Today was the last day for one of my high school first grade NELP students. She's moving to America and I sincerely wish her all the best, though I will miss her. We had a little goodbye party for her in class today..

A couple of first graders 'got the giggles' in NELP class.
The second graders attempted to draw a person described in "Getting a Haircut in the Army", a non-fiction piece about a haircut-gone-wrong during the US Civil War.

This term, the junior high school third grade students are studying improvisation and extemporaneous speaking for their term project.
Today, the students improvised a situation loosely based on Monty Python's famous Parrot Sketch.
My only regret was that I didn't film them. They were hysterically funny and gave brilliant performances.

This week, the junior high third grade NELP students had a GREAT discussion about one of our stories: "The Rock Garden" by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston.
We talked about the Manzanar Internment Center and about WWII. The students did a great job.

Thanks to Seishin teacher Jeff, I have learned something new and useful: iDVD. iDVD is an Apple application that can create DVDs that can be played on any computer or a regular DVD player. It can also make DVD menus. It is superbly easy to use, and I'm quite happy with the results.
Here are a couple of screenshots from last year's first grade video project:
