Today’s snow adventure brings us to the field with another one of my tiny elementary schools. It was another teacher’s “Waku-waku” time. I don’t have any clue what “waku-waku” time is, except that it means whoever is in charge of it (student or teacher) they get to choose what we do, and it’s usually something active.
Today Yamada-sensei got to choose. She’s a tiny little 22-year-old from Asahikawa (she’s absolutely adorable!).
So everyone headed over to get their snow gear on . . . except the ALT. Unfortunately, I only got to watch today because I hadn’t know we would be going out and didn’t bring snow gear or a change of clothes. It was still fun to watch.
We started out with the customary, line up. Yamada-sensei addressed all 8 kids that go to this school and told them the plan.
The plan was to do a relay with a soccer ball, going out to the cone, bringing it back and then handing it off.
Since I couldn’t even out the teams, the principal decided to take pictures instead.
The snow was deeper than he anticipated!
M runs with the ball to the end.
Yamada-sensei is up to her knees in snow.
Owari-desu! (It’s over).
