Are you up for a challenge?

“Teacher, what can I do after I have completed the worksheet?”

I often hear students who work fast asking what else they can do, and they are always up for my challenge.

For our revision worksheet, they was a crossword puzzle – and they were game enough to create their own puzzle!

IMG-8430 IMG-8429 IMG-8428They were so excited that this habit has grown in them – to challenge their friends! Their new narrative is now – “Teacher, can I set questions for student X?” Cheers to such moments of self-directed learning

April Aces

As we near the Youth Chinese Test (YCT), it is time for revision on the vocabulary words in the stipulated list. Apart from sample test papers, Grade 3 students engaged in a “word search” game.

IMG-8317

Each student first got a few flashcards with printed with Chinese phrases, we then discussed which topics they were related to. They then got to place the various cards on different spots.

When a topic is being called out, students moved around the classroom – frantically searching for the relevant phrases.

Meanwhile, ES1 students got busy in a card game challenge where each of them got to keep the cards by forming a sentence with the phrase they got from the deck.

What’s in your room?

As with the end of Quarter 3, we concluded the lesson on My room for Grade 3 Mandarin. Some of the students could remember the vocabulary well, while others needed more time for practice. Nonetheless, the most important element in language learning is to be able to apply it in our daily lives.

Through the activity of drawing out the layout of their bedroom, then labeling them accordingly, students got to put things into perspectives. Here are some of their masterpieces -
