<カナダのクリスマス>
What do you want for Chrismas? "PSP" or "DS"?(HRT)
Kabeer SESNEI will talk about Christmas in Canada. Listen carefully.(HRT)
How do you celebrate Christmas in Canada? Could you talk about that?(HRT)

Chistmas is my favorite holiday. In the days before Christmas we put up many decorations. We put up a big Christmas tree in our house, and we decorate the outside of our houses with Christmas lights. At night time, it is very beautiful to see all the colorfully-lit up houses.

In Canada, elementary school students sing Christmas carols everyday during the month of December. Elementary school students believe that Santa Claus will bring them many presents if they are good, so children happily sing many Christmas songs everyday. Santa Claus is a big, fat jolly man who has a sleigh pulled by reindeer, and it is believed that he gives presents to children all over the world on Christmas Eve.

Children hang Christmas stocking by the fireplace because it is said that Santa will come down the chimney on Christmas Eve to fill the stockings. Small presents and candy go into the stockings, and big presents go under the Christmas tree.

On Christmas morning, children open their presents. Christmas is usually spent with the family. In the evening we have a special Christmas dinner. In Canada we usually eat Turkey or Christmas ham. We also eat stuffing, mashed potatoes, fruitcake, Christmas cookies. And we drink egg nog.

Also, before Christmas we send out Christmas cards to our family and friends. The cards usually say Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, or Season's Greeting.

In my house, we believe that Christmas in Jesus Christ's birthday, and at midnight, on Christmas Eve, my family and I go to church for midnight mass. At church, we all sing Christmas carols and hymns, and we pray.

Do you have any questions?(HRT)

ALTにカナダのクリスマスについて話を聞く。ジェスチャーや実物等を交えて話をしてもらい、子供たちが話の内容を類推しやすい状況をつくる。

一段落毎に子供の理解度を確認していく。

質問は日本語でさせ、HRTが英語で伝える。
ALTの答えの内容はできる限り類推しながら聞くように促す。

15 4 Activity 2(ALT & HRT)
<絵本"Hello, Red Fox"の読み聞かせ>(ALT & HRT)
Do you know this story? This book makes you wonder.
(表紙を見せて)What's this? It's a fox. What color is he? He is a green fox. But the title of this book is "Hello, Red Fox". It makes you wonder. Let's start reading.
読み聞かせ終了後、絵本と同じクリスマスツリーをプリントしたポストカードを子供たちにプレゼントする。
"Hello, Red Fox(Eric Carle)"
絵本では、全ての子供たちが「色の変化」を楽しむことができないので、ポストカード大の絵を準備しておき、配布する。
カエルのパペットを二つ用意しておき、HRTとALTで役割を決めて読み聞かせる(母ガエルと子ガエル)。
10 5 Activity 3(ALT & HRT)
<クリスマスツリーを作ろう>(ALT)
Let's make a paper Christmas tree.
http://www.enchantedlearning.com/crafts/christmas/papertree/
  1. Fold a piece of green construction paper in half, then cut it in half.
  2. Put the two pieces together, and fold them in half again.
  3. Draw half a Christmas tree opposite the fold.
  4. Cut along the line - you should get two identical trees.
    Fold the trees in half, just barely creasing the center line.
  5. Cut a slit along the bottom half of the center of one tree and along the top half of the center of the other tree.
  6. Slip the two trees together along the slits.
    Using clear tape, tape the bottoms and tops together.
  7. Decorate your tree with colored pencils. Or you can glue on tiny construction paper decorations.
左のWebサイトを参考に行う。作り方が図入りで詳細に示されている(英語)。ALTには、1ステップずつ実際にやって見せながら、説明してもらう。
ALTの説明が難しいところは、HRTがサポートする(できる限り英語で)。
