This week in Mandarin we have started a new topic with the text 《称象》, 《“聪明”的马》and《这匹马不是你的》. We have went through part of the vocabulary in the text and did some exercise on character writing as well as the Pinyin. Children need to hand in their characters writing homework by next Friday(26/5/2017). Besides that, we will also have two spelling next week which are Tuesday (23/5/2017)[Vocabulary sheet 1-13] and Friday(26/5/2017)[Vocabulary sheet 14-26].Children could practise their vocabulary through the link below for enhancing their learning.
This week we still continue learning last text教室里 (In the Classroom). Students have learnt new vocabularies and sentence patterns, such as 讲、小娃娃、都、乱丢、爱护、知道、已经、放心. During the lessons, we were focusing on reading long sentences and character writing practice. Apart from that, we have finished our words writing and some worksheet task – 教室里 (In the Classroom). On top of that, we had a storytelling session, the book is called ‘巴巴爸爸的学校’.
This week in Chinese the children have been learning a new topic《今天是星期几？》(What day is it today?). We learnt the new vocabulary by saying the days of the week in Mandarin and 昨天(yesterday), 明天(tomorrow) as well. For the writing activity, the children had to listen to the teacher saying the vocabulary in English and write it in Chinese. Apart of that, they also had to make a sentence using the vocabulary.They tried really hard in both activities.
