Japanese September Blog

Hello I am Shoko Matsuya and I am Japanese teacher at HJIS.
I am pleased to be a Japanese teacher for G6 in this academic year.
Let’s have a great year together!

JNL(Kokugo group)
Firstly, we made a story by telling one sentence each person “Tsunaide tsunaide hitotsu no ohanasi” as a warm up for the class.
We read the poem” Shitaku” and got emotionally prepared for G6.
After that we read “Curry rice” and thought about character’s feelings and identify themselves to with characters. And then we wrote comment and shared our feelings and thoughts with classmates. Almost all students have had a same feeling with Hiroshi who could not apologies to his father and they said they can understood his feeling. But some students said Hiroshi should apologies for his father because they feel sorry for him. Thank you very much for your support for reading homework. We could read this story deeply by reading over it.
