My kids get cute erasers every time they go to the dentist-- that's an eraser in the photo at left. Came in a pack of erasers I found at the snacks-n-stationery shop at our Daiei.
|Please bring color pencils, tape, and stapler by Friday!|
What do you think belongs in the pack of "Going to School"?
Well, the scissors, of course. And the pencil sharpener (the handle turns around:-)) The tape and stapler (yes, they have to take those things to school--mostly for art. They are kept in the students' desks). So far, roughly the same, I think.
|All outdoor shoes go in the shoe boxes by the entrance-- heaven help anyone who walks into school with, *mercy!*, Outside Shoes on!|
So what are these last two?... Note that they are not in proportion to one another...
|These are important!|
And that other thing? It's actually close to actual size--you would see one dangling from the side of a child's Landosel. That's the All-Important O-Mamori (mamoru-- vt, to protect). A protective charm--usually to do with traffic safety, or traveling safety, although the one above says "accomplish goal"--clearly an academic charm:-) It's the thing that made me smile when I looked at the pack of erasers--at what they think is included in the Set of Things You Take To School. Of course you have to have an O-Mamori--who in the world would go to school without one? ;-)
