3年生 I Love Hiroshima
Friday, December 7th
３年生時のI Love Hiroshimaは、「自分をとりまく地域を外国の人に紹介する」というリアルなテーマで学習します。子供たちは話の内容がよく伝わるように声の大きさやアイコンタクト、はっきり話すことに気を配って意欲的に練習しました。安田中学・高校のMatt先生、Lindsay先生とお話しすることを通して広島への愛着が深まるとともに、Matt 先生やLindsay先生の故郷のことについても熱心に聞き入って、質問をしていました。
Every year, Grade 3 students participate in a school event called “I Love Hiroshima”. They learn how to introduce famous food and places from Hiroshima. The foods are Okonomiyaki, Momiji Manju, and oysters. The places are Hiroshima Castle, Peace Park, and Miyajima. Guest teachers Matt and Lindsay-sensei come to visit our class. Students gain confidence to speak in English through this activity and everybody (including teachers) grow a stronger love for Hiroshima as a result!
Matt-sensei is from Florida. Lindsay-sensei is from the U.K. They shared pictures of their hometown and country’s food with us.
Students were so happy to talk with Matt and Lindsay-sensei as well as other Yasuda teachers who came to visit. After class they lined up to ask questions and do their “Hello Week” game with them.
