Word Searches for Junior Sunshine 5 & 6

Word searches & writing practice based on the Junior Sunshine 5 & 6 textbooks.

Heavily inspired by wordsearches created by @earthiverse! Unfortunately I can't find their activities anymore, but I wanted to include .docx versions so folks can edit to fit their local areas.

Word searches are based on vocabulary from each lesson. Writing practice focuses on key grammar and sentences. There are also notes for writing rules, such as capitalization, spaces, and punctuation.

Answer sheets are included.

For Sunshine 5, Lessons 2 & 3 have all uppercase versions (since the students won't learn how to write lowercase letters until Lesson 3).

HOW TO USE

I give these out at the beginning of a new chapter, and the students have until the chapter ends to finish both sides of the worksheet. I'll check for completion/correctness, then give out stickers as a reward!

Please use in whatever way works for your classes!

CUSTOMIZABLE SECTIONS

Sunshine 5

  • Lesson 2: change to your town/city
  • Lesson 9: the entire worksheet is based on famous things in my town, please change it to match yours!

Sunshine 6

  • Lesson 7: last 3 sentences are based on my prefecture, please change it to match yours! ナン spelling is also according to the textbook even though it should be spelled naan.

NOTES

Font is UD Digi Kyokasho NK-R. Images from Irasutoya or the textbook. I used this website to generate the word searches: https://tools.atozteacherstuff.com/word-search-maker/wordsearch.php

I've personally only used the first few chapters that have been covered in the 1st semester, so please let me know if there are any mistakes.
