mpi Kids' English Tour 2015

mpi (Matsuka Phonics) holds teacher training events each year in major locations throughout Japan.
The presentations during these events introduce many ideas for teaching English to children and how
to use mpi educational materials.
This year the mpi Kids' English Tour 2015 was held in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka during
October and early November; Mari Nakamura gave presentations in Osaka and Fukuoka and I gave
presentations in Nagoya and Fukuoka.
Our presentations were about helping children develop the skills needed in the 21st century (i.e. the 4Cs: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity) based on the example of some lesson contents
and plans using the picture book, Milkshake Shake. As Milkshake Shake has a strong rhythm and rhyme
in the text we also showed how you can use shakers and clapping activities to help nurture a feel for the
natural rhythm and intonation in the English language.
I also enjoyed Izumi Miyashita's presentations on using readers to develop children's literacy
and she gave us many ideas how to help children develop an active interest in reading and
how to improve pronunciation.
