Happy May everyone! How do you plan to spend your Golden Week this year? I am planning to try to limit my kids' TV time and do activities that help my kids develop concentration: drawing and coloring, building something with blocks, playing with playdough, and playing American and European board games. I also hope to do a treasure hunt (for plastic gems or shiny rocks) in our yard! Looking forward to family time!
Speaking of Golden Week, do you remember last year at Golden Week? Ken, Junko and I were scrambling to get all of our classes online, figure out how to adapt our lessons to suit online learning, and making sure everyone was set-up. It wasn't a very relaxing Golden Week, but thanks to that time, I am still a Zoom pro! Just kidding! But it helped me become a bit more tech-savvy. Even though I used Zoom for the first time last year, I now use it at least a few hours every week for meetings and lessons. I listed some Covid-19 facts about OLS in the box below. Take a look!
Lastly, just wanted to remind you that we still have all our Covid-19 protocols in place, so please don't forget to wear a mask to the school, clean your hands before entering, and try not to come any more than 5 minutes early if possible. Thank you for your cooperation!
