Product Description
Wanting some ひらがな Cards with a difference for your students?

This printable ひらがな Card Set feature shape backgrounds aligned to the specified vowel sounds. This resource has the ability to meet different student ability levels, whilst they are learning to recognise the script. In particular, these cards have an engaging design feature that can benefit supporting students with special needs or learning difficulties to become familiar with basic features of ひらがな.

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. Can also be highly useful when teaching combination hiragana that rely on the い line with small ゃゅょ, as the shapes behind the hiragana symbols can prompt students with special learning needs to identify a smaller range of symbols or a targeted sound line in deciding which symbols to put together.

Extra cards with some basic ひらがな sound conventions with ten ten/maru and rules for little つやゆよ are also included, so that students can use in conjunction with their cards.
