Ohashi Counting

Ohashi (chopstick) Counting 1 - 10 in Japanese

Using file folder corners I made fans that open into pockets.
Cut out the Japanese symbols for 1 - 10 for labels.
A larger container holds the chopsticks and they are counted into the fans while speaking in Japanese.
A beautiful foreign language extension of the Spindle Box!

This is awesome! I love it! We have the Japanese numbers as a three part card work and a writing work, but I live this idea of counting in Japanese. We count daily at circle time when studying Asia.
