Elementary lesson resources

Elementary School education in Japan is going through a change. There are new textbooks for Elementary school, and the approach for English education is shifting.
Currently, the only required English classes for Elementary schools are 5th & 6th graders to complete English activities throughout the year. Any other English lessons for students younger than this is up to each school's discretion.
From 2020, 5th & 6th graders are going to have 70 English classes a year, and 3rd & 4th graders will have 35. Leading up to 2020 in the transition period from the old format to the new, 5th & 6th graders will have approximately 50 classes a year, and 3rd & 4th graders 15 a year.
