Volunteer, Teaching Japanese

Hello! I’m Momoka from Wing9. We have only a few days left. My last volunteer at Manning Elementary School and British School will finish this week.

At Manning Elementary School, I taught origami, hiragana and janken to American kids every Tuesday and Thursday. At British School, I taught hiragana and katakana, read some books in Japanese and show some Japanese children’s story anime to the students who had Japanese parents or mother.

These volunteer were very fun and kinds are so lovely! I’ll miss them and never forget their shiny smile!

こんにちは!ボストンでの生活も残りわずか… 今週でManning Elementary SchoolとBritish Schoolでのボランティアも最後です。

Manning Elementary Schoolでは毎週火曜日、木曜日におりがみやひらがな、じゃんけんなどをアメリカ人の子供たちに教えました。British Schoolでは毎週金曜日に両親またはお母さんが日本人の子供たちにひらがなやカタカナを教えたり、日本語で読み聞かせをしたり、昔話のアニメを見せたりしました。

Boston Life

Hello! We are Wing 9 students!

We have only 3 weeks left, so recently we tried to go out and eat delicious food. We went to Boston Burger Company and The Salty Pig to eat hamburger and pizza. Both of them were so big but not so expensive. You should try to go there. We recommend these restaurants!

Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday

 

We had Thanksgiving Day for the first time. Thanksgiving Day is most important holiday for Americans. Many American people have a dinner with their family on the day, or many people travel. People usually have a special big dinner such as turkey, pies and so on. We actually ate turkey in Showa. And many stores discounted items on the weekend. So we went shopping. It was good deal!!

 

We enjoyed Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday.

Hello. We are wing 9.

 

Last Sunday, I did volunteering at Boston Common. That day, Pumpkin Float Festival was held on the Frog Pond. Before the event began, I helped to decorate the area around the pond, set up tables, preparing pumpkins, etc.

During the event, I sold balloons. That day was very windy, so I was worried that I released balloons into the sky. But it was okay. Many people came the event and bought balloons. They almost sold out!

At the last of the event, a lot of pumpkins floated on the pond, and it was so beautiful and fantastic.

I could communicate with many people through this volunteer work, and it was great experience for me to do volunteering with local people. I enjoyed this event so much!

JFK Library

Hello, we are wing 9

Last Friday, we went to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. This museum is about the memory of John F. Kennedy who was thirty-fifth president of the U.S. We could learn his personal history. It showed how people loved him and won the election. Of course, there was the story of his assassination.

There was a Japanese doll which was gift for his daughter, Caroline, from Japan, so we could feel the connection between the U.S and Japan.
