オンライン英語スクール Englishbuds 管理人 Mommy Kayo です。

 

昨日メル講師によるグループレッスンが

3レッスン実施されました。

 

私も時間が許す範囲で見学させてもらいました♪

 

今回からメル講師のグループレッスンは

内容を一部改変しましたので

レッスンの様子をレポさせていただこうと思います(^^)

 

まず15時スタートのRiddle Competition。

もうカワイイの一言ですね♪

孫を見るような心境で見させていただきました。

 

何を言ってもカワイイ♪

カワイイんですけど、

しっかりとした英語での受け答えをするギャップが

さらなる萌えポイントでした(笑)

 

打ち解けるのも早く

最後の方はキャッキャと和んだ感じになっていて

グループレッスンっていいな~♪と(^^)

 

順調に進み、

準備してくれていたなぞなぞを出し終わってしまった後も

即興でGuessing Gameをしてくれたりして

実力のほどをしっかりと見せてくれました♪

 

ちびっことは思えない頼もしさでした!

 

さて、次は16時のマイクラについてのグループレッスン。

毎週金曜日・土曜日20時からの

マインクラフトグループレッスンに

参加してくれているみんなですが

普段は建築などに忙しく、

ゆっくり語るという時間を持つことはできていませんでした。

 

せっかくなのでゆっくり話してほしいなという思いと

今後どんな展開にしたいと考えているのか聞かせて欲しくて

設定したグループレッスンでしたが

こちらの期待通りの内容でした!

 

グループレッスンで話し合われた内容、

メルと相談してしっかりと反映していきたいと思います♪

 

 

最後に17時のディスカッションクラス。

今回は宿題について話してもらいました。

 

ネガティブな意見だけでなく

ポジティブな意見も聞かれ

それぞれがしっかりとテーマと向き合ってくれているなぁ

と思いました。

 

雰囲気はバズ・ディベート部と比べると

和やかな感じでしたが

英語のレベルとしては遜色ないレベルとなり

有意義なディスカッションとなっていました♪

 

これはディベート部、将来部員が増えそうだなぁ~

と思いながら見ていました(^^)

 

もちろんディベートにはディベートの良さもありますが

物事を多面的に見て

賛成の意見、反対の意見どちら側からでも

意見を述べなければならないディベートと違って

純粋に自分の意見を述べることができるディスカッションも

やはり良いなぁと思って見ていました。

 

決して

ディスカッション<ディベート

というわけではないですね。

そんなことを証明してくれた

昨日のディスカッションクラスでした。

 

今後も小学生に身近な話題を取り上げつつ

ディスカッションクラスも定期的に開催してまいります。

昨日のグループレッスンレポが届いております♪

あわせてどうぞ♪

Englishbuds hosted three group lessons with different themes last Saurday, August 29, 2020, and it was led by yours truly (Teacher Mel). Mommy Kayo was also present in each group lesson, monitoring and making sure that things would go well and smoothly.
The first group’s theme was “Riddle Competition”. Three students who were all well prepared with their riddles participated and enjoyed this session (there were 2 cute and smart young boys and 1 really nice, prim and proper and brainy girl). We really had a lot fun solving the riddles. There were times that we really had a hard time solving the riddles, and there were instances that some of them came up with very funny guesses. In the end, I declared all of them as winners as they all did their best in our riddle competition. It really was extremely fun!
The second group lesson’s topic was about MINECRAFT’s game mode. As many of you know, we are holding MINECRAFT group lessons every Friday and Saturday. This time, some regular members of our MINECRAFT group lessons participated the discussion. The participarts were asked to share their thoughts on whether it is more fun to play in CREATIVE MODE or SURVIVAL MODE in Minecraft. Then we talked about the things that they would like to do and build next in our Englishbuds Minecraft World. It truly was so exciting to make so many plans with them. One of the members even plans to make weekly newpapers so all players would be updated about the new rules and new buildings in Englishbuds world. We also decided to hold an election for the name that we would be giving our city or town. I told them that each of them has to think of a good name for our city, then we would all be voting for the best one. Exciting, isn’t it? I am so proud that all of the members of our MINECRAFT GROUP LESSONS are very good and responsible children. Oh, and we also talked about the things that they don’t want other players to do while we are in the game and building something. We all agreed to avoid doing things that would affect other members in a bad way. I really cannot wait to explore the world of MINECRAFT with you, guys (my children in MINECRAFT WORLD, hehe)…
Lastly, the 3rd group lesson, our discussion mainly focused on whether it is important for children to have school homework. There were 4 participants in this session, 2 boys and 2 girls. The two girls were both on the neutral side , one of the boys stated that it is important for children to have school homework, and one said that he thinks that school homework really are not so necessary for students. They all presented their opinions so well and articulately. I was really glad that we were able to touch and discuss all sides of this topic. I made sure that all of them were given enough and equal opportunities to share and explain their thoughts about their stand. I am so amazed and impressed that they can think that deeply at their young age. The participarts were also all so polite and cooperative. They all listened eagerly and showed interest in whatever each of them were saying (their small nods and smiles told me so). They agreed on some opinions and even opposed some ideas in a very nice and friendly manner. In the end, we were all able to understand where different kinds of students are coming from when it comes to issues about school homework. I can say that it was a very meaningful, enlightening, fun and healthy discussion. One of the participants even sent me a message saying how the discussion helped him understand other students’ feelings about having school homework. I really am soooooooooo happy…
Thank you so very, very much again, Mommies and Daddies for letting your precious ones join our group lessons. Thank you, my dearest students… You really are THE BEST!!! Thank you, thank you so very much, Mommy Kayo for letting me handle these group lessons… I will keep doing my best…
