Hiragana Charts

27 Oct

About a year ago, I had a sudden urge to display a hiragana chart on the wall for my daughter. My criteria were:

1) It has to be visually appealing

2) Less than $10

3) Available for purchase in the U.S.A.

I searched Amazon.com, ebay, Craigslist, google, you name it, and couldn’t find anything! Luckily, one of my ESL students knew of my quest and bought one for me when she visited Japan.

Luckily for you, since that time, I’ve found a cute hiragana chart you can download and print for free! This is what it looks like:

Cute, no? You can download it as a pdf here. It would look really nice displayed in a frame on the wall, don’t you think?

You also have the option of printing the chart in black and white. My daughter loves using the chart as a coloring page.  At KF STUDIO, you can also find katakana and alphabet charts, as well as a whole bunch of other *adorable* downloads, for free! やった〜!

Don’t like this one? Other options here and here.

EVEN MORE hiragana charts!

There’s also some hiragana charts you can buy online. We really liked this one— we had it up in our bathtub for a few years and it really helped my kids learn hiragana!
