How Do We Learn Chinese?Posted by Teresa Hsiao
Second graders have been exploring different ways to sharpen their oral and written language skills in Chinese as a team. They practiced counting fluently in Chinese by playing patty cake and exercised their brain muscles with rounds of Heart Attack card game in Chinese! They also have been racing to learn how to write Chinese characters in proper stroke orders so that they could earn money for their “bank accounts.” It is impressive how our eager learners incorporated various Chinese characters they know or want to learn when they decorated their own piggy banks and how quickly they learned to enter into their bank account ledgers by recording dates and adding up the balance in Chinese. By the end of September, the class has come together as a cohesive learning community where students feel safe to take learning risks together and are ready to help each other to learn more Chinese!
