April 20th, 2018 [Mike`s Diary]

Hello Everyone,

Today was perfect weather to spend a day at PiPi International School. The children were exceptionally energetic today. We had the kids burn off a little energy by conducting a teamwork activity. The children had to work in groups to get a hula-hoop over a smal obstacle course.

They had to use balance and help one another in order to succeed.

2.jpg

After the morning circle we had a fast paced song and dance session.

4.jpg

The kids worked on phonics and reviewed flash cards. They even got to throw a stuffed toy at a target on the chalkboard. We continued our focus on Spring by reading a book about a bird and eggs. A fox tries to steal the eggs, but fails in the attempt.

Today's craft was a bird hatching from an egg. After we finished the craft, we put the eggs in a nest so the mother bird can feed the babies.

6.jpg

The children performed the rainbow song very well. (and loud!)

7.jpg

After lunch, we finished our workbooks and enjoyed some free play. The children played with the big blocks, clay, and drew pictures on the chalkboard.

We finished the day with another book. This time a hen grew wheat from a seed, turned the wheat into flour, and baked bread to share.

Hello Everyone!

Today was dark and rainy outside, but bright and sunny inside of PiPi International School. We started today's lesson by talking about the weather. This month's theme is weather, and Spring usually provides many opportunities to showcase different weather types.

Today's specific theme was wind. We had the children move some cotton balls with wind. The children had fun trying to get the cotton across the finish line.

After the morning circle, we had an exciting dance sesson. The below picture may look like we are resting, but we are actually walking like a snake on the ground!

1.jpg

We had an eventful flashcard time. We had the children identify opposites, and even had a visit from a hungry bear. The children had to pick and identify a vegetable and fruit.

2.jpg

We illustrated the difference between easy and difficult by having a couple of visiting older students demonstrate their cup balancings skills. They had two tasks, one being easy, and the other difficult.

6.jpg
7.jpg

We continued our theme of wind by having the children each make a windmill for today's craft.

9.jpg

We had lunch as usual and finished the day with workbooks and freeplay. The kids were very interested in books and clay today.

Hello Everyone!

Today was a very active day at PiPi International School. We had an unusually large amount of students here today. Fortunately, the staff was in full force and ready for the day.

Today's focus was the upcoming holiday of Easter. (April 1st) The egg is one of the primary images of Easter. We hid some construction paper eggs around the room, and read a story about Easter eggs. The children had to search the room for the eggs. This will prepare them for the actual Easter Egg hunt we will have at the beginning of April.

1.jpg

2.jpg

The children found all the eggs, then discovered the surprise inside. There was a chocolate rabbit inside each of the eggs!

3.jpg

4.jpg

We enjoyed some songs and dance after the morning circle. The flashcard session was very energetic. There was a heavy emphasis on phonics and color identification.

5.jpg

We continued the discussion about eggs during story-time. We talked about how eggs are decorated during Easter. We then decorated eggs for our craft. The children enjoyed drawing on their paper eggs with crayon. No two eggs looked alike. The eggs are now proudly on display in PiPi's front window. The eggs are sitting in their baskets.

6.jpg
7.jpg

Today was bread day. The children enjoyed bread during lunch. There was a tie between marmalade and chocolate for the most popular spread.

8.jpg
9.jpg

The children finished their workbooks and then enjoyed some playtime. Clay was a very popular choice today, as well as the magnetic shapes. A few of the kids are still in pirate mode, and enjoyed dressing up as pirates.

Hello Everyone!

I am happy to report that today was another fine day at PiPi International School. It was a busy day, but we had a lot of fun. We started the day by reviewing shapes. The children were able to identify shapes, and even draw them on the blackboard. Each child had a chance to identify a magnetic shape and place it with the associated drawing on the board.

1.jpg

We enjoyed a stimulated dance session with some of our favorite English tracks.

2.jpg

We practiced some phonics with my favorite alphabet book. A few of the children showcased their ability to recite the alphabet. The children identified objects on the flashcards that had certain features, such as; which objects on the cards in the series had a door.

3.jpg

At story time, we read a book about scary animals and a book about a secret birthday message. We made a present at craft time. The children had to draw a gift inside of a box. They topped the present with a ribbon and a bow.

