Introductory activities, puzzles and ひらがな script development in a variety of engaging BLMs that present ひらがな in stand-alone activities or applied to intercultural contextual situations. A great way to complement exisiting practices for teaching ひらがな with your students.
Wanting some ひらがな Cards with a difference for your students? Included in this BLM is a printable ひらがな Card Set featuring shape backgrounds aligned to the specified vowel sounds. This resource would suit supporting students with special needs or learning difficulties whilst they are learning to recognise the script. Utilising a special education pedagogy of "strategy instruction" to generalise new knowledge, a student learning their ひらがな begins to recognise the phonetic and phonemic rhyming CV sound patterns, in conjunction with the existing mnemonic stories that Japanese teachers often use to teach ひらがな. The shapes behind the hiragana symbols look engaging and creative, whilst reinforcing the specific sound patterns each symbol belongs to. Could be highly useful when going to teach combination hiragana that rely on the い line with small ゃゅょ.
