Currently, the Grade 8 students taking Japanese as a Native Language are researching Japanese proverbs and blogging about the history of the proverb they chose.
In the Japanese classes in Elementary, I am exploring Voicethread with the Grade 1, 3, and 4 students. Each of these classes have or will record their voices to their respective Voicethreads: Grade 1, Grade 3, Grade 4.
In the last few months we had the honor to meet Horii-sensei from Nishimachi International School and Hakone-sensei from American School in Japan. We shared Japanese class materials and how technology is used in each of our schools and hoping that this type of collaboration and sharing sessions could take place on a regular basis.
