4 class hours are recommended for Hi, friends! 1 Lesson 5 by MEXT - here's the official MEXT lesson plans pdf download (Japanese).

Similar to lesson 4, vocabulary is things we can say we like, such as colors, animals, etc, with the addition of the category word itself (eg. "color").

Lesson 5 grammar is asking and answering questions like "What (color) do you like?"

Goals

Activities

For review:

For practicing new vocabulary:

  • Using the Collecting "Me too's" game linked to above, you can first practice saying colors then do the Collecting game as review and a way to use today's new vocabulary.
  • To have students repeating the colors (just to get used to saying them) - the keyword game (a.k.a. the eraser game)
    Students pair up with a single eraser between them. Select a key word. Call out vocabulary words and students repeat. When you say the keyword, students quickly snatch the eraser.
  • Let's Listen 1 (Hi, friends! 1 Lesson 5, page 19)
    Students listen to descriptions of t-shirts and guess which number.
  • Let's Chant (Hi, friends! 2 Lesson 5, page 20)

Goals

  • Review Lesson 5 vocabulary
  • Answer the question "What color do you like?"
  • Ask friends about what they like

Activities

To review vocabulary:

  • Keyword game
    Students make pairs and put an eraser in the middle. They repeat after you (vocabulary) until you say the keyword, then they try to be the one to get the eraser.
  • Don't stop talking challenge

To answer "What color do you like?":

  • Teacher talk (a.k.a. Skit)
    In front of the students, in your stage voice, ask the HRT "What color do you like?" (or fruit, food, animal, etc) Then the HRT asks you the same. Then the HRT (in Japanese) can ask the students what you were talking about. Then you can ask some students.
  • Stereo Game
    Three students stand in front of the class ready to say the color they like (predetermined and all different). The class asks and the three students reply synchronously "I like ~!" The class has to determine who said what.

Goals

  • Ask and answer "What color do you like?"

Activities

To review lesson 3

  • Talk to students
    Ask students to count things in the classroom - "How many chairs?"
  • How many fingers game

To ask "What color do you like?"

  • Student's favorite t-shirt quiz (Using Hi, friends! 1 page 18 - 19)
    Start with the HRT. Ask HRT: "What color do you like?" Ask HRT: "What shape do you like?" Ask students: "What number t-shirt?" Next, one student takes place of the HRT and all students ask with you.
  • Make a t-shirt - Let's Play (Hi, friends! 1 Lesson 5, page 20)
    Demonstrate with the Hi, friends! software with either the HRT asking the class or the class asking the HRT and you putting their answers into the computer. Hand out A4 photocopies of a t-shirt outline (I like to use recycle paper a.k.a. scrap paper - A4 sheets that are printed on one side already), students get out their color pencils and use the dialogue to draw a t-shirt design for their friend.
    "What shape do you like?"
    "What color do you like?"
    "How many red stars?"

Lesson 5 Class 4

Goals

  • Review Lesson 5
  • Use "What color do you like?" to ask friends about different things they like.

Activities

To review lesson 5:

  • T-shirt quiz
    One student selects a t-shirt they like from page 18-19. The class asks that student questions to determine what number t-shirt. Once students are confident doing it as a class, you can set them to doing it in groups of 5 or so.
    "What color do you like?
    "What shape do you like?
    "How many triangles?
  • Let's Chant (Hi, friends! 1 Lesson 5, page 20)

To ask friends about what they like:

  • Activity (Hi, friends! 1 Lesson 5, page 21)
    Students walk around talking to their fellow classmates asking what color, pet and something else their classmates like. Use the survey worksheet from page 21.
    Before starting, get suggestions for the something else students can ask about. Put all reasonable suggestions up on the blackboard for students to choose from.
    For each suggestion, have the class ask the HRT or you to practice. Other options might include:
    • sport
    • flower
    • season
    • manga
    • character
    • etc
  • "What        do you like?" quiz
    After students have completed the questionnaire described above (or a similar worksheet you have created), you collect all the textbooks/worksheets and introduce yourself as on of the students, using the answers they have given. Students guess who you are. You can have the class all asking that student "What color do you like?" questions at the end to confirm.
