group shot - ni nen sei
Originally uploaded by Jason In Japan.
First two classes on Friday were with the ni nen sei (2nd graders) at Taisha Shoogakkoo (Elementary). In 30 years, these are the kids that will be in charge. :)
We learned parts of the body. Played a sort of Simon Says game that we call "Jason Says," and then played a game where the kids race-to-the-board and slap the body part on a chart after I call it out.
They also sang me a song. :)
This is one of the two great classes of 2nd graders at Taisha Sho. They all wear these Romaji nametags so I can call on them by name, which is nice. They're wearing the normal winter uniform for Taisha Elementary.
