Word Chain Singing Game - ‘Ringo wa Marui’

A great way to learn Japanese words and expressions while having fun!

Inspired by a traditional children’s folk song ‘Iroha ni Konpeito’, this singing game is circular and can be kept going for as long as you like.

This material is good for Japanese language beginners.

Students will learn the following words:

6 nouns (りんご、ボール、こま、ひこうき、ながれぼし、わたがし)
3 verbs (まわる、そらをとぶ、きえる)
2 adjectives(はやい、あまい)

After going through the song together, you can have the students take turns saying each sentence.

As a variation of this activity, and/or for upper level students, you can ask them to make their own song by using the SHIRITORI method of word play. (It will be a 'word Shiritori', not a regular 'letter Shiritori'.) In that case, the song does not need to come back to the initial word like in this version.
