Rainy Days = Extra Wiggles

We’re right in the middle of rainy season here in Tokyo. Japan has seen a lot of heavy rain this year, and it looks like it’s going to rain everyday this week.

As teachers, we always prepare for rainy season by planning a lot of very active songs and games. During rainy season, children don’t have an opportunity to go outside and play as much. So, when they come to English class, they have a ton of energy!

Remember that during periods when it’s raining a lot, children may have a little more trouble sitting still than usual. Be sure to plan some extra high-energy activities for them so they can “get the wiggles out.”

The Pinocchio is always a good place to start ^_^!
