With our world travels taking us to Japan, I am excited because we will be “rowing” some Five in a Row titles that I have been looking forward to: A Pair of Red Clogs, Grandfather’s Journey and Grass Sandals.
*This page has lots of Japan resources — scroll down and there are 2 videos that show counting in Japanese and Introduction to Japanese language.
*Crayola has a printable kimono paper doll to color and cut out
*DLTK has quite a few Japan ideas as well
*Free Japan Lapbook! (some great lapbooking pieces!)
*See your name in Japanese (I printed these for our notebooks too!)
*We will briefly discuss WW2 and Pearl Harbor. I will show the kids my pictures from when I was in Hawaii at Pearl Harbor. I also purchased a few kids books and items at Pearl Harbor, so we will be able to use those this week as well.
