As part of our study of how we create healthy bodies, we are studying about what foods are healthy and unhealthy. Today, students made collages of their own idea of a healthy breakfast.
A core element of our instructional methodology is that students have the opportunity to revise their ideas as they learn more. This process is a central part of the KIS learning philosophy – students need to be free to form their own ideas without having a teacher immediately tell them that they are right or wrong.
Today we had our first PE, led by Yamada Sensei from YMCA. All students had a great time in the hall running, skipping and rolling. On Friday, we’ll be doing PE outside, weather permitting.
We also studied English, math, science, and of course, 国語!
Today, we did both math and science. In math, we began our study of numbers up to ten and different ways to represent them with chips and blocks on a ten-frame. In science, we began our study of living things and what they need to survive.
It was a beautiful day for a picnic, and all students and teachers had a great time on our welcome picnic today. We played games and had fun picking flowers. Of course, nothing beats obento!
Today is the first day at KIS! Teachers and students are spending the day getting oriented and introducing themselves, as well as using the electronic whiteboard.
The school uniform is almost done!
These are pictures of the winter uniform. Check back soon for images of the summer uniform and the 体操服
The school location has been decided! KIS will start opposite Rocket Park, near Picasso.
This location will give us the freedom to play at the park or at Picasso. Click here for a map.
