A Good Day at School 学校で良い日

I saw this in the store yesterday. Pooh curry. It's beef, by the way.
カナダ人の目でこれは珍しいよ。プーカレー・・・熊肉じゃないね。

But anyway, I had a great day at school today and yesterday. There are a quite a few international - and by that I mean they live in Japan but are not Japanese and thus must start learning hiragana from zero - students. I made hiragana bingo and kanji bingo for their instructor, and I dug up the link to the Ultimate Kana Challenge. Here we see two teachers competing for the high score.
とりあえず今日と昨日もは学校で素晴らしかった。色んな国際(そして「国際」というと日本で住んでいるけど日本人じゃないから零から平仮名を勉強しはじめなくちゃ)生徒がいるので、担当者の為に朕が平仮名ビンゴと漢字ビンゴを作りましたし、最高仮名挑戦のリンクを探した。ここで競争している二人の先生が見える。

The school I was at today has a small hill that has frozen, meaning we all had great fun sliding down it. It was the most fun I've had in a long time as I usually dragged a dozen or so kids with me. Man, why couldn't lunch break be extended past the usual half hour today?
今日の学校は凍っている小坂があるので凄く楽しくてお滑りをした。そんなに楽しい遊びは本当に強い久しぶりな感じがあった。朕が滑ると子供を10人ぐらい連れていった。なんで今日の昼休みが延長してなかったの?!?

The classroom I used doubles as a studio. Man, I've said it before, but I'll say it again - these schools have more AV budgets than do entire Canadian school boards. And they hardly ever use them!
今日使った教室は劇室も。前に言ったけど、もう一回言う:日本の学校は普通のカナダの教育委員会よりビデオ予算が大きい!でもあまり使わなさそう!

One of the activities today was to divide the class and put all the letters in alphabetical order. They had tremendous fun. All in all today was a big success. Off to the Forget-The-Year party now ...
今日の活動で授業の生徒を分けて、二つの組でどっちが字を全部順番的に直せるかの大会をした。とっても楽しかった。じゃ、今からは忘年会に行く・・・

  • So why does the Japanese Education Schoolboard see the need to have filming equipment in elementary schools?

  • The kids do a broadcast at lunch. If they were actually encouraged to do crazy fun stuff like that after elementary school Japan might have more interesting TV shows. By interesting I mean 'not about an old man and his mushrooms'.

  • Speaking of Walt Disney...as long as they're not promoting jewish-ness...I'm sure he'll lend his name to anything.

  • 忘年会。A party usually thrown by the office at the end of the calendar year, ostensibly to forget everything that happened during it and to start afresh for the new. There's also a New Year Party held after - 新年会。
