Kinder Mandarin – Mr. Maverick Arenas
Kindergarten students focused on the topic “Daily routine” this month. We learned different words about daily routine such as, 洗澡、洗手、洗头、洗头发、洗脸、洗脚、起床、上学、刷牙、吃早饭、放学、回家、睡觉. Every Mandarin class, students were tasked to identify Chinese characters, and read aloud words presented in class. They were also given opportunity to say their daily routine 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|
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。
