Pre-K Mandarin – Mr. Maverick Arenas
Pre-Kindergarten students focused on the topic “FAMILY” this month. We learned different words about family such as, 爸爸，妈妈，哥哥，姐姐，弟弟，妹妹，家，我. Every Mandarin class, students were tasked to identify Chinese characters, and read aloud words presented in class. They were also given opportunity to introduce their family in class by using sentence patterns discussed in class.
Please find below, the summary of lessons we’ve taken up this month. You are welcome to use this as a reference for reviewing Chinese lessons in preparation for future lessons and for upcoming assessments:
|Topic for the week||Family and strokes|
Mandarin topic of this month is 四季 (si ji) which means 4 seasons. We use this song to strength students oral skill, let them to understand how to express the feeling in different seasons. The lyric is very easy to sing. Hope parents can sing with your children at home also. Enjoy learning Chinese with singing song!
