Japanese Lessons 11-15…
“Let the Fun Times Begin”
Focus/review: Students will review for test by going over the greetings, countries, and hobbies with each other
Students will take the test by playing a board game
Using a simple twisted circle, when students land on a certain color they give the correct answer based on the English. Also the alphabet will be put in as one landed color to review for mastery.
Teacher Input: Teacher has pre-set stations for people to go to before the class.
Teacher goes over the objectives of each of the learning stations. Teacher explains the necessity to be on-task at all times because at the end of the week s/he will be giving a test based on the vocabulary learned. If a conversation is needed, the partner and s/he will work together with the teacher, but if it is simple vocabulary, students will take test individually.
Example: partners may choose one of the following topics, but not limited to: colors, numbers and counters, borrowed words, prefectures, adjectives, nouns, verbs, Japanese holidays
Guided Practice: Teacher will act as moderator and monitor to make sure students are on task with occasional check of journals, activity sheets, or any other student-created work (for example, students may make a video, prezi, glogster, power point, etc).
Independent Practice: Teacher will give assessments and grade based on student chosen topics.
