hv99welcomeClassroom Tip

After the Hello Song, use this Storytime video to introduce the Happy Valley 1 Unit 1 characters and target language. Show students the page in the book and point to the characters. Say I’m (your name). Hello. as if you were speaking to the characters. Act puzzled that they aren’t responding. Then, pretend you have an idea and show the paused video. Press play and encourage the students to listen and watch with you. At the end, remember to introduce yourself and say Hello again. By the 3rd or 4th lesson, if students are up to trying, have them say their names and Hello. Remember to have students find and count the 1 grey target, too!



Hello Songの後に、このストーリータイム動画でハッピーバレー1ユニット1のボキャブラリーとターゲットランゲージを紹介します。スチューデントブックのページを見せて、キャラクターを指さします。I’m (name). Helloとキャラクターに話しかけるように言いましょう。そうすると、返事が返ってこないことを不思議がりますので、ひらめいたふりをして、一旦停止しておいた動画を再生して、生徒と一緒にみて聴きます。最後に自己紹介をしてもう一度Helloと言います。3回目または4回目のレッスンになったら、生徒にも名前とHelloを言うことに挑戦させましょう。グレーのターゲットを1つ探すのも忘れずに!

Built in 1878, the St. Patrick’s Cathedral is located in Manhattan, New York City. Today it takes up a whole city block between Madison and Fifth Avenue, and has 19 bells. The stained glass windows were made by American and European artists. An organ with 7,855 pipes took three years to build in the 1920s. The organs were restored in the 1990s and now have over 9,000 pipes.

When you’re bored of studying, try taking a cold shower. It will make you feel more awake! And some studies suggest it will make you more think more positively and engage better with the material you’re studying. How does that work? The cold water gets your blood flowing and releases endorphins.

The cougar has many names, including “mountain lion”, “puma”, “panther” and “catamount”. It lives in most of the Americas. The biggest cat in North America, it’s more closely related to the housecat than to other big cats. Baby cougars have spots, but they lose them as they grow up.
