儿童中文班 : 木头人回家

这星期我编了”木头人回家”为主题的中文课。上课第一个活动就是玩’一二三,木头人’的游戏! 我把游戏做为中文课的第一个活动,目的是为了让学生们对上中文课有个正面积极的期待与态度,不把学中文视为枯燥乏味之事。 经过一番热身后,我们才开始学字卡(本周字为:也、一起、玩、头、回、到)。一如往常,学了字卡后,又是游戏时间。这次我用了自制桌游(看下图),玩法与蛇棋一样。 最后以简单的找句子(看下图)等练习来巩固学生的记忆。学生都喜欢小栎园的作业因为当中的中文字都是学过的加上当日的新字,做起来很轻松,没有很大的挫败感,可以自己完成。 自编中文作业 – Self designed worksheets 自制桌游 – DIY Board Game 找句子游戏 – Find the sentence worksheet

儿童中文班 :象形字

大家好!新年快乐!万事如意!虽然人在度假,也想利用晚上悠闲的时间写写博客。 在瑞士 Sportsferien 开始前的两个个星期,我们又以象形字为主题,一共学了12 个中文字。在此,想跟大家分享一下我们课堂上的活动与游戏。 我这次用了小孩们最喜欢的印章,让他们把刚学的字找出来,然后再盖个印。他们必须分外细心,因为作业上的字都很相似。 另外一个小游戏是’窗中字’。游戏只需要两张纸,一张当窗户,一张是中文的字。学生随着老师的指示,找出相应的字。 最后一个是楼梯计分游戏。这个游戏当作这一课的总结,玩字卡,每认得一个字,可以搭一级楼梯,看谁先从桌子的一边达到另一边。 这些游戏和作业的设计宗旨在于让学生可以亲手做(玩),在过程中对每个中文字有鲜明的印象。 印章找字游戏 – Stamping game 自制教具 ‘窗中字’ – Simple self designed ‘Window Game’ 自编中文作业 – Self designed worksheet 楼梯计分 – Stairs game Happy Chinese New Year everyone. While I am enjoying my holiday, I still found a little ‘time slot’ to update my blog about my last …
