This week in Mandarin we continued our Lesson 8《我去学校》(I am going to school) and focused on describe a picture from text book. We started this with learn a few new vocabulary and then make sentences, some of the children able to make it into a story. We learned that we should look at the picture carefully and describe it as detailed as we can. Besides that we are also learning complex grammar now, some children find it a little tricky so we will do more practice next week.
This week we still continue learning last text我去学校 (I am going to school). During the lessons, we were focusing on reading on long sentences and character writing practice. We have learned new vocabularies, such as 再见、了、我去学校、对…说、什么、为什么、要、不要. Students also learned the uses of the ‘Full Stop’ and ‘comma’. Apart from that, we also sang new songs called ‘老师老师’ and ‘快乐起床歌’.
This week in Chinese the children has been continued learning the topic 《我饿了》(I am hungry). We played a “fruits salad” game, this is to test their awareness and listening skill about the name of the fruits in Mandarin. Thereafter, the children take turns to practice sentence pattern, such as :我饿了，我要吃___________。（I am hungry, I want to eat__________）,they need to complete the sentence using flash cards. Additionally, we were focusing on reading the text to enhance their learning and recognizing the Chinese character.
