 Hi Friends! Book 1 Lesson 8                                                                                                                                        
                                   I STUDY JAPANESE

Up to this point in the Eigo Noto, students’ interests in other cultures/customs hopefully have been broadening.  To further widen their interests, the students will study school subjects that are taught at elementary schools all around the world [a.k.a. China, Japan and Australia]. Students will study the School Subjects and Days of the Week in order to make a school schedule. They will then present their own school schedules as practice to the lesson’s timetable listening quiz.

 

Beyond the goals already listed above, students will be asked to think about and explain (in Japanese) why they made their schedules the way they did.  The idea behind this is to have students engage in clear communication by vocally communicating to others their thought processes.


                                                  時間割を作ろう

児童はこれまでの学習を通して、英語の聞いたり話したりすることに慣れ親しんできたとともに、日本と世界との様々な習慣や文化に興味や関心を広げてきた。本単元では、さらに世界への興味や関心を広げるために、身近な話題として世界の小学校で学習されている教科を取り上げる。その際、教科書や時間割を活用しながら活動を進める。また、ここでは児童の学習負担を考慮して、教科名と曜日のみを扱うこととする。

 

本単元の最後にはグループで作った時間割を発表させる。発表は聞き手が発表内容を聞き取って、どの時間割かをあってるといったクイズ形式を取る。教科名を英語で言うだけでなく、なぜそのような時間割を作ったのか簡潔な日本語で説明させる根拠を示すことの大切さに気付かせたい。

           Lesson 8 Specific Activities                                    

Character Guess: Students try to guess what character their partner is by using `Do you..?` questions. Look in the Variation section for the ES variation.

 

Concentration: A listening activity putting the subjects with the right days in the right order.

 

Discovery Chance: Students (in two person teams) take their chances to discover their opponents’ hidden spots while they’re using the appropriate target language of the day (I normally play this game with kids to teach them days of the week).

 

I study English: Students will use trading cards to give their classmates three hint quizzes using "I study ~." Students who guess correctly get the card from their classmate.


Let's Study Dance: Students learn the similarities and differences between Japanese schools and Western schools. Students study comparisons of subjects studied, classroom set-up, and special activities.

 

Memory Round: Students listen to the subjects their classmates like to study and memorize.

 

Schedule Gap: Each student has a schedule with missing subjects. They have to ask their classmate to find out what they are missing.

 

Schedule Tic-Tac-Toe: Using the classic game, kids practice school subjects, and days of the week in the context of a sentence. 

 

Squares: In this strategy game, students draw lines to try and complete a square. This game was designed for JHS, but Jacob's attachments are designed for Hi Friends
