    Warm Up and Main Activity

    ビンゴをしましょう!

    Give each student a Katakana Bingo Card by sharing this link in chat:
    https://mfbc.us/m/bc7zkt (will generate different card per student)

    To play the game, open this link: https://myfreebingocards.com/bingo-card-generator/free/bc7zkt and click on the Call Game button. 

    When students have that katakana on their card, they should click that katakana to mark it.

    For the first character, make sure the students understand the game.
    例えば:最初は「フ」です。誰か「フ」がありますか?
    If they have 「フ」, make sure they cross it out.

    The first to get five-in-a-row wins! Once a student wins, have them read out which ones they got! (So we can also check if they really did get them.)

    Play 2-3 rounds with students. (Have them click New Card to get a new card) This should take about 10-15 minutes. 
     

    Main Activity
    Now we are going to play bingo again but a little fancier! We will show students a picture and say the word and they will mark off the word by reading the katakana on these bingo sheets.  

    In order to call the picture, you will circle it using annotate and say it aloud. (You will not use the call feature for this activity) 

    The first to get five-in-a-row wins! Once a student wins, have them read out which ones they got! (So we can also check if they really did get them.)

    Read each Can-Do in English and have each student respond either:
    はい
    いいえ
    まあまあ
