Letters and Words

%e7%ac%ac6%e8%af%be-010

It is hard for kids to only learn Chinese letters. Last class we found that isn’t easy to teach kids to learn letters with different tones . Therefore,  it become interesting and simple to read a similar word rather than a letter. Just like repeat “wuya” not “u”.

让孩子们只学习汉语有声调的汉语字母,是有点困难的。上次课我们发现这对孩子来说的确不容易。于是,我们选择相似的词语来代替字母,这样也变得简单有趣。就是说重复乌鸦而不是“U”。

Kids  are excited about the pictures.

孩子们对图片特别兴奋。

We add some meaningful words to jazz it up.

我们增加了一些有意义的词语来让课堂变得生动。

We also made some card, one side pictorial and one side literal. We can let some students do games. Six volunteers got up back us  to hold the card. If I say a word that someone have then the student turn around and show picture to us. I would love to make the kids to say a word after the first round. Everyone can get their turn after almost three rounds. What’s important is the students can learn letters and words  in this way.

我们也做了一些卡片,一面是图片,一面是词语。然后请六个志愿者上前来,背对着大家举起卡片。如果我念到某人手持得卡片,那个人就转过身来,把图片展示给大家。一轮过后,我会叫其他孩子来选词。这样差不多三轮过后,每一个孩子都有自己的机会。不过最重要的还是,学生通过这样的方式掌握了字母和单词。

In this six letters, “ü” is most difficult for kids. Because there is no “ü” or similar “ü” in English. Therefore we try to learn “ü” by “u”. Let the students pronounce “u” firstly and then keep the shape of the mouth and put the tongue forward , so every can pronounce “ü”. Then practice “ü” with second tone ( “yú”means fish).

在这节课涉及到的六个字母当中,”ü”恐怕是孩子而言最难的一个了。因为英语中没有”ü”,甚至也没有近似”ü”的。因此我们尝试通过学习”u”来学习”ü”。让学生先发出”u”,然后保持口型不变,把舌头向前,于是每一个人可以发出”ü”。然后反复练习带二声的鱼。
