Thank you teacher!

My 6-year-old son practises calculation every day at elementary school.

His teacher gives handout of calculation (addition and subtraction), writing Kanji, and so on every day.

Students do it and hand in it to the teacher then she scores it and returns it to them.

My son often scribbles on the back of the paper.

I was impressed to see the handout he brought yesterday.


This is a math handout.

He drew "Jibanyan" which is a popular character of a ghost cat from a famous children's anime called "Youkai Watch".

His teacher stamped praises like "OK", "Cool!","Good job" on it.

She checked student's handout very well and she was not only giving scores but also praising even his scribble.


I have heard from my son before that his teacher put his drawing on the wall of the classroom.

He told me,

"Look at this! My drawing of a dinosaur has been displayed in my class!"


She mounted his drawing on the green paper and wrote her impressions to it under his drawing.

It is written, like that,

"Scribble gallery corner (Oct, 2) ", " I can see how thick the dinosaur is from his picture. It is also well-drawn the thickness of its tail and what it looks like  inside mouth in detail."

"Why? Maybe your teacher found that you were drawing and suggested to display it?"

"Yeah."

"Good for you! You must be proud!"

He smiled happily but felt shy.

She also put the shiny sticker which children must be glad to see.

I think it shows great considerations!

I am grateful to his teacher for finding his favorite activity and praising his work.

As a result, it made him like it more.

It is very worthwhile for children to be praised by someone aside from their parents.

  1. Another great article Kumi-san.

    Some very small things that I noticed:

    This line:

    His teacher gives handout of calculation (addition and subtraction), writing Kanji, and so on.

    Would sound more natural as:

    His teacher gave a handout on calculation (addition and subtraction), writing Kanji, and so on.

    This line:

    My son often draws a scribble on the back of the paper.

    Could probably be rewritten as:

    My son often scribbles on the back of the paper.

    Reason: redunadancy you already said he scribbles and so draws scribbles seems a little uneeded.

    This line:

    He drew "Jibanyan" which is a popular character of a ghost cat in children's famous anime called "Youkai Watch".

    Would sound more natural as:

    This line:

    She checked student's handout well and she was not only giving scores but also praising even his scribble.

    Would sound more natural as:

    She checked the student's handouts (very well/thoroughly), she was not only giving scores but also praising even his scribbles.

    This line:

    "Look at this! My drawing of a dinosaur had been displayed in my class!"

    Should probably be (assuming it is not a word for word quote from your son):

    "Look at this! My drawing of a dinosaur has been displayed in my class!"

    This line:

    She mounted his drawing on the green paper and wrote her impression to it under his drawing.

    Would sound more natural as:

    She mounted his drawing on the green paper and wrote her impressions of it under his drawing.

    This line (again assuming it is not a word for word direct quote from his teacher):

    "Scribble gallery corner (Oct, 2) ", " I can see how thick the dinosaur is from his picture. It is also well-drawn the thickness of its tail and how is inside mouth in detail."

    Would be better written as:

    "Scribble gallery corner (Oct, 2) ", " I can see how thick the dinosaur is from his picture. It is also well-drawn the thickness of its tail and what it looks like inside the mouth in detail."

    This line:

    She also put the shining sticker which children must be glad to see.

    Would sound more natural as:

    This line:

    I think it is an exquisite consideration!

    1. Hello Terry.

      Thank you for pointing out my errors!
      Since they are so difficult for me to notice, very helpful.

      But this suggestion below was a little different from what I want to say,

      This line:

      His teacher gives handout of calculation (addition and subtraction), writing Kanji, and so on.

      Would sound more natural as:

      His teacher gave a handout on calculation (addition and subtraction), writing Kanji, and so on.


      I corrected this line like this,

      His teacher gives handout of calculation (addition and subtraction), writing Kanji, and so on every day.

      She gives them homework not only that day but also every day, so I made it clear.

      I am always grateful to your help.
      Thank you so much!
