Book Review: It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny

Book Review: It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny

This book we recently did for story time with Mercury class, although it was a simple enough story for all three age levels to enjoy.

P. J. Funnybunny is tired of being a bunny. So he decides to travel around and live like a bunch of different animals to fit in somewhere else. He ends up realizing he is the happiest being himself–a bunny!

This book is great for teaching different animal names in English in a fun way. It’s also a cute way to address self-love and accepting what makes you unique!

Many people, not just kids, try to be someone else to see if they will be more comfortable that way. After seeing how different people live, it becomes easier to know who you want to be.

Book Review: My New Normal

Book Review: My New Normal

Welcome to our new series: book reviews from our teachers at ILH!

This book we recently ordered online after hearing about it on the American news.

A 7-year old girl from Michigan, U. S. A. named Mackenzie wrote this book. She struggled with being a child living through the COVID-19 outbreak, and wanted to share her experience to other kids who may also have a tough time adapting to daily life.

We read this book to our students this week and it was easy for them to understand the message of the book. Some parts of the story only applied to the current American school system, so it wasn’t completely relatable. But having a book written by a kid was amazing to share with our students!

久しぶりです!

We are back from Golden Week with another new schedule at International Language House.

This week we have launched our new Zoom class system for students who have stayed at home. This has been a learning curve for both families and teachers. But we have been trying our best 🙂

How have you been spending your time at home? Please feel free to look at our Useful Phrases page in our menu at the top of the blog page to help fill in the gaps while staying at home with your child.

We have also sent out private YouTube links to our clients. These will pair with a large package we sent out to each student before Golden Week. Inside each package includes supplies for crafts, a picture book for each class depending on level, English workbooks, and other activities.

For our students who are taking online classes with us, we only ask that each day before class starts, please prepare yourselves with your Golden Week packages nearby in case we use the English books during our lesson.

Thank you for always following along with us, even with difficult times. We are working hard every day to make sure your child still has many opportunities to learn with us.

We hope to see you all under different circumstances soon.
