alrighty me lil boyz & girlz!!!
tis dat time again!!! contest time!!!

i realize we all want to learn words, be able to speak some conversation.
and that's all good! but!!! how bout we start learning to read&write some
so that's what this contest is all about!! and to get you started on the right foot!!!
we need to create a FUN!! and enjoyable chart to use!!

before we get started!! let's go over the different forms of writing!!

"What's the difference between romaji, hiragana, katakana and kanji?"


"Why kanji and how many kanji do I need to learn to read Japanese?"


ThE cOnTeSt!!!
ok!!! so we're gonna start with hiragana!! we're gonna draw up a chart like the one below!!





Da RuLeZ!!
1) it's up to you if you want to write the characters from left to write or from top to bottom.
do it the way that would help YOU the most!!

2) it's your call if you want to do rows and columns (boxes).
if you don't want to, that's fine.

3) size is up to you but if you do poster!! you can always hang it!!
then take a picture or scan it and upload it!! once uploaded, u can always print out a
"cheat sheet" small size.
if you start with a small chart and later decide to blow it up, you may lose some quality.
again, it's completely up to you! i'm just throwing some ideas out there!!

4) with each character, you want to draw a picture that begins with the character.
there's a list of words in the below "Words!" spoiler to help you!!
now it's up to you, if you want to also write the characters out in romaji (ex. a, i, u, e, o) and even spell the whole word out. look at all the example charts to get an idea.

5) pencil, colored pencils, pen, colored pens, crayons, paints...go for it! and last
6) HAVE FUN!!!!

Writing Hiragana
here are some sites that will help you with writing hiragana!!
http://japanese.about.com/library/blhira.htm
http://www.japanese-name-translation.com/site/hiragana_symbols.html
and to hear how each character is pronounced!!
http://www.genkienglish.net/genkijapan/hiraganachart.htm

Words!


pRiZeS!!!


1st place gets 1st choice!!!
if enough people enter, we'll have a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th place!!!

DeAdLiNe!!! january 31!!

i wanna say a big domo arigats to jakari-chan!!! for the wonderful posters for the contest!!! thank you!!!

you'll want to do a chart just like the one above.
so yes, you'll write out each hiragana character.
