This is a fun Chinese class that meets once a week. We learn to read, write, speak, and listen in Mandarin while doing hands on activities and projects. Here are some of the projects that we have done. Click here for Students Only Page.
During our food unit, we learned to express our likes and dislikes for various foods with activities like games, skits and writing original songs. Here is a short video of an original song written by a student.
We also learned to cook Chicken Chow Mein 鸡丁炒面. Before we started cooking, we learned important cooking vocabulary in Mandarin. After we cooked the food, each student made a little book in Chinese with step by step instructions on cooking this dish.
Students were involved in every aspect of cooking. Look how hard they are working!
This is what the noodles looked like before and after! Yummy!
To celebrate Mother’s Day, we made beautiful 3D shadow boxes with handwritten Chinese letters on the back.
For Father’s Day we made an accordion styled card!
