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.

Visual literacy in Japanese language poster

Visual literacy in Japanese language poster

Teaching visual literacy is everyone's responsibility! This poster was designed as part of a cross-curriculum promotional campaign to teach staff in all faculties in a New England NSW high school about visual literacy being a component of literacy in every area of the curriculum and also to provide students with an example of how a visual image can be deconstructed to find the hidden messages. This poster is an example of how the techniques of visual literacy can be used in Japanese language classes. It applies an excellent template developed by the English Teacher's Association of NSW to a tourist magazine cover.

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.
