Weekly Words no. 5: Eggs and Bunnies

March 30, 2018

 

Happy Good Friday, mina-san!  I'm sure that (if you are someone who celebrates it) you are getting excited for Easter!  I am too!

 

My boyfriend and I are heading to be with my two sisters for this weekend.  On Tuesday, I'll be back home hosting an Easter Egg Hunt for my friends! 

 

I got the idea to host the hunt after realizing that some of my Japanese friends on my college campus have never celebrated Easter before!  I'm lucky to live off-campus in a house with a huge yard.  There'll be so many good hiding spots!  

 

This week's words are on the easier-side, since I was just told one of my newest readers is just starting their language learning adventure!  ようこそ!  Welcome new reader!  

 

 

•  兎    Rabbit, Hare, Bunny Written in hiragana as うさぎ

 

ex.  やさしいは月に住んでいる。

       Yasashi usagi wa tsuki ni sunde iru.

       A kind rabbit lives on the moon.

 

 

• 卵  Egg Written in hiragana as たまご  and occasionally written with the kanji 玉子

 

ex.  イースターの時、子供はをパステルカラーで彩る。
       I-suta- no toki, kodomo wa tamago wo pasuterukara- de irodoru.

       At Easter time, children paint eggs in pastel colors.

 

 

ひよこ  Chick   Written in kanji as 雛

 

ex.  あのめんどりはこのひよこの母だ。
       Ano mendori wa kono hiyoko no haha da.

       The hen over there is this chick's mother.

       The bouncing children said "boing-boing" loudly.
