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.

A)   Listening

B)   Reading

C)   Speaking

D)   Writing


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.

About charleswinstead

having lived in japan for 3.5 years i wish to "go back to the island" as often as i can. i lived from 1999-2003. i went back in 2007, then again in 2011. i am a full time teacher, so the best time to go for me is during the summer vacation. it works out well because i love the sensational feelings i get in japan during the summer...especially playing taiko and eating lots of ma-cha ice.
