Japanese 1 Week 4

Lesson 3

...✿... ようこそ! ...✿...

News for Students/Parents/Guardians/ELA's:

This week in Japanese 1 (week 4), we will be starting lesson 3. ^o^ Last week we had started language coaching! Remember that students are required to attend coaching sessions during their scheduled time. It's 20% of their grade. Coaching sessions are twice a week for 45 minutes per session. Students are required to make up any missed sessions. Many of the students did an AWESOME job attending both coaching sessions! (◕‿◕✿)

This week in lesson 3: we are learning the next 10 ひらがな (Hiragana) characters which will consist of "な (na), に (ni), ぬ (nu), ね (ne), の (no), は (ha), ひ (hi), ふ (fu), へ (he), ほ (ho)". Lesson 3 is also about classroom objects, as well as learn about the difference between Japanese and American schools. There will be assignments that will be due for this lesson. These assignments needs to be submitted by the due date listed on the calendar. (✿◠‿◠)

Parents/Guardians/ELA's: Grades will be submitted to the schools on Tuesday for their first progress report. Please be on the look out for that. If you would like a copy of the progress report, please email me with the student's FIRST name initial, and full LAST name. :) I'll do my best to get that to you as soon as possible.
