Dear Parents of Grade 6
Here is monthly Japanese class newsletter.
Please enjoy reading it.
After reading the story“Heiwa no toride o kizuku”, the Grade 6 students wrote down their opinion about peace and announce it in a class. They understood the tragedy of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and believed we must never have another war.
And at the topic “Seikatsu nonakano kotoba” They learned how to speak showing respect for others in their daily life. I really would like them to use these respect words in their daily life correctly.
Next topic was the story “Yamanashi”written by the famous author
”Miyazawa Kenji”. We tried to feel his great expressions. We also talked about what is “Kuramubon” in the story. There were different understandings, some of them said it’s a ray of light or it’s crab bubbles or it’ a plankton. In any case, the “Kuramubon” is only the author knows.
They had reading homework for this story. Some students is apt to forget their reading homework and some of them still haven’t finished it. I know it is a hard time to read this story because of long story. Please encourage them to do it. I always appreciate your support and cooperation.
Now we are reading “Ihatobu no yume” about the author, Miyazawa Kenji who wrote “Yamanashi”.
