<< Summer English picture book event for 4-6 year olds in Tokyo | main | An original way to use English picture books at junior high school in Japan >>

Having fun with future nursery teachers

On 6th July I was invited to Jissen Women's College in Hino to give a presentation on using picture books to teach young children. All of the students were in the first year of college and studying to become nursery teachers in the future.

English is only a minor part of their course but they understand the great value in using picture books in both languages.

Using two of my picture books as examples (Peter the Lonely Pineapple and Lily and the Moon) I demonstrated how to read a story (with shadowing by the students) and activities related to the stories including games, songs, movement, dance, simple crafts and presentation skills. At the end each student drew what they wished to see on the moon (the pictures ranged from ice cream to shoes to lots of friends) and presented their picture to the class. It was good timing because the next day was the Star Festival - so why not wish upon the moon as well as the stars?! I had a great time - thank you so much Jissen students and Chiyuki-sensei for inviting me!
