I decided to make the Nativity story a little bit more exciting this time round by making some puppets to go along with the story telling. Thanks to the wonderful resources I found on 1+1+1=1, I was able to put the story materials together quickly.
Being so addicted to making learning materials and wanted to make full use of the materials already made, I designed some Chinese activity materials to be done after the story telling so that we can get some learning done at the same time ^.^
DD has a great time matching and pasting:
In this activity, she revised the words 一二三四五and her counting skill.
Training her fine motor skill through tracing of lines and recognising Chinese strokes.
Learning the names of the animals
Categorising 人 and 动物
DS was in a lazy-to-write mood today, so you will see that some of the woods are written by his beloved parent, some written by him. But I make sure he knows what is written on the paper.
词句重组 helps him appreciate how a sentence should be structured.
Learning how to use "我" to write something about himself.
Learning about 量词 and applying them correctly
Penmanship time. I've made tracing words for him to write over them. At the same time, the activity helps him understand how to expand on a word.
