儿童中文班主题 :同学与朋友

大家新年快乐! 今天的博客其实是关于2017年的最后一堂课,主题是”朋友与同学”。 在小栎园的小朋友们是怎么识中文字的呢?其实,我每一堂课都会准备Powerpoint简报和字卡。而在Powerpoint简报里,会有中文字演变的动画 (例子 :朋)或我自己编的小动画。最后,学生们就用字卡玩游戏,以巩固记忆。 除此之外,我也用拼图和美劳使学生们对中文字的印象更加深刻。请看看下面的照片。 学生们都学得很投入!

画出象形字 Drawing Chinese Pictograms

今天(11.11.2017)中文班的小朋友们又学象形字!在一个小时的课里,我会教他们认六个字(下课后,还是记得的)。学象形字最简单直接的方法,就是画画。学生们开心地用颜色笔,发挥想象力,画出中文字的意思,这比写字 (10次)更能让他们专心及投入。 根据一项 University of Waterloo 的研究,画图可以强化记忆。原因在于当我们画东西时,这个过程结合了“了解语义,视觉和运动技能的元素”,于此创造了强大深刻的记忆痕迹。 我们还玩了冰淇淋棒子游戏。小朋友需要闭着眼,掷冰棒。冰棒碰到的字卡,他们就得念出来。好玩的事,他们掷冰棒的时候,很希望每支冰棒都落在不同的字卡上。对我来说,机会来了,请把所有的字念一遍 ! 画中文字 Drawing chinese characters 冰淇淋棒子游戏 Ice cream sticks game According to a team of researchers at the University of Waterloo in Canada, drawing enhances memory.
