Class Experience

Students will practice motor skills by shaping a rice ball.
Students will be more aware of their food by making choices and incorporating them into their rice ball.
I am a proficient Japanese speaker, and I lived in Japan for many years. One of my favorite parts of living in Japan was eating Japanese food every day, and learning how to make it at home. Japan is known for cute things, as well as simple yet beautiful food. Therefore, in addition to guiding sensory play I am able to share a bit of Japanese culture with learners.

I encourage personal expression from students. That is why I let them choose their own ingredients. I also teach with upbeat energy, which makes the lesson fun for kids!
Bowl with cold water Plastic wrap - optional cooked rice your preferred ingredients, chopped finely. Examples include fish, minced meat, egg, seaweed, sesame seeds, pickled ginger, or minced vegetables.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
-Please have cooked rice available before the lesson. Rinse the rice before cooking it to make the rice more sticky.
-Students will be picking up rice with their hands, so please make sure the rice is cooled down!
-Parents may need to prepare their child's preferred ingredients ahead of time (i.e. chop vegetables, open a can of tuna)
