Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes!

 

 

Kindergarten Chinese – Mr. Arenas

 

This week, Kinder class has been learning “Body parts” in Chinese. They were introduced to the Chinese version of the nursery rhyme “Head, shoulders, knees and toes”. Students were tasked to sing the song and copy the action from the video presented. Kids had played various games such as a “simon says”-like game called “老师说” which actually means “Teachers says” if translated in English. This game is played by everybody and students were asked to touch the body part that the teacher will say. It is one activity that we use in class to improve students’ listening skills and aid them to remember sets of words about the topic. They also completed an art activity which helps them to identify and locate their body parts.

 

Please find below, the summary of lessons we’ve taken up this week.  You are welcome to use this as a reference for reviewing Chinese lessons in preparation for next week’s lessons and for upcoming assessments:
