS!
After class one of my students came up to me and was like ‘This is Tako-Sensei. He is my hero’ (Today’s grammar point). If you are an ALT and would like to check it out or use it I have uploaded it in the link below.
I rocked up to work today at my Thursday shougakko To find a little booklet full of letters to me. A couple of my 2年生小学校 (2nd year elementary) kids had written me notes to say thank you as they had so much fun during our last class where we played the ‘evolution game’ and I taught them the ‘jellyfish song’ かわいい!!
It’s days like this I think to myself ‘yeah I’m doing something right’ （＾ω＾）
Just spent the last 90 minutes building and playing with サッカーロボ (soccer robots) in rika 理解 (science class) with a couple dozen 10 year olds at my Tuesday elementary school, pretty much had the best time ever!
