Japanese Language Hiragana Resource Pack

A resource pack highlighting key vocabulary for Japanese Hiragana and Kanji with English translations.

These teaching resources can be used in the classroom to consolidate the students’ knowledge of the Japanese Language, specifically Hiragana and wherever necessary, using Kanji text.

Languages other than English are an important part of understanding written text and spoken languages from around the world and how they relate to the students’ mother tongue.

These educational posters and other activities, along with our Teach Starter Hiragana resource collection can be used as part of a Japanese Language unit.

Hi TeachStarter,
Firstly, this looks great – thanks heaps! Just wanting to ask, is there a possibility to have both Hiragana and Romaji on the same chart (I know you have them separately…). Having both on the same poster would be absolutely ultimate for the classroom!!
Many thanks in anticipation,

Hi there,
We have deliberately left Romaji from this resource in response to the Australian Curriculum guidelines for teaching Japanese. We initially had the romaji resources only and have added the hiragana/kanji posters to support the Australian Curriculum Context Statement. It is important for students to begin to understand the phonetic nature of hiragana characters without relying on romaji as a ‘cheat-sheet’ of sorts.

I love these and would love to display them in my class to support our Japanese program…could I have the pronunciations added….particularly to the greetings? Thanks

Hi Kim,
We have another resource pack of these poster resources with the ‘romaji’ or English pronunciation written on them. Check out the link below:
