Monday’s Classes

ee year old student understood its meaning. Fortunately, the two year old grasped the meaning to day. While we were playing the action verb card games, I am very sure the three year old student was reading the cards or at the very least recognizing the sounds and possibly other letter sounds of the letters in the words. I hope so, but I will make the game a little more challenging for more clarification. This class has is very fun and challenging. The goal for the next several months is to have both students pass the phonics.

The second class was fun. There are two students in the class. Today activity was actually a test. They stated a subject and verbs test during the last class. I explain to them how to do the test. We went over five problems. Today, they continued with the test. The ages  of the students are for and five. The four year old student did well. She is about have way finished with the test. The five year old has about five more problems to do. This test is very simple to comprehend. After this test, the students will take two more tests, then advance to the next level.

The third class was very challenging. For a few months I have been showing the student how to make  questions from statements. For example:

1. I see a car.

There are three questions that can be made from this sentences. I teach a not two of them. The most basic question “What do you do?”, will be tought In the next and final level of our English program. The other two questions

1. Who sees a car?

2. What do you see?

are taught to the students. We have a system that shows students how to make questions simply. Well, today, I wanted the students to do the steps in their heads. One of the students understood. That student loan s a sixth grader. The other students are in the first to the fifth grade.  Today’s lesson was a bit challenging. The first grader grasped a lot. During the next class, I am sure they all should understand what to do without me writing lots of information on the whiteboard. This class has learned a lot of things. Once they understand how to make questions from a declarations, they will start having discussing short conversations I have prepared for them. This class is very fun.

4:10 Class

Today, we did some reviews of the ABCs and verbs and adjectives. We played games and did some phonics. The students are very active. We did some letter search and word search using a dictionary. The next level to the goal of reading is for the students to match the sounds to the letters. Both students speak and repeat words ana sentences I say and they are remembering cards and can say what the cards are.


Today, we finished with the conversation. I gave them their grammar text. We will start that next week. I am so excited. I know for a fact that they will so well. The students are very smart and active.  


Today, we continued with making questions from sentences. They are understanding more and more. They tell me what to do ana I correct and mistakes. This class is fun. I hope they will be able to move to the next level were we will start having actually conversations in English.

The students have to pick the correct card from a group of cards. They are gradually memorizing the cards. I think one of them is actually reading some the words on the cards. We also played with blocks that had different shapes. This class is progressing well.

4 o’clock Class

We sang songs and played some card games. One of the students looked up words in a dictionary, while the other student searched for words on an ABC letter search A4 placard. We did phonics practice too. I asked the students, “How are you?” The natural answer is “I am fine”, but in reality any reply is fine, so I asked that question, then showed them some adjectives cards to which they are to answer, “I am ....” plus the adjective the card is displaying. We all counted our body parts. I had them count individually. The funny thing is that the one year old says repeats after me, and he also repeats after the older student as well. Concerning the dictionary, the three year old student is looking up words. That is great. I will be happy when he starts finding three to four words in the time allotted.  The one year old student asked for the ABC placard himself as soon as he saw me grab a dictionary. I am anticipating the three year old student to pass the phonics test in about six months and the one year old student to pass is a month or two afterwards. The students are doing well.

5 o’clock Class

The student in this class moved to the 7 o’clock class. Everyone in that class are at the same level.

6 o’clock Class

The students in this class are reading the second conversation called “Let’s Go Shopping”. They are doing great. The students are four and five years old. Today, we did some translations. They write themselves. If needed I write more legibly. They are doing very well and the pace of the class is getting faster and faster. I will talk to their parents and inform their parents that they are doing well enough that they can advance to the next level after they finished the next conversation. Wow!

7 o’clock Class

The students are doing great. They are learning to make questions from sentences. The goal is for them to ask questions naturally like native English speakers. Everyone is participating actively. They are answering the questions I ask themselves. I am hoping that they will be able to advance to the next level in a couple of months.

4:10 Class

Today, the students sang and played some card games. We focused on phonics and using a dictionary. One of the students who is three years old has just start looking up words in a dictionary. The other student who is one year old is recognizing the ABC cards that I show him and he he able to find that letter on a card with all the letters on the alphabet on it. The one year old student is beginning to repeat more of the phonics that I say. I am hoping that he will pass the test within the next four to six months. Both students are gradually staring to say the names of the cards I show them. That is a grear thing. I am hoping that both students will pass the phonics test we have by April of 2019 and advance to the reading class level.

Today we continued to make sentences with on word. The student understands what to do. His level is advancing weekly. Today’s sentences that were made was “A beaver had blown a tree.” This sounds strange, but it is fine. Next week I will show Hime how to make questions from statements. His understanding is great. I am happy

Today, we continued to read “LET’S GO SHOPPING”. The students reading is great. Both of the students  read more than 70%  of the story correctly. We started translating the story in to Japanese for comprehension purposes. Next week we will play a reading game. If their reeding skills for the next conversation is good, I will start teaching them basic grammar. The students are very active and very happy in class

Today, I continued to teach them how to make questions from statements. They are doing great. They are doing very well. I am waiting for them to tell me what to write on the whiteboard and after they comprehend what to do, then I can teach then we can start having conversations. All of the students are very active and happy in class.
