Time flies like an arrow!!! The summer course week one ended in success today!!
Thank you very much for all the parents and students’ cooperation!
On Wednesday, we went on a Picnic at Kodaira chuo Koen(Kodaira central park). After playing some fun games, we had the much-awaited water play!!! The students brought their own water guns and water toys and we had so much fun time playing in the water!! Everyone was wet from top to bottom!!! Eating outside with lots of friends made our lunch taste even better!!!
On Thursday, each students made their own summer greeting cards for their parents and actually mailed them!! We were able to go to the post box before it rained!! I hope the parents will like and enjoy the card their child made!
Friday was filled with lots of fun activities!!! In the morning we made yummy potato cakes!! Each student was given one plastic bag with boiled potatoes and potato starch. Then we mashed the potatoes in the bag with our hands. We then made different shapes and baked them. We ate them during the Summer Festival!
We had Summer Festival after lunch that we all had been waiting for!! We played some great BGMs of Omatsuri (summer festivals in Japan) that made it even more like “Festival”!! We had several shops that students can go to such as face painting, fishing game and an ice cream shop. Students were able to take home the prizes they got from the game corners as well as the things they bought.
The Lucky Kids staff had so much fun time this week!! We are going to miss all of you so much!!
Thank you again for participating in our summer course week one!
We hope to see you soon in the near future!!!
Lucky Kids Summer Course has started from August 11th. The students have had a lot of fun pretending camping in the class room, making ice cream crafts, and playing outside in the park, as well as singing and dancing in English! The range of the students’ ages is from 3 to 10, and we do all the activities together. The teachers are happy to see that the older students are taking good care of the younger students. We are also very happy to see all of the students help teachers move tables and chairs or clean up the room. The two days flied so fast! Let’s enjoy the rest of the week together!
Pull the bag!!! is what we did in Little Diamonds class today.
This is a great exercise for their gross motor skills and a fun game!
The bag was filled with some news papers so it was not very heavy. Students must pull the bag to each Disney characters as they were told.
For Early Literacy, the students are starting to recognize their alphabets very well!! We used sand box and tried to make shapes of the alphabets on the sand.

A month has passed since the Brilliant Class first started. Time flies!! Students have started singing the songs and recognizing some of the words we’ve been learning in class .
Today, we learned some of the alphabet letters through various activities, colors by sorting colored balls, and the family members by making a family tree.
Today in Little Diamonds class, we had some more summer related activities! My favorite was the paper plate fire works.
We had a big paper plate inside a box with some beautiful colors and then rolled the balls. This was very fun and exciting to see all the colors spreading! Making them look like one big firework up in the summer sky!!
Great job again, to the Little Diamonds students!!
Today in the Little Diamonds class, we welcomed a 6 month-old boy for trial! He was such a happy boy all through the activities that we did We started out with the usual circle time activities, the “Hello Song” and “Make a circle”, and we introduced ourselves with the “Bee Bee Bumble Bee” song. Our 6 month-old student loved playing peek-a-boo with his mommy and the teachers!
The Little Diamonds then moved on to playing with bubbles. Big kids practiced blowing bubbles with little help from the teachers while our 6 month-old student looked at the bubbles and tried to touch and pop them. Pretending to swim in the tarp sea with some fishes was a very exciting activity for the kids! Going under the water was so much fun.
Thank you very much for coming to the trial! We hope to see you again:)
We did an experiment on eggs in Brilliant Crystals class today. Students were very interested in finding the difference between a raw egg and a boiled egg. Each student had to guess whether an egg is raw or boiled by spinning it. And to check if their guess is correct, they all had a really exciting experience of breaking eggs with a hammer! It was messy but so much fun! Now they can tell whether an egg is raw or boiled without breaking it!!
What’s going on in Little Diamonds class today?
We started off this week by doing some fun, fun activities with some colorful clay and tricycle!
During Early Literacy, the Little Diamonds learned the shapes of certain letters of the alphabet by placing colorful clay on alphabet clay mats to make letter patterns.
To encourage motor skills development, the “Water and Sponge” activity allowed the Little Diamonds to practice squeezing sponges using their cute and tiny little fingers as they transferred water from one box to another. They absolutely loved it and did such a great job!
Riding the tricycle was equally fun as the Little Diamonds practiced moving and turning it. It was also fun for the teachers!
