Chinese Learning Activity : Stroke Guessing Game

Character Stroke Guessing Game

希望我們在這裏分享的各種遊戲能帶給孩子學習的歡樂,也帶給你更多的家庭教學靈感。大家發到【講媽 ⦁ 講爸】Facebook 群組 的孩子學習照片為我們帶來很大的鼓舞。要是你還未加入我們的大家庭,那就要趕快去看看喔!

We hope you have been finding these activities and tips helpful and fun. We certainly have been enjoying your pictures and feedback in our Sagebooks HK Parent Support Facebook Group. If you haven’t checked us out there yet, please take a quick second to join!

This week’s activity is similar to our slow character reveal activity except instead of using a flashcard and covering it up, we will be writing the character down.

ACTIVITY OF THE WEEK

We’ll be testing how quickly your child can guess the character we are writing. This activity requires your child to understand stroke order and recognizing the possibility that multiple characters start out the same way. It helps your child identify at which point the character becomes unique.

ACTIVITIY 1 - Guess Character Game
(age 3+, single/multiple player)
WHAT YOU NEED 道具
  • Paper/dry erase board
  • Pen/pencil
HOW TO MAKE 準備

The activity is the making so you don’t have to have any special materials or create anything this week.

HOW TO PLAY 玩法
  1. Write the first stroke of a character.
  2. See if your child can guess based on that stroke alone. If not, write the next stroke.
  3. Continue until your child guesses the correct character.
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY 玩法變化

視乎孩子的情況,你可以增加以下的活動:

Depending on the age of your child, you can increase or decrease the difficulty level of the activity by:

  1. If your child is very young, show them 3 characters and tell them you will choose one of those characters to write. To make the game easy, have the characters be very different. (For example: 大,小,口.) It should be obvious from the first stroke what character you are writing.
  2. If your child finds that too simple, you can make it a little harder by choosing 3 characters with the same radical. (For example: 左,在,有.) With the example, your child won’t know until the third stroke what the character will be.
  3. For multiple players, whoever guesses the character first wins a point.
  4. For fun, if you have an older kid, you can have THEM write characters and have YOU guess which character it is. They’ll get some practice writing with proper stroke order and you will get to provide entertainment for them if they “stump” you.

我們希望能看到你的孩子做這些遊戲的照片或影片,也希望能聽到你的意見或提問。更歡迎加入我們的【講媽 ⦁ 講爸】Facebook 群組,我們等你喔~

HOMESCHOOLING TIPS

雖然透過手工和遊戲對孩子的學習有幫助,但不要讓這一點造成不必要的壓力。

只要你每天跟着基礎漢字500的課程教導孩子,即使不做任何額外的遊戲活動,孩子也照樣能學會那500個漢字。我們的生活本來就已經充滿壓力和四方八面的各種要求,不要再為自己另加壓力了。

基礎漢字500的課程設計會不斷重複之前已學過的內容,每課本身已經包含了豐富的重複練習。即使你完全沒有用閃卡,也沒有玩任何額外的遊戲,孩子也一樣能學得很好的。

我們提供的多種遊戲活動純粹是在時間許可的情況下為學習加添樂趣,做與不做並不影響孩子學習的成效。千萬不要勉強自己或孩子喔。

Don’t stress about doing crafts and activities to help your child learn characters.

Despite the fact that we’ve gone through 18 weeks of them, even if you don’t do anything extra, your child will still do well and learn the 500 Basic Chinese 500 characters. Life is busy and full of enough pressure and expectations. There is no need to add even more on your shoulders.

The Basic Chinese 500 curriculum is designed so that each successive chapter builds on the previous ones. There is plenty of built-in review within the lessons and even if you never pick up a flash card or do a fun activity, your child will be fine and learn just as well as if you did.

These suggested activities are for fun and completely optional. Please do not feel as if you must do them.
