For past few weeks, grade 4&5 students pay more attention to Lesson 8: School Facilities（学校设施）. Students learned to listen, speak, read and write the words, and use the sentence structures to make sentences. Students they had fun playing games: Match words with pictures, Catch the chair, take a video of the introduction for the school with the sentence structures and words: “我们学校叫中华国际学校，我来介绍一下我们的学校。我们学校有……”
Grade 4-5 ES2 students continued with lessons on 身体部位 Body Parts.
Every Mandarin class, students learned new words, identify them in Chinese characters and pronounce the words correctly. They were also guided to write sentences by using the sentence pattern.

For the past few weeks, Grade 1 students focused on Lesson 3: A Good Friend ( Easy Steps to Chinese for Kids 2A). Students learned to listen, speak, read and write new vocabulary words and made sentence patterns in class. They also had fun singing “朋友,我的朋友“ and “找朋友.” Students were introduced to PinYin learning the six vowels of the Chinese alphabet and four tones. Below is a link for the Pinyin Song. Students had fun learning Mandarin through playing games, role playing, making sentences, etc. Below are the vocabulary words that we are learning for Lesson 3.
拼音 单韵母: 单韵母歌 Single Vowel Song
Vocabulary Words: 他, 他, 它, 我, 你, 他们, 学生, 朋友, 小学生, 中学生, 高中生, 大学生.
朋友我的朋友 My Friend Song
Learning mandarin is not easy, but somehow students find it incredibly fun to teach it to one another.
One way of a quick review on new vocabulary is to have the students to quiz one another, right after they are done with the writing practice.
Fun in class: guessing and writing the Chinese character my classmate is writing on my back.
Loving how the students take on active learning!
