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

Learn Japanese With Jokes - sample

Learn Japanese With Jokes - sample is a sample of the full book, Learn Japanese With Jokes. In the sample there are ten jokes in Japanese together with vocabulary support and English translations. There are lots of different ways you can use them in class: As revision to illustrate a grammar point. Matching exercise - can they match the Japanese jokes with the English translations? Reading practice - short reading in Japanese and they are rewarded with a laugh if they understand it. Shouting dictations. Jigsaw text (cut up a joke line by line, can your pupils put it back together?) As a reward for good work/behaviour. The book has proved very popular with lots of teachers (and pupils). Why not give it a try?
