It’s been a while, hasn’t it?? I’ve been kinda busy but without ideas for posts, so sorry for the hiatus.
It’s still raining non-stop here, if you can believe it. Well, we did have a week or two with little rain, just scorching hot temperatures every day. But this past Monday brought us back into the tsuyu, and it’s been dark and wet ever since.
Anywhosis, I’ve forgotten to post my bulletin boards for a while; here are the two most recent ones:
I’m particularly proud of the baseball one! It’s the first time I’ve (…sorta) branched away from my own interests, in favor of blatantly pandering to the students. They love them some baseball; the boys, at least.
It’s all about US baseball (and, let’s be honest, mostly about the Yankees), but I included lots of images of Japanese baseball mangas (there are lots), and a bunch of pictures of Japanese League baseball team logos. The nice thing about the manga pictures is that it’s helping to attract the girls’ attention, too.
I just put the bulletin board up yesterday, and the Word Search is already completed. But I suspect my best student did the whole thing. Which is fine, I guess, but she’s a senior and it was a pretty easy game. I was hoping to attract some younger kids. Maybe before I leave next week, I’ll put up two games, one for seniors and one for juniors.
They’ll have all summer to work on it. Because I’M GOING HOME for two weeks, through the start of summer break. Yayyyyy!!!! 😀 8 days and counting!
