12 Month Homework Calendar
To keep students (and parents!) on track with the Homework Program
A4 Flashcards & Minicards
As there are so many of these, the best way to get the A4 cards and Minicards is to choose the lesson you wish to teach from the curriculum and print from there.
( Ninja Tip: Don’t print them all out at once, print them as you need them. Very often you’ll find yourself using the computer more and more and not needing as many flashcards!)

Or you can download the pdf versions below!
Ninja Tip: We call these “picture books” as the kids can’t read them yet. Use the narrations in the software or read them yourself and the kids will understand. And of course when the kids start interrupting and chatting and laughing and asking questions, go with these “teachable moments” 🙂
These worksheets work with the writing programme or as homework for pre-literate students.

Bonus VIP Card Games
Just like its more famous cousin “Uno”, this is a card game based on the traditional Crazy Eights game.
We have several versions available for you here, the classic “numbers + colours” version, a “family + vegetables” version and a prepositions version. This is the really cool part about the game, once you’ve taught each theme separately it’s great at linking them together to make longer sentences.
|Colours & Numbers||School subjects & days||Prepositions|
|Weather & Countries||Personal pronouns (he, she,
they, we, I, you) & Stationery
|Clothes & Colours|
|Christmas Prepositions||Family & Vegetables||Colours & Shapes|
|Colours & Fruits|| Halloween Monsters &
| Haunted House
e.g. Skeleton is in the kitchen.
Here are the instructions on how to play … and here are the cards.

Wow this is fantastic! Now would this link be somewhere on the webpage so that I wouldn’t have to do a search to find this blog post?
Just an aside…
I had my meeting with the elementary school teachers and it went rather well. I had been worried that once teachers were used to teaching with the books offered by the Ministry of Education in Japan, it would be harder to get them to try GE. I found it to be the opposite. I pushed that the books Hi, Friends! is lacking in repetition, thus the kids forget what they learned in previous lessons. I stressed GE and said how the materials really help students retain the language.
What I found was that the ones nodding their heads were the ones who had used Hi, Friends! They saw what wasn’t working and could appreciate what does! I haven’t been this hopeful in a long time. This year looks to be a good year!!!
Really great! Thank you!
go under “help”~ here you can find everything.
I agree with your observation. When I did the teachers workshop at a school where teachers had depended on “Hi Friends” I had them do a lesson on different topics on day two, with either GE or HF There were actually several teachers who chose “Hi Friends” but only to underline the difference and show how bad it is compared to GE.
On the other hand though I have met several teachers who would not go for GE even though they know how good it is. These are all those teachers who are really really good; good in speaking English, good in creating a good classroom, ~so I guess to them it doesn’t matter what material they have, and their rule is: We teach what MEXT tells us to, as this is our job!
It also seems to be some kind of protection in case there are complaints from parents. If they use MEXT materials they can always refer to this and the responsibility is not theirs.
Oh well, maybe we should write a book on this some day. Let’s keep the spirits high; I do agree: this is a very special year, having started very positive. Let’s put all in we can and see how it goes!
Great to hear all this, yes there does indeed seem to be a bit of a sea change going on, we just had a great Head Teacher with us on Sunday who was asking all the right questions!
Just added the One Left card games, updated the animals card game graphics and the populations & GDPs for the countries card game!
When is Amye doing a Basic Skills workbook for the Challenge level?
Basic Skills Workbook are amazing! Thank you.
Will there be for other levels as well?
Hi Elena, not as yet!
I really appreciate all these resources, and also want to echo how wonderful it would be if Amye would consider doing a Basic Skills workbook for the remaining levels of Genki. That would be an awesome tool and further selling point.