4.jpg

We enjoyed some birthday cake after lunch. We celebrated three birthdays today.

After lunch the children had a good workbook session. We enjoyed some time with the big blocks as well. A pirate even made an appearance!

Hello Everyone!

Today was a wild and crazy day at PiPi International School. We had a good mix of strong personalities from the children today. We started the day with an exercise to improve their memory and identification of the alphabet. The kids also had a chance to use their fine motor skills. Each child was provided a different piece of the Alphabet Train puzzle. We started at the engine and built the entire train starting from the letter A.

1.jpg

After the excercise we enjoyed some song and dance time. The kids especially liked the "Wheels on the Bus" song. They pretended to be buses and drove around the room.

2.jpg

We also had a fun session of "Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes".

4.jpg

The kids enjoyed a story and then prepared for some outdoor activity.

3.jpg

The children enjoyed going outside and playing in PiPi's backyard. The temperature was warm and the kids were wearing their snow gear.

5.jpg

The kids had fun with sleds and shovels. The kids had a lot of fun playing in their snow fort!

Hello Everyone!

Greetings from PiPi International School.

Today was another great day. The children were unusually well behaved today. We started the moring circle by sharing a secret with each other. The secret was, "good morning". Each student had to whisper "good morning" to the student next to them.

1.jpg
2.jpg

Next we showed the children 3 objects. We placed the objects in the window sill and then covered them with a blanket. We made a change, and the kids had to guess what changed. We reviewed words such as; missing, returned, and upside down.

4.jpg
3.jpg

We spent a little bit of the moring by letting each child talk infront of their peers. Most of the children had a speech to practice, and the ones without a speech were given a line to say based on their skill level. Everyone did a great job.

5.jpg

We conducted a short flashcard session. We concentrated on number identification and phonics. Then, we read a story about different occupations. We asked what the kids want to be when they grow up. Doctor was a popular choice. Finally, we enjoyed craft time to end the morning.

Each child made a face. We identified different parts of the face, such as; eyes, ears, mouth, and nose.

7.jpg

8.jpg

After lunch we had a good workbook session. The children who are in the Happyokai play had a chance to practice their lines upstairs, while the other kids enjoyed some brain stimulating activities.

Hello Everyone!

Today was another fantastic day at PiPi International School. The main focus of the day was to have a rehersal for the Happyokai play.

The kids started the day by making a prop for the performance. They made a map with construction paper and crayons. We talked about a map's intended use and what kind of details are on a map. The kids helped draw the PiPi school house, a road, and the PiPi bus.

1.jpg

After the morning excercise, we went upstairs and conducted the rehersal. We used the map that the children created.

2.jpg

Everyone participated, regardless of wether they will attend Happyokai. Everyone had fun, and it is nice to see the kids progress.

3.jpg
4.jpg

We also practiced one of the songs for the performance.

5.jpg

We finished the practice and continued our daily lessons. The children had great participation in a phonics exercise. They were able to copy the sounds of a native speaker!

6.jpg

They enjoyed a book before lunch, and even had a bit of time for a few dance songs.

7.jpg

After lunch we worked on workbooks and build various object from the different blocks.

Hello Everyone!

Today was a busy day at PiPi International School. We started the day with a science experiment. We showed the students a bowl filled with solid ice. We reviewed concepts such as hot and cold, and soft and hard. The students were told that a famous cartoon bad guys had done something bad. The students discovered that there was something frozen in the ice. They had to melt the ice to find out what was inside.

We ran hot water over the ice and melted the ice. Something was visible, but not completely uncovered. The students made guesses as to what the object was.

IMG_8005.jpg

We finally melted all the ice and discovered that a beloved cartoon caracter was frozen in the ice. They were happy that they saved the character. They told the bad guy to be nice!

We had a very good dance session in the morning as well.

IMG_8006.jpg

After a spirited flashcard review, we sang some songs in preparation of the Happyokai day.

IMG_8007.jpg

We were able to read a couple of stories today. One of the stories focused on sharing. Today's craft was a penguin. The students had to use finger glue to attach a head, eyes, a beak, wings, and a tummy.

After lunch, we practiced the play. The kids had lots of fun, and made some good improvements.
