こんにちは！ This was a fun week!
The cats were very cute – we got a new T.V. table and Olive decided that it was her new favourite place to sit:
Aster contemplated the meaning of life while gazing at herself in the mirror:
I woke up one morning to see Olive, but no Aster. There were no cat lumps beneath the blankets, but when I looked under…
Olive made me put the blanket down again after I found Aster.
On Monday my kids had to do the long jumprope during recess. Their lines ran in a figure eight pattern around the two kids with the rope. I was pretty impressed!
I enjoyed the illustrations of my 6th graders:
And Paul enjoyed the dialogues his students wrote in his comic:
Every year one school in the town is chosen as a demonstration school. This year it was 1sho! I share it with the wonderful Mark, an Englishman. I teach 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade, and he teaches the others. Last Friday was the last demonstration lesson of the year! I taught class 5-3 (5th grade, 3rd class), and we practiced “What do you study on Monday? Why?” A ton of teachers came and observed from the back, so the kids were uncharacteristically shy, haha!
Afterwards we sat through 2 long hours of meetings. I had fun sketching!
We went to Coco’s, a family restaurant, and admired the “brawnie” brownies. I settled on matcha ice cream with mochi!
We also ate yakiniku:
Finally, yesterday I went on a school trip with 1sho to Yokohama! We went to the cup noodle museum and a few other places. It was loads of fun hanging out with my teachers outside of school! I’ll be writing a post about that soon!
Thank you Yamamoto-sensei for taking this picture! (The wall of cup noodles behind us was blown out by the lights, so I went ahead and fixed that, haha.)
So I’ll be posting again soon!
Until then, またね！
