Halloween Fun and Earthquake Drill
 This busy month of October has been fun and also full of information.  First, our students had an important practice: an earthquake drill.  To experience the simulated shaking and taking cover under the table with a teacher was very helpful.  They will remember this more strongly because it was demonstrated to them in such a way, not just discussed.  All of our students participated with a good attitude and effort.  We will continue to have periodic earthquake drills in our own classroom throughout the school year. 

October also means Halloween - and our students have had a lot of fun, singing songs and dances, enjoying plenty of Halloween art and crafts, and learning more about pumpkins.  We were fortunate to be able to get a nice sized orange pumpkin for our class.   It was carved into a jack-o-lantern while the children watched - this was a first time experience for most of our students and to see their interested and excited faces was a delight for the teachers.  They each got to hold and touch the pumpkin pulp and seeds.  I will be toasting the pumpkin seeds later for us to enjoy as a snack.   Pumpkin seeds are a common snack in America, the U.K., and other countries.   But this will be a first experience for our Japanese children.  They also had fun guessing the width of the pumpkin with a string and singing, "Do You Know the Pumpkin Man?" (to the tune of The Muffin Man) using our own pumpkin to pass around. 
Just today we enjoyed a Halloween Scavenger Hunt outside; each child found five pictures hidden throughout our school yard (bat, spider, pumpkin, ghost, and black cat).   Today we are finishing our display wall by drawing and cutting our ghosts to float through our haunted Halloweedn pumpkin patch.  

Our Kangaroo students keep busy with regular lessons but are also chock full of Halloween activities.  They are happy praticing their songs for our Halloween party next week.  We are all looking forward to this party - thanks for coming, moms!  You are in for a treat.
