So as my last post showed we’ve been studying letters and making a craft for each letter. We reached P and I didn’t like a lot of the other crafts out there. P is for pirate is cool but a bit lost on my Korean students. P is for Parrot, but I couldn’t get that many feathers in time. Pig and puzzle just bore me so what could really WOW my kids… and me…
Pikachu! Something they all know, love, and idolize! P is for Perfect! Well I know it says Pokemon, that’s a little mistake on my part printing out Pokemon instead of Pikachu, but I didn’t want to waste anymore paper and reprint the whole thing. Besides the only words my class can read is: I, a, can, is and, you.
No tutorials for P is for Pikachu so here is how I made mine.
First off, for those of you that live without Pokémon , Pikachu is a rodent like Pokémon that is the main mascot for the Pokémon franchise and also one of the main representative of Nintendo’s cast of characters.
Glue this to some thin cardboard (like a cereal box) and cut out for a reusable template. I also did the same with the tail and ear. I free handed both the tail and ear so sorry for no links for those. I guess you could find a picture of Pikachu and use those as a template.
I used a 1 inch hole punch for the red cheek circles and black eye circles. Just used a regular hole punch for the whites of the eyes.
Color ears and tail and add a sideways 3 for a mouth. Now you have a fun way to teach P!
Here are some of my kids and their Pikachu!
Had a fun day with our pre-elementary students. I was tasked to come up with some games that would be fun, but not rile the kids up too much so they could study during their second class. So I came up with some carnival games, ya know the usual: GO fish, ring toss, bean bag toss, duck-o-war, and a photo booth.
The 7 year olds had fun but it seemed lost on some of the 6 year olds. Oh well can’t please everyone. There are tons of great websites that give tips to run a carnival for schools or for birthday parties.
Martha Stewart has some great ideas HERE
Catch My Party has a long list of great examples of a circus or carnival themed party HERE

I couldn’t find signs that I like that were free, so I made my own. Here are some FREE PRINTABLES for the signs I made (for personal use only of course) ENJOY!
Here are some of the highlights of our mini carnival:
Some pictures from this March! Enjoy!
Here are some of the highlights from this past month! Hope you enjoy!
For Christmas, Chad got me an iPod Touch. He’s a good boyfriend! (For the record I got him an iPod Touch too.) I love the camera and different apps that enhance photos. My favorites so far have been: Vintage Camera, Diptic, and Instagram. If you have any suggest on other apps, please let me know!
Haven’t posted since Pepero Day! Had a little photography over-load when my mom was visiting. Dusted off the trust camera and took some picture during Christmas. Here are some highlights:
Halloween in Seoul has been more… uh… celebrated this year than last, which makes me super happy. I say that because Halloween things are more available this year and there are more costume shops and Baskin-Robbins and Dunkin’ Donuts have been doing Halloween foods! I found the most amazing ice cream that taste like a pumpkin pie. I think Halloween is my favorite holiday, it’s all about dressing up and getting candy, two of my favorite things.
Here’s my costume this year, Chad was a Pokémon Trainer and I was a pikachu.
