WHAT DID WE LEARN?
We can't believe that Week 6 is right around the corner! This past Saturday, we've spent the first hour reviewing Lesson 12 with Miss Lo and explored some of the vocabulary from Lesson 14 with Miss Pin in the second hour. We reviewed some of our vocabulary such as go to school, listen well, who, smart, and be good with our special guest, Grandpa Wang and his puppy Toby. They put on a puppet show for us and we're so glad that we get to practice our vocabulary with them! After the puppet show, we've learned to say teacher and eyes by looking for them in our Discovery Box.
Next, Miss Pin helped us review the color red and yellow by having us look for things that are red or yellow in the box. When we find something that is red, we would shout, red, and when we find something that is yellow, we would shout, yellow. We had fun looking for red and yellow things but it was not easy for some of us to say red and yellow because they sounded a little too similar.
When we came back from our snack break, Miss Pin helped us review the color red and learn the color yellow by showing us a really red apple and a really yellow banana. We were asked to pass the fruit to a friend and say, "the red apple" and "the yellow banana". Even though we just had a snack...the apple and banana still looked quite delicious to some of us! We almost didn't get to pass the apple and the banana all the way back to Miss Pin. ^0^
WHAT ARE WE LEARNING NEXT?
In Week 6, we will be completely focusing on Lesson 14. In the first hour, Miss Lo is looking forward to learn the some of the target vocabulary with everyone by using the Movement Station! In addition to Grandpa and grandma Wang, and Toby, Miss Lo will be bringing a special buddy to class this week! He would only talk if you say, "Speak Chinese", to him and he can't wait to meet everyone!! In the second hour, Miss Pin is looking forward to learn some of the target vocabulary with everyone by using some movement freeze games! She looks forward to see everyone having a great time learning the vocabulary through movement!
Please have your child bring two to three personal items (such as their favorite toy, shirt, stuffed animal, book, bottles, etc.) that are red to school tomorrow for an activity. I apologize for the late notice! Also, due to our limited storage space, please plan on bringing the used T-shirt for your child's craft time weekly. We greatly appreciate your help!
We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!
