Time to look back on all the achievements of a full year.
First of all:
I am very grateful for all your support, your comments, questions. So, before I start a big
Throughout the year, I have been more on Facebook than here, because most teachers from outside Japan, seem to be around there more regularly.
My Japanese Blog is still regular, and I do try to keep things up here, as well.
Of course if you comment here or have questions or requests I am happy to do so HERE!
OK, now let's see~
Diving into my take outs from "Ditch that summit 2016"
made a book with Google slides
did our first Break Out Activity.
was the last month teaching in Public Elementary School in Japan, after 10 years. Getting ready to go and preparing for some great events in March, I didn't write anything this month.
Again inspired by 'Ditch that Textbook summit', we had several Skype Virtual Field Trips: Portugal and the States, and we learned a lot about animals.
Starting to be active on my Facebook Page.
I committed to a 30 Day Challenge.
30 Days in a row I recorded a mini lesson video, "歌で英語" English through songs.
Meanwhile there is loads of valuable stuff on there, so please go there and if you do so, I know you are going to like it so please push the 'like' button.
Wow~Here is where the roller coaster started spinning without end!
I decided to open my first Online course, a Master Training Course for teachers.
Richard Graham invited me to do a live chat, which had over 2000 views within 2 hours.
As this course was getting such great feed back and requests for more, I started experimenting with another Facebook Challenge: "Phonics Challenge" (21 days, one sound each day).
And, opened another Online course, which is running for ONE !!!Year.
Again, teachers and parents on here are very happy~Thanks to Richard for encouraging me to do all this.
Another thing being a 'first to have' was the start of a series of Mommy and me classes.
Now, let me leave the last 6 month for tomorrow.
