When Nameri takes a day off

As I have mentioned before, my mascot is a banana slug (magnet) that my students have named Nameri. Truth is that I simply forgot to bring her, but I told students that she caught a cold and couldn’t make it to class.

One of my 5th grade classes felt that it wasn’t English class without Nameri, so they drew this picture on the board.

The blue text says ナメリ欠席 (Nameri kesseki) which means “Nameri is absent.”
The black text says かぜ(kaze) which means “cold” – as in being sick. The other black text says ゴホゴホ(goho goho) which is the Japanese sound effect for coughing.

Glad to know that my mascot is so loved!
