#873 Parents day~interesting experience for all of us

Parents day

I’m teaching English to elementary school children at a cram school.
Once a year I have to have a lesson in front of their parents. Actually their mothers come to see how hard their children are studying in my lesson. I have two classes for the 6th grade, 9 students in each class.
This year, I was still nervous but I think I did better than last year.
With their parents in the same room, some students looked happy, while some looked very nervous.

Shy boys and reliable girls

I found an interesting thing. The usually noisy boys were acting quite shy, and the otherwise quiet girls were speaking English louder than usual.
Surprisingly, one of mischievous boys passed the quiz even though he always failed in the past. He must have studied hard before the lesson so that he could make his mother proud. I was glad that he did well but at the same time, I recognized that I’m just no match to their mothers.

We did a good job, didn’t we!?

Speaking of me, I did my best. And I heard most mothers were satisfied with my lesson. With the parents around, my students did a lot better. They read louder and pay more attention in class. It was a wonderful experience for us.
We did a good job, didn’t we!?

授業参観かぁ。
塾でもそういうの、あるんだね。
nako先生も緊張気味で、子供たちから見たら、面白かったんじゃない?
授業参観の時の子供って、家での態度が出るのかしら?
やんちゃな子も、家では真面目にしてるとか???
きっと、教室では真面目にしなさいって、いつも言われてるんだろうね。

いつも成績よろしくないのに参観日に合格点をとった子にはびっくりしちゃった。
本当にお母さんには敵わない。

子供達と英文暗唱するのはいい光景だけれど、こっちの息が続かなかったりするので大変なのだ。
ゼー、ハァー
