Japan’s Eigo Notebook

The Ministry of Education in Japan (MEXT) is issuing a new textbook for Elementary age students. They have also gone ahead and listed the curriculum on their website. Most of it is in Japanese, but the expressions part is in English.

Using Dream English Materials with the Eigo Notebook

From what I understand the Eigo Note will not be compulsory, and it will be ok to use supplementary materials with the program. If you do teach in Japanese Elementary Schools, you may want to check with your director.  I started a new page on my website dedicated to the Eigo Note. I have a lot to add, but it turns out that I already have free materials and songs to match most of the 5th Grade Curriculum. Lucky for me : ) I haven’t had a chance to look at the 6th grade Curriculum, but I hope to do that in the next week and get materials up there as well. Please check out the Dream English Eigo Note page, and I hope you can find some useful material.

  1. Thanks for that. It is a very good idea to start thinking about stuff for eigo note lessons. At my BOE we won’t start for a year but its good to start thinking about it. After all we will we teaching a lesson every week (5th and 6th graders), thats very different to my current elementary schedule

  2. Here is an English translation of the entire 5 and 6th grade teachers manual, and a supplement pack of activities to go with all the lessons, for anyone interested
