妖怪・Yōkai

This week, in the classroom, it has been all about Yōkai, goblins, demons and other things that go bump in the night.  The kids brought in posters and stories to share. Those who actually did their assignments were in high spirits. Me too.  I’ve been looking forward to this for awhile as each student had signed up to research one yokai each.  I also let them do it in English this time thinking that it would encourage the ones who’ve been holding back.  In the end, just over half the class actually came through.  The rest of them passed on it, but this has been their behavior all year. I wasn’t the only one who was disappointed.  We persevered though, and there were some enthusiastic storytellers. Tomorrow, I’m showing Lafcadio Hearn’s Kwaidan to continue with the ghostly theme.

In my other life, I’ve continued to prep for market and am nearly done with those preparations, at least as far as I can take it this year.  Tomorrow I set up.
