Dear Nursery parents,
Students in Kindergarten enjoyed learning “Weather” in Mandarin class. They were able to relate the current weather condition in their area with the lesson. This unit’s focus is to help them identify different weather condition and read Chinese characters related to weathers. They also learned how to introduce the weather for today using the sentence pattern: 今天晴天。今天多云。今天下雨。今天下雪。
Please find below, the summary of the lesson we’ve taken up for this unit. Apart from Seesaw app, you are welcome to use this as a reference for reviewing Chinese lessons in Nursery Mandarin Class:

HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR. LET’S LEARN CHINESE LANGUAGE
Last January 24, we celebrated Chinese New Year 2020 or the Spring Festival (Lunar New Year) with song and dance in the gym.
ES1 sang 《笑笑力量大》 as they welcome the year of the rat.
In Grade 11 CHI B class, the class have learned about Health, Customs and Traditions.
It is during this time where the class discussed about individuals being health conscious, students going on a diet to look good, health benefits of certain food available in the market nowadays etc. It has been part of our discussion to understand the culture behind drinking tea, different ways on how to drink it and its brief history. As part of their cultural learning, I think it is only best for students to experience and enjoy the tradition of drinking tea.
During our review and discussion about the traditions of drinking tea around the world. Each student was given a cup of their flavored fruit tea to experience and understand the transformation of the traditional tea compared to a brand new variety of tea available in the market now.
By doing so, I believe that students were able to understand better the difference between the traditional freshly brewed tea and the millennial tea we buy from bobba tea stores.
