Over the last three years, I have spent literally hundreds of hours creating, testing and tweaking these lessons plans, a while keeping these two important rules in mind:
The first was that these lessons had to FUN. Most importantly fun for the students, but also fun to teach. I made sure these lessons hit this point out of the ballpark.
The second was that they had to require 15 minutes or less to prepare for. I know you came to Japan to have fun in Japan, not worry about planning lessons for hours and hours. In fact, in most cases your prep time with be less than 5 minutes.
Here's what's included:
I know you will have a great year with these lessons and so will your students!
To give you a better idea of what is included, I've prepared a sample, so be sure to check it out if you want some hands on time with these lesson plans.

"I'm a 7-year ALT. When James asked me to be the guinea pig for these lesson plans, I told him to ___ off. I already knew the best way to do each lesson. But, after some convincing, I gave them a try, and I'm very glad I did. Fun lessons, minimal prep, and my company was happier than ever with my work."

I show up at one of my ES's on Tuesday, expecting to teach the 3 classes (two 1st grade, one 2nd grade) that the schedule has written on it. But, lo and behold! "Sean Sensei, we think it would be great if you taught 5th and 6th with Tanaka sensei today. Do you have any ideas?"
"Uh, yeah....Gimme a sec."
Mild panic ensues, but I know you got my back, cause that's what the Yearly Lesson Plans are for right?
