Dog Training Trouble HIRAGANA ONLY VERSION
This poor dog trainer is trying to show off his skills. Unfortunately, he has some very cheeky dogs in his class. Will they learn to follow any of his instructions?
Dog Training Trouble introduces basic polite Japanese classroom instructions and examples of language to use when frustrated.
Students learn/ consolidate classroom commands by following the story of some unruly dogs in a dog training school.
Classroom Commands; みて ください, すわって ください, きて ください, やめて ください, きいて ください, はなして ください, もどって きて ください
With free access to bilingual and Japanese-only audio books and hiragana chart bookmark, this picture book has been written for primary aged beginners of Japanese, (ideally Year 3 and 4 Strand of the Australian Curriculum but can also be used for Year 5 and 6).
Each colourful page is presented in hiragana only until the end of the story. Once the story is complete, there are easily identifiable white pages with the English meaning, clearly linked to the matching kanji page number, so that children are able to refer to this page when they are unsure of meaning as they go.
The book is generously sized at 20.6cm by 20.6 cm making it easy to hold and images and words clear and easy to see. Printed locally in Australia on quality paper, this book has been made to last in a classroom, library or home with long term use in mind.
