All of the Takara Bako cards provide a range of comprehension tasks from a variety of focus topics such as things about me, school life, daily routine, weather and seasons, and subjects and timetables. Students can work at their own pace and access Takara Bako cards in their own time.
There are a range of different cards for students to access with a variety of reading texts on one side and helpful hints for vocabulary and grammar on the back. Cards also use furigana for katakana words. The back of each card also has additional task work for student extension. Takara Bako text types include short passages, letters, dialogues, advertisements and many more. Students have a task record sheet to keep track of their progress through the Takara Bako cards. Takara Bako has a set of answer cards for students to self assess their progress.Takara Bako cards can be used in the classroom in a variety of ways. Teachers may choose to use Takara Bako cards as extension activities for students. They may also use the cards in differentiated learning plans with students individually, in pairs or in small groups. Teachers can arrange a self access environment to allow students to choose their cards and work at their own pace on topics of choice.
