Welcome Back!

Dear Parents,

Welcome! I am Maverick Arenas (Yàlǎoshī), Mandarin teacher in Nursery, Pre-Kindergarten and Grade 2 class. It is my pleasure to have your child in my Mandarin class this year and I look forward to a wonderful and fun-filled learning experience with your children.

I believe that the students should be the center of learning, so it is my job to facilitate, guide and lead each of them as they enjoy every learning opportunity in and out of the classroom. I assure you that I will work efficiently in meeting every child’s learning need in any way I can.

I know that both teachers and parents share a common goal: for the children to have a fruitful and successful learning experience all throughout the year. In this note, I believe that an open communication will greatly help your child’s learning development. Please feel free to contact me via my school email marenas@cismanila.organd/or set an appointment with Ms. Kitin Conchu at Tel. No. (632) 798-0011 Local 103 or 106.

Thank you so much for your support.

 

Sincerely,

Maverick Arenas

Kindergarten Mandarin (Nationality)

 

 

Kindergarten Mandarin

 

Dear Kindergartenparents,

 

Students in Kindergarten enjoyed learning Countries and Nationalities in Mandarin class. They were so excited to see their country’s flags and read the Chinese characters for their nationality. This unit’s focus is to help them identify different nationalities in Chinese and read Chinese characters related to countries/nationalities. We also learned how to introduce our self and some friends’ nationalities using the sentence pattern: 我是中国人。XXX是美国人。XXX是瑞典人。XXX是菲律宾人。In writing, students patiently write each stroke to see the entire structure of the Chinese characters. We have learned writing the following words: 中国人、美国人、日本人、韩国人。
