“The students couldn’t hide their excitement when they found out about our class activity,” Japanese Teacher Machiko Sensei said.
“Using origami paper students created a lovely pikachu bookmark. Students were invited to create a Japanese version of well-known stories 『みどり のひつじはどこにいるの？』 Where is the green sheep? 『はらぺこあおむし』 and The very hungry caterpillar.
“Students later enjoyed brainstorming a list of famous places in Japan they might find the green sheep as well as various Japanese foods the very hungry caterpillar might want to eat,” she said.
“Using their imagination and creativity, the students enjoyed making their own version of the story.”
