Numbers: Japanese Vocabulary Card Sort

Numbers: Japanese Vocabulary Card Sort

This is a card sort to help students learn words for numbers (30 words in total). This resource covers 1-20 and 30,40,50,60,70,80,90,100,1000,1000000. This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task. - The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched. - The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students. They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks. - The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed. Alternatively you can print the same page twice double-sided to produce flash cards.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Japanese Lyrics)

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Japanese Lyrics)

Every two years, our school puts on a Summer Carnival where each year group gives a performance based around a different country. Last year, Year 3's country was Japan. The children learnt how to sing 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' in Japanese. They also performed a contemporary dance and wore traditional Japanese clothes and accessories. It was a fantastic event and the children loved every minute of it. I have uploaded the lyrics in case you would like to try something similar at your school. This link takes you to the music: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGgOKEaMWZU

Japanese Classroom Expression Pics for Walls or Boards

Japanese Classroom Expression Pics for Walls or Boards

Japanese Classroom Expression Pics (coloured) for Walls or Boards help students speak Japanese in class. This packet includes 16 big coloured pictures of necessary expressions (and the written Japanese expressions associated with them) said by the teacher or student on an everyday basis. The coloured pictures represent our multi-cultural classrooms. Hang them on the wall with the words (I put a colorful construction paper as a background behind each drawing with the sentence or question under it.) or on the bulletin boards. The expressions ( but in Japanese) are: May I borrow a pencil? May I sharpen my pencil? What page are we on? May I go to the nurse’s office? Please write it on the board. May I get a drink of water? Listen please. May I go to the office? I’m sorry. I didn’t do the homework. Please take out a piece of paper. May I throw this away? Please open your books. I don’t understand. Silence please. May I go to the bathroom? May I go to my locker? If you'd prefer other phrases, words,or alphabets, use them! The pictures work your words or mine.

Passport to Japan & its Culture

Passport to Japan & its Culture

Ideally suited to students from Yr 3 upwards, this Multiple Intelligences assignment requires students to complete 8 of 16 tasks over a 10 week term. Teachers will need to download the assignment and print double sided, then fold in half. Select coloured card/heavier paper for the students to create their "passport" - extending them by using kana. Staple in the centre. As each task is completed, a sticker is placed on that page. Suitable Japanese icons/pictures are readily available on the web if the accompanying worksheet of stickers doesn't suit. Some students will seek to do more than the 8 tasks and I would suggest that this be counted as extension work. A marking sheet is also included.

Whizzy loop

Whizzy loop

Use this whizzy loop by pressing the 's' key on your keyboard to start and stop it spinning super fast. You can change the text on the slides quite easily to suit your purposes - there is one here with numbers, one with dates and one with sentences on and several other ideas - at its simplest you can just ask pupils to translate the slide it stops on but you can use it in many, many different ways - put pupil names on it as a name selector, or sentences starters and a connective to build sentences - you choose. I have put several examples on here to help with ideas, but the concept of randomising things is the same throughout. Enjoy! The pupils LOVE coming to press the 's' key.....the simplest of things seem to please them.

The teacher talks about the top picture, such as 'In my picture, I can see two seagulls flying.'... then the students model their responses, using the sentence structure provided by the teacher. There are lots of different ways you could use this pack. You could laminate them into two cards and get each student to talk about what they had seen in their picture. ***** Please note - these resources provide visual prompts and support to the students, not direct language instruction **************
