(7) On Wednesday, we study homemaking and English.
(7) On Thursday, we study music and PE.

ALT- Say the speech as written. Then ask students what words they heard- write these words into the lines on the blackboard. Lastly, ask students to translate the speech, then listen and repeat with the students.
Students- Listen to the speech and try to catch some words. Tell the teacher what words you heard. Translate the speech, then listen and repeat.
Activity Preparation- in small groups- 15 minutes
Materials- a schedule poster for each group, pens and markers.
Students- In small groups, fill in a schedule poster with subject names in ENGLISH AND JAPANESE. Using the same subject many times, and on the same day, is OK. Each student choosing all subjects for one day might be easiest.
ALT/HRT- Help students write English names onto schedule posters.
Activity- 10 minutes
ALT/HRT- Collect all of the schedule posters.
Blackboard- After the 2 or 3 groups have spoken, post thier schedule posters. Write a letter (A, B, C) next to each.
Students- 2 or 3 groups come to the front of the class, and 1 group at a time read their schedule for all the class to hear (On Monday, we study art and science.). After each of the 2 or 3 groups has read their schedule poster, post the 2 (3) schedules on the blackboard, with letters (A, B, C). All other students listen and try to guess which poster was made by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd group.
Alternate- Each of the groups in the front of the class reads only one day from their schedule, in turns (Monday, Monday, Monday; Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday; etc.)
Wrap-Up- 3 minutes
(Present common mistakes to the whole class. Write the mistaken point on the blackboard, and ask if anybody can see the mistake.) Or-
HRT to Students, in Japanese:
-What did we talk about today?
-Were there some words you already knew?
-Did you learn any new words?
-What was fun or interesting?
-What was difficult?
-How can we make that easier next time?
