Week 6: Labeling the House - Bathroom

We're going to label the house now so we are surrounded with Ojibwemowin. Once something is labeled, we aren't allowed to use the English anymore for those items.

We're going to start with the bathroom.

Index cards and a black marker work good.

NOTE: The (an), (oon) etc. are how you say the words plural. So, for example, waasechigan is a window. Waasechiganan are windows.

Waakaa’igan(an) - House

Miiziiwigamig(oon) - Bathroom
Giziindime’on(an) - toilet paper
Giziingwe’on(an) - towel
bagizowin(an) - bathtub
Mashkiki(wan) - medicine
Gaashkibaajigan(an) - razor
Binaakwaan(an) - comb
Zhooshkwega’igan(an) - clothes iron
Giziibiiga’igan(an) - soap
Waabamoojichaagwan(an) - mirror
Giziiyaabide’on(an) - toothbrush
