hvweek25yesnoIn this week’s video we use a song to practice the most basic words for answering questions, yes and no.


Classroom Tip
The Yes, No Song is great for working on answering Yes/No Questions. Use it with Unit 8 of Happy Valley 1. After, review feelings by asking, “Are you grumpy?” or have some fun asking, “Are you Kinka?” so students get more practice with the Yes and No response.

イエス・ノーの歌は、イエス・ノーで答える質問にもってこいです。ハッピーバレー1のユーニット8で使いましょう。その後に、 Are you grumpy? などの質問をして「気持ち」の復習をします。または、 Are you Kinka? などの楽しい質問でイエスとノーの練習を続けましょう。

At Home Tip
Use this after Storytime 8 Is it a Frog? video to practice answering yes and no. Then, ask your child silly questions; for example, ask, “Are you Kinka?” to get them to say, “No!” Use several different people’s names and finally use their name so they can answer, “Yes!”

ストーリータイム8の Is it a Frog? を見た後に、この動画でイエス・ノーで答える練習をしましょう。そして、ノーと言わせるために Are you Kinka? などの質問をします。色々な違う名前を出してからやっとイエスと答えられるように、最後に子供の名前を使います。
