I used these stories to teach my students Hiragana. This way, students have an easy way to remember them. I used them the most to signal a character when students didn't remember a character. For example, if the student didn't remember the "a" character, I would say, "remember? 'Ah! I caught a fish'. When telling your students the stories, you have to tell them that the stories are horribly cheesy. For a preview, search for 'A and Ka Line Stories'.
