We have been in school more than one month. Grade 1 have studied numbers and family. These pictures are about some activities what we do in Mandarin class. The first one is about a children’s song. We study it to review numbers. The second one is a game about numbers. Students are divided into different groups to match Chinese characters with numbers. The game can help students to practice and increase memory of numbers and Chinese characters. The third one is about family. We have study family title. For example, Daddy, Mom, big sister, big brother and others. Students draw the paint and stick their families. Then introduce their families for all students with new sentence pattern. I put student’s paint in my power point in Mandarin class. Students can look at their family portrait to make sentence. So every students can have an opportunity to practice new sentence pattern and new words.
Grade 4/5 ES1 students continue to build up their vocabulary words and recognizing Chinese characters without pinyin. During class discussion, students were able to pronounce words in the proper tone for the vocabulary words of transportation, colors and clothings. We included different class activities such as role play, partner conversation, charades, think-pair-share
to enhance their speaking skills and train them to be confident in speaking Mandarin Chinese.
