ACTIVITY OF THE WEEK

This week, your children will have to follow your hands closely as they try to find the character card.

ACTIVITIY 1 - Find the Character Game
(age 3+, single/multiple player)
WHAT YOU NEED 道具
HOW TO MAKE 準備
  • Choose at least three cards from the Study Cards, or
  • (optional) Write one character on each card (at least three cards)
  • Bend/Crease each card so it’s easy to stand up and hold/grab
HOW TO PLAY 玩法
  1. Take 3 character cards and place them face up. Choose a character for players to find.
  2. Next, in the same order as before, either turn the cards face down or put them under a cup face down.
  3. Move the cards/cups around.
  4. Ask where the chosen character is and have each player choose where they think the card is.
  5. Flip over all cards and see who is right.
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. To vary difficulty just change the speed at which you mix up the cards. The faster you go, the harder the game becomes.
  2. For variety, you can change up whatever is covering the cards.

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~

We would love to hear your comments and see pictures of your kids doing the activities. Make sure you join our Sagebooks HK Parent Support Facebook Group and share with us!

HOMESCHOOLING TIPS

If your child can already read English/pinyin, you may find it helpful to use sticky notes or an easy to remove washi tape to cover the English/pinyin. This way, you can be sure that your children actually recognize the characters instead of just reading the pinyin or translating from the English.

Alternatively, you can use a half sheet of paper and cover the English/pinyin. This is both faster and likely to cause less damage to your books (However, because it is also less permanent, your child might be able to cheat!)

Incidentally, you can usually tell when your child is reading pinyin instead of reading the characters because their pronunciation will mostly likely be off. Kids usually can’t help reading pinyin like they’re reading English.
