Over the Christmas Holiday, we were fortunate enough to work with Genki Kids in Toyosu. We organized a mini-English Performing Arts Day for all of the kids!
There are a lot of working parents who had to return to work, but a program like Genki Kids is a great alternative to staying at home and watching TV! We had a great time and I really want to thank Genki Kids for allowing us to volunteer during the holiday.
We were moving and grooving to Five Little Monkeys! We worked in small groups and created dance steps to accompany the song!
After we finished, we were just about to say good-bye, when Kaito asked if we could sing another song. I was very flattered. Looks like he had a great time, so I pulled out my sweet potato for a quick game of Hot Potato! If you haven’t played Hot Potato, come check us out in February at our Valentine’s Day Party!
The second bit of surprise was from Emi, her English name is Mary. Mary, was quite a delight. She asked heaps of questions about my hair, my country and my height. I guess she was surprised to know that I am pretty short for an old lady.
Our last big thank you goes once again to Genki Kids, the organizers asked us to return in March. Yippee!!! It’s very exciting to be invited back! We are looking forward to more fun with Genki Kids!
