熊本インターナショナルスクール 開校記念シンポジウムのお知らせ:7/22(日)








2018.7.22 Event Flier Final


Students have been practicing for our sports festival later this month. The dance is an original choreography set to the song Aloha e komo mai.
Although we still have a ways to go in terms of timing, the dance is shaping up nicely. Three weeks and counting!


KIS students have collectively now read over 1000 books on their Chromebooks!

Students read a story of their choice each day. Stories are divided into 29 levels of difficulty, so each student reads books that are a perfect match for their current reading ability.

Students decided that we would plant carrots, lettuce, and cherry tomatoes in our garden. In preparation for this, students have been studying how to grow the vegetables and what tools we need to use.


プチ劇場 - Reader's Theater

Students practiced the mini play “City Mouse and Country Mouse” today in English class. Students enjoyed taking the different roles of the mice and the cat in the story.

理科 - Preparing to keep pets

Having studied what living things need to survive, KIS students are now ready to keep pets in the classroom.

From a large list of possible pets, students voted to keep fish, tadpoles, shrimp, and possibly clams in a aquarium.

Our class today was devoted to brainstorming how we will construct our aquarium to make sure that the needs of all of the animals are met – including the frogs who will need to be able to leave the water to be healthy.

The conclusion was to put a potted plant in the tank to allow the frogs to leave the water as they desire.

探求学習 - Inquiry Based Learning - Preparing to plant our carrots, lettuce, and tomatoes

As a continuation of our study of how we create healthy bodies, students are preparing to plant their own healthy foods – the class decided on carrots, lettuce, and cherry tomatoes.

In preparation for the planting, we read stories about how to grow vegetables.

健康診断 - Student Physicals

The doctors came to KIS today to check all students heath. Students seemed to enjoy the experience, as did the doctors. Before they left, the doctors commented on how energetic all KIS students are.

IT環境 - Technology in the KIS classroom

Each KIS student has his or her own Chromebook which we use for daily English and math assignments.

This allows us to customize each students’s learning environment to maximize progress and enjoyment.

So far, KIS students have read and listened to over 500 books with their devices!


探求学習の発表- Healthy Food & Healthy Bodies

We are continuing our study of how we create healthy bodies.

Students are coming to understand more about how the choices we make about food affect our health and well-being. They are also understanding more about how many foods that contain oil, salt, and sugar are not healthy when consumed in large quantities.

Today, students presented and explained pictures they drew about some of the healthy foods they eat at home in front of the class.


Today、we had our first music and shosha classes, as well as PE in the park.

The music teacher, Horiguchi Sensei, taught students the correct way to handle a melodion and had students practice singing チュリップ while she played the piano. Students then joined in with their own melodion playing, as well.
