Hi parents and little ones!
I prepared some learning activities for you. Enjoy!
Theme : Hands (shou3)
- Wash Hands song
|xǐ shǒu, xǐ shǒu, lái xǐ shǒu||Wash (your) hands, wash (your) hands, come (and) wash hands|
|cuō pào pao, bo bo bo bo bo||Make bubbles, bo bo bo bo bo|
|chōng chong shuǐ, huá lā lā lā lā||Rinse with water, hua la la la la la|
|xiǎo shǒu, xiǎo shǒu, liàng jīng jing||Little hands, little hands, so sparkly clean|
2. Learn the names of fingers
|index finger||shí zhǐ|
|middle finger||zhōng zhǐ|
|ring finger||wú míng zhǐ|
|little finger||xiǎo zhǐ|
Now, you can play the finger tipping game with your children. Ask your child to lower his head and look at the floor, while you tip his head with one of your fingers. Then, have them guess (in Chinese) which finger you used to tip.
3. Chinese Numbers with SINGLE hand gestures
Did you know, you can actually use just one hand to count to ten with simple gestures? A fun thing to learn. The lady in the video below speaks accurate Chinese, so do not worry! Besides, she helps you remember the gestures!
Till my next post! Enjoy and stay healthy.
