We started the series of Hiragana Booklet to build up the students’ Japanese letter recognition as well as vocabulary.

あ “a” : あひる”a hi ru” (duck)、あくび “a ku bi” (yawn)

い “i”:   いぬ “i nu” (dog)、いし “i she” (stone)

う “u”: うさぎ “u sa gi” (rabbit)、うま “u ma” (horse)

え “e”: えび “e bi” (shrimp)、えのぐ “e no gu” (paint)

お “o”:  おおかみ “o o ka mi” (wolf)、おやつ “o ya tsu” (snack)

Please use this video to practice listening read aloud at home. It is perfectly fine for you to simply listen to this video. The students will improve their listening skills through watching this video multiple times at home. You and your child may also read along with me by repeating, which will help them to improve their oral language. Thank you!
