Shouldn't the Go-on reading しょう be written in Katakana like this : ショウ ?
Thank you for the comments ! I wish there were more comments on each kanji ! It helps a lot when you just start to know where to focus on !
wow I didn't know that! it is pretty interesting ^_^ thank you!
Absolutely true. Learn a few important "kunyomi" first and as you encounter others you will pick them up.
One small note 生（なま）is also the kanji character used for draft beer (unpasteurized) in Japan. It is on cans, bottles and bar taps. When you ask for beer you say "nama biiru wo kudasai", or simply "nama wo kudasai". I think this is an important kunyomi.
hmmm... well, with practising you will encounter several of those kunyomi, anyway for starting maybe is sufficient something like:
生きる i-kiru - to live; to exist
生まれる u-mareru or 生れる uma-reru - to be born
and if you want to add...
生える ha-eru - to grow; to spring up
