alrighty me lil boyz & girlz!!!
we did a Hiragana Chart waaay back!! (under the LJL group which is no more sadly)
& so now it's time 4 da Katakana Chart!!!

becuz the contest will b very similar 2 the hiragana 1....
i'm just gonna cut&paste alot of wat i said there!!

let's begin again with the different forms of japanese 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!!! we're gonna draw up a chart like the one below!!


extensions


Da RuLeZ!!
1) it's up to you if you want to write the characters from left to right 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! NO PHOTOSHOP!!! and last
6) HAVE FUN!!!!

Writing Katakana

here are some sites that will help you with writing katakana!!
http://japanese.about.com/od/howtowritekatakana/How_to_Write_Katakana.htm
http://www.japanese-name-translation.com/site/write_katakana.html
and to hear how each character is pronounced!!
http://www.genkienglish.net/genkijapan/katakana.htm

Words!



pRiZeS!!!

they'll b 5 WINNERS!!! who'll get 2 choose 1 of the above main prizes!!! ~~~~ AND!!


your choice of a key chain!! cellphone charm strap!! or chop sticks w/ case!!

so winners get 2 PRIZES!!!
