Daily Routine Wheel

Students create a wheel showing the times and activities they do in a day.

Level: Primary, Junior_Secondary

After students have practiced the pattern 「~じに・・・ます」, 「~じに・・・ますか」, the teacher can make each student the two wheels below from the resource provided. Attach the smaller wheel on top of the larger with a metal paper binder. Students turn the upper wheel back and forth to match an activity to the times of the day, creating sentences which describe a daily routine in chronological order.

Students can then create a text using the wheel as their basis.
