In the dogs days of summer, in August, in Japan, it’s fairly traditional to send a summer greeting. These days, they may send one by “e” but by hand, of course, is better.

The 3rd – 5th graders began their “Matsuri” class with creating a “Shochuumimai” on fabric. They drew their cooling summer images, then added their greeting in hiragana. That part involved a quick lesson in hiragana and I thought they learned their lesson well.
