|Yeah, you could say I've done this "teaching" thing before.|
All throughout the month, I will be doing Halloween activities with the elementary students. I prepared my materials in advance and then pitched those ideas to my JTEs, to give them a better idea of what I plan to do. They were also more than happy to let me laminate my materials so I can use the same things at all of my schools -- it never hurts to ask! I'm still working out some of the fine details, like if we'll be doing candy or not. I bought a bunch of cute stickers at the 100yen shop just in case. And of course, I'll be wearing a witch costume, orange wig & all!
|Apron, pumpkin wand, mini hat! Just a few pieces of my costume.|
As for JHS, I am still working on activities for that age group. It's a bit more difficult to plan since their English classes have more structure than Shōgakkō. I do have a few more weeks to get it together, and I also work at those schools more often.
In other news, Matt and I have many events going on this month. There are a few shrine-carrying festivals, a kimono festival, community events, and a great Halloween party to look forward to! Bring it! Also, I received my first care package from Alyssa, my best friend since 5th grade.
|This was the best thing in the world to come home to on a Friday...|
