Muna Kids English Circle
We held our fourth Muna Kids English Circle of Spring 2018 on Mother’s Day. We had many fathers come who gave mothers a break. Kids enjoyed the games together with their cool dads!
This matching game combines a puzzle game and card game. Kids had to make pictures by collecting 3 cards while passing cards around. In the elementary class, kids were challenged to describe the matching pictures in English. We were surprised how much vocabulary they had and we were very happy. In the kindergarten class, we admired that little kids were patient and worked hard to finish their pictures even while some other kids had already finished their pictures.
We added another rule later. This rule tests attentive skills. The rule uses psychology where people don’t notice other things well when they focus on just one thing. The kids who played the original version of Spoons and Pig before remembered the rule well and they got better at paying attention to 2 things at once.
This time we played “London Bridge” again. This is a fun game because there are many friends to play with, plus parents made tall bridges, so it became even more fun. We saw wonderful smiles on both kids’ and parents’ faces. It was a good time with a lot of laughs.
In the elementary class, the kids played memory during parent discussion time. In the kindergarten class, we played it with the parents. This version required making sets of 3 cards (the same cards from the Matching Game). It required high memory skill, and the kids enjoyed it because they already recognized the cards to make a set. How about playing memory at home, too, for your brain training?
Parent Discussion Time
This time we got questions from fathers about how to use English phrases differently or how to answer questions. We noticed that some of the fathers’ English levels are quite good. One of the fathers spoke with Nam in English. This may be because they need English for their jobs or have to go on overseas business trips. Parents, please use your English skills at home for your kids! The important thing is to get used to English. Even if you can’t pronounce well like a native speaker, you can start by saying, “Here you are,” and “Thank you.” If parents think it’s embarrassing to speak in English, kids will feel even more embarrassed to speak English. Let’s make kids feel like speaking English is normal. We’re looking forward to seeing how our Muna Kids family improves!
