So you want to do the pizza game or this one?

So we are going to do a very short one.
Ben, can you sit there first and Anri can you move back a little?
Charlie: Ben, sit facing me.
Olivia: In the middle will put this one.
Don’t touch please.
Charlie: So who is going first?
Olivia: No, it’s not going first. It’s a race. It’s a math race.
Olivia: This is 1 1/2 and this is… I don’t know. And you match. But you need to use three colours to match. When you have this. You can match like this.
Ben, are you listening?
So we have three colours. You have to make a circle with three colours. And whoever builds first is the winner. And I’ll give you a small prize.
Do it on the floor, but don’t do it the same as mine.
Irfan: Good morning, everyone. Today is my Show & Tell. I have a simple game, but I'll show you first.
This is how you play.
Irfan: Now we will play a game. I will choose Kou and Olivia.
Do you want the first game or the second?
Olivia: The first.
Irfan: The first? Okay, who wants to start?
You have to remember the points and add them.
Irfan: Now, we will stop.
The next game is if it is like a circle, rectangle, then you have to do the same.
Do you want to do this one?
Charlie: Yes. So you also have to do the correct colour, right?
Irfan: Yes. Okay. Now Charlie. Any questions?
Kou: Hello everyone.
Today, I brought playing cards.
1) Firstly, divide them into red and black.
This game is for one to one.
One person has red and another one has black.
2) We say "1, 2, 3". When we say "3", take 1 card and put it on the desk.
3) We calculate the two cards.
You can do addition, subtraction (bigger number minus smaller number) or multiplication.
4) Play until you finish the cards in your hand.
Do like this and you can do it.
Okay, Hyuga and Olivia. Do this or this? This one is a new one and this one is an old one.
Do you want the back or the front? The back? Okay.
You can’t see.
You see? Do like this, okay?
Yuuki: Shuffle. You do shuffle.
Kou: What’s 6 plus 10?
Justin: Today I have a video to show all of you. In this video, I had a tea party with mommy and my friends. Please play the video, Ms Leah.
On a recent trip to Bali, Maria and her brother noticed that there was a lot of garbage on the beach. They decided to take action and clean it up.
Today Anri's mom and little brother came to school to talk to us about how babies change over time.
Asami: This picture I took on Astuhito's birthday, May 30, 2016, in the hospital.
He is 1 year old and 8 months.
He was 2.070 grams when he was born. Now he is 10 kilograms.
He was breastfeeding mother's milk. He would always eat, sleep or cry.
Asami: This is one month after he was born. In Japan, after 1 month, we go to the shrine and take a picture.
He would sleep about 3 hours at a time, wake up, eat and sleep again.
Asami: This is the 7 month old picture. He could not stand up yet. He could only crawl. He is laughing. He just started talking, baby talking.
He ate porridge then and he played with his baby photos.
Ray: He can walk now.
Charlie: How old is he now?
Asami: 1 year and 3 months.
Charlie: And he can eat now.
Asami: He can eat everything, just not spicy foods.
Now he can watch TV and sing songs.
He loves 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar'.
He can play the piano.
Ms Leah: How will he change in the next year or so?
Asami: Maybe in the next year he will talk more. Right now he can use single words. Maybe in one year he will use short phrases.
Maybe he will be able to run or go upstairs.
Yuuki: Why do babies eat everything?
Asami: Maybe he is testing everything, like the texture, whether it is hard or soft. He tests it through his mouth.
