Playing Outside with Kinka and Pinka

Playing Outside with Kinka and Pinka キンカとピンカと一緒に外で遊びましょう!


This week’s video is a story! Kinka and Pinka are playing outside. Let’s practice talking about their toys and other things in the yard!




Classroom Tip

Storytime 3 is a chance to introduce the language students will focus on in this unit, including; How’s the weather? It’s sunny/cloudy/raining and the colours red, yellow, green, blue. In addition, What is it? is reviewed, adding new toy vocabulary: bicycle, ball, and car. As with the Unit 2 Storytime, before playing the audio version on the CD, have students watch the video. Then, do as usual, playing the CD and pointing out the important vocabulary. In the following lessons, either play the video only or the CD only. Before playing, ask students to point to things or say what objects they know, then do it again after. This gives students a chance to talk and show you what they are understanding. From now, always point out the weather at the start of class, asking students How’s the weather? If they can’t yet say it, let them choose between two. For example, Is it sunny or rainy? Use the flashcards until they are confident with the vocabulary.



ストーリータイム3は、このユニットで使う英語、「どんな天気?」「晴れ・曇り・雨」と、色の「赤・黄・緑・青」を紹介しています。他に「これは何?」の復習用におもちゃのボキャブラリー「自転車、ボール、車」を追加しました。ユニット2のストーリータイムと同じように、CDを流す前に動画を観ましょう。次にいつものようにCDをきいて、重要なボキャブラリーを指さします。次回のレッスンでは動画またはCDのどちらかだけを使います。再生する前に生徒たちに知っている物を言ったり、指さしたりさせます。動画またはCDをきいた後に、もう一度知っている物を言います。こうすることによって生徒に話すチャンスを与え、どれほど理解をしているかを確認できます。これからは、毎回授業が始まるときに天気のことを指摘し、生徒に「どんな天気?」と尋ねましょう。まだ言えないようなら、2つある選択肢の中から選ばせましょう。たとえば、「Is it sunny or rainy? 今日は晴れですか?雨ですか?」と言います。ボキャブラリーが身に付くまではフラッシュカードを使いましょう。


At Home Tip

After playing the Hello Song, open the Happy Valley Student Book 1 to Unit 3 Storytime. Watch the video and then point to the objects they saw in the cartoon. Say the toys, count the flowers, identify the colors on the page and point out that the weather is cloudy. Comment on the weather where you live and point to the sky for them to see. While your child may not be able to say the new words at first, after a few times, they will be able to identify the objects. Turn to the next page and point to the same objects. Then, do the homework.


If you are not using the book yet, just listen to the story. Ask your child to find similar objects in or around their house. Say the colors, count objects try to find other objects of the same color or number. Talk about the weather each day. Ask your child, How’s the weather? If they can’t yet say it, let them choose between two. For example, Is it sunny or rainy? until they are confident.
