On Saturday, one of the Elementary Schools I teach at was having their annual Undokai. Undoai is kind of like field day, but all of the parents and grandparents come and watch, and it's an all day event.

I teach at least once a week at the school, and a bunch of the students are in my classes at the English school (after-school classes), so I got to see a lot of my students outside of class, which was a lot of fun!

The school kind of looks like a castle to me.

There are 2 teams - red and white. Look at those cute hats!

A fun time was had by all! And it was so encouraging to interact with students and some Japanese friends outside of school!

Hi! I just saw that you entered my giveaway and you are in Japan! excellent, I love connecting with other expats, teachers, people in Japan. I'll bookmark your blog.

My son, Biggie (Noah) is a second grader in Elementary school. We've been through undokai at kindy and once at school - it is fun but the training at kindy was grueling. This year his school is being renovated so we miss out, I'm a bit disappointed - the kids love it!

Keep in touch - and good luck in my giveaway! thanks for entering
