Rec Week 25-30 Chinese Learning Update

親愛的家長們

這幾星期我們的主題主要是關於環境和環保。

地球的生態環境和我們的生活息息相關,我們先以看世界地圖開始link ,讓學生對地球上可飲用的水源有一個大概的了解。一個《分享水》link 的視頻讓學生明白水的重要性,動植物和人類都需要乾淨的水源;《小雨沙沙沙》 link 和《泉水叮咚》兩首歌不但讓孩子們知道水的來源,也讓他們了解到陽光、土壤和水源對植物的重要性。然後我們從故事《樹真好》link 中帶出了樹的重要性。新的兒歌《小松樹》 link也成了孩子的最愛。

 

接著我們談到動物居住的環境,讓孩子們了解不同的動物的居住環境。我們給孩子們看了《北極熊的請求》的視頻 link,讓他們知道因為我們人類浪費能源,導致北極熊的家園漸漸消失,我們應該怎樣做才能幫助屬於動物和人類的地球呢?

接著我們和孩子們一起來到空氣清新、環境優美的香港仔水塘,除了欣賞沿途的美景,他們在這裡不但看到美麗的蝴蝶、花朵,鬱鬱蔥蔥的樹林,還學習了如何共享環境,保持環境的清潔。我們都受益良多。link

為了更好的建立孩子們的語言能力,我們通過遊戲和課堂活動練習如何表達動物們居住的環境link。我們讓孩子們自己作主,選擇自己想學的舞蹈,他們決定要學習《卡加布列島》link,因為島上是一個美麗的小天堂,動植物和大家都和平相處,當然他們還是會要求再跳《小蘋果》和《妖怪手錶》。

Dear parents,

These weeks we mainly focus on our environment and environmental protection.

Our living is highly related to our ecological system. We started with looking at the World Map letting the children have an idea about the sources of our drinking water link. Together we watched a video about sharing water and we talked about the importance of sharing water link; how to share water; who needs water. The two new songs《小雨沙沙沙》Drizzle Drizzle) 和《泉水叮咚》(Spring Water)made them understand the importance of water, sun and soil to the plants. Talking about environment we cannot forget trees. We shared a story《樹真好》(Tree is really good!) and a song 《小松樹》(Little Pine Tree).

 

Also we have talked about different animals’ living environments/preferences. We shared a movie called 《北極熊的請求》(A Request from Polar Bears). The children have learned that the polar bears are losing their lands because the temperature of the earth is raising, due to the energy wasting from our daily lives.  We had a discussion about what we could do to help them and help ourselves.

Later we went together to beautiful Aberdeen Reservoir for a field trip, where they saw beautiful butterflies, flowers and trees. This precious experience helped them build up knowledge of environment sharing and how to keep the environment clean. Link

To enhance their literacy skill, we designed activities to help them express animals’ living environment link. We let them choose which dance they wanted to learn and they chose 《卡加布列島》(Cacha-bread Island). In this island, which is like a paradise, animals, plants and us live together happily. Of course they sometimes would still want to dance 《小蘋果》(Little Apple) and《妖怪手錶》(Watchi-chi)

We have learned new characters and practiced recognition. In our Chinese Center Time, we combined colorful paper in geometric shapes to make animals; We played Chinese tinytap game on Ipad link ;We built animal safari together, and played dice game link;  We played memory card game and colored Easter Eggs; We also had our Karaoke station using QR code scanner to sing with Ipad link. We had loads of fun!
