3B Kicks off the year in learning about how to be responsible cooperators in the Physical Education classroom! 

3B Kicks off the year in learning about how to be responsible cooperators in the Physical Education classroom! They began off by playing various activities that involve teams of two, three and even larger.  In the featured photo the girls learned how to trust each other in doing the Blindfold walk.  This takes communication of many forms and feedback.  We were also able to explore the types of feeling that were felt when you are the person who was leading and the person who was blindfolded. Learning to work together, to build trust, to use positive feedback is something that 3B will be exploring over the first few weeks in their PE class!

As the reality of another week of distance learning and disruption of our regular routines sets in this week, I’d like to focus on keeping it simple and go back to some parenting basics.

Whether in Tokyo or abroad, many of us are under self-quarantine. It is important to be aware of cabin fever syndrome – rooted in the feeling of confinement and isolation for an uncertain period of time.

At this time, we would like to encourage our community to take the time to practice self-care.  We might find this to be a highly stressful and challenging period.  We can help manage our anxiety by acknowledging and discussing our feelings about this situation with loved ones or with myself as the KG/ Elementary counselor who is trained and equipped to deal with stressful situations like this.

Art in the library

It has been great to see the art contributions and hear the important discussions that have taken place and note how this competition has supported learning.
