'Are we going to go to the zoo tomorrow? The day after tomorrow? "
My 4 year olds kept asking this since the day we decided to have a field trip to the zoo, so since about 6 weeks!
And finally: tomorrow!
Teaching animals often is one of the first priorities of teachers, but unfortunately it often ends with cat, dog, lion and tiger.
Using Genki English we have a huge amount of animals, including snails, giraffes, rhinos...(which are all rather difficult to remember for Japanese).
And it goes with 'I like...' and 'Do you like...'
So, usually, the kids remember about half of the animal names included in the song. However, this time~~~they were so motivated because they were going to go to the zoo, that they remembered them all~and MORE. We added Super Simple songs, and got to a pretty deep understanding.
So, tomorrow, 16 kindergarteners, their siblings and their moms and we, will have fun and probably you will hear more about it all, in a couple of days.
Do you go on field trips?
We have been to Antarctica (^_-)-☆
