These two weeks, Sydney, Paul and me shared lots of laugh and fun time.
In Math, we played math matching puzzle. Children need to count their pieces of puzzle in Chinese and find the correct matching piece. After they found all the matching cards, we practiced saying number phrases in Chinese, like " five cars 五辆车". Children practiced numbers, nouns and measures words in Chinese. We also sang our number songs with the cards.
In literacy, we read several story books, like " This is how we take a bath", " Elmo's book". With this books, we practiced actions, shapes, colors, and simple phrases like " where is .../ ... 在哪里", " Here it is/....在这里“. "This is how we take a bath" is the funniest one. We sang a song and did the actions that pretended we were taking the bath with the animals in the book.
In Music, we kept practicing "twinkle twinkle little star 小星星“.
In Craft, we made paper-rockets last weekend, and played a rocket game with the rockets. The children also practiced “走走走walk walk walk" while we played the game. This week, we didn't have craft, but both kids kept asking me "when is it gonna be craft time?". I believe they enjoyed making crafts with me :-)
We also practiced Mandarin with flashcards, classroom activities and games, like blocks, and Chinese jumping chess.
Looking forward to seeing them next Sunday!
