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!

The activity this week is geared more towards older children, but your younger child can still participate. Remember to have age-appropriate expectations for your child so you don’t get frustrated at things they’re not developmentally ready to do.

ACTIVITY OF THE WEEK

This week, the activity is making phrases or sentences with the characters your child already knows.

WHAT YOU NEED 道具
  • 思展閱讀練習卡 (或自製字卡) Basic Chinese 500 Study Cards (or make your own) or
  • popsicle sticks or rocks
  • Sharpie or thick marker
  • Coloring pencils, crayons, markers, etc
HOW TO MAKE 準備
  • Choose the cards that you want to use, or
  • Write (or have your child write) a character on each cards, popsicle stick, or rock.
  • If your child wants to color and decorate the cards, let them.

Quick Tip: Make sure the characters you choose can be combined to make phrases and/or sentences. You can always use several of the longer sentences in the books.

ACTIVITIY 1 - Making Phrases
(age 4+, single/multiple player)
HOW TO PLAY 玩法
  1. Place all the cards face up in front of your child.
  2. Choose a card and have your child pair the card with one of the face up cards to make a phrase.
  3. If there is more than one child, have the next player choose another of the face up cards to make a phrase with the chosen card. (Alternatively, just have your child choose another face up card.)
  4. Continue until you run out of cards that make phrases with your chosen card.

ACTIVITIY 2 - Making sentences
(age 5+, single/multiple player)
HOW TO PLAY 玩法
  1. Place all the cards face up in front of your child.
  2. Have your child rearrange the cards to make a sentence.
  3. Write the sentence down on a white board or a sheet of paper.
  4. If there is more than one child, have the next player make another sentence with the same cards.
  5. Otherwise, have the child keep making sentences until they run out of options.
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY 玩法變化

If the children are older, instead of rearranging the cards, you can have them write directly on the paper. Have the children write as many sentences as possible with the character choices. Then, have the kids take turns reading out their sentences. If they read a sentence that someone else also came up with, everyone crosses that sentence out. Whoever has the most sentences that are not crossed out at the end wins the game.

HOMESCHOOLING TIPS

當孩子的學習看似停滯不前時,你只能繼續向前

也許這個建議看起來行不通,但很多時,孩子其實已將新字學進去了,只是需要時間去蘊釀罷了。

這時,一味的反覆練習只會產生反效果。信任基礎漢字500的設計吧:課程的編排已將必要的反覆練習埋在接下來的課文之中,只要你讓孩子繼續往前,他自然會有再練習那些生字的機會。

當時候到了,孩子自然會記認到那些生字。也許就是在那麼一個你毫無心理準備的一天,孩子出其不意地認出了所有生字,讓你驚喜和不解。

孩子需要的,只是讓知識在腦內蘊釀的時間。

Sometimes, you just have to move on.

It may seem counterintuitive, but sometimes, your child just needs time to marinate. Resist the urge to endlessly review and go over characters your child has trouble remembering. Trust that Basic Chinese 500 is written in a way that your child will have plenty of opportunities to come across these characters in later chapters.

When your child is ready, they’ll remember. In fact, one day, out of the blue, they’ll magically know the characters and you’ll wonder how or why, but all your kid needed was time.
