This activity may be a lot easier for older children so for your younger kids, you may have to stick to very easy characters or be prepared to be very hands-on.

HOW TO MAKE 準備

這是一個由孩子自己動手做的 學中文遊戲 ,所以你不需要預先做準備,只要把材料備妥就可以了。

Once again, the activity is the making so you don’t have to create anything in particular for your child other than providing the materials.

ACTIVITIY 1 - 造字遊戲 Creating Characters Activity
(age 3+, 1 player)
HOW TO PLAY 玩法
  1. 從書中抄一個字出來,或是從閱讀練習卡中選一張字卡。
  2. 用泥膠示範一次造字給孩子看。
  3. 由孩子用泥膠塑字。
  4. 重覆另一個字,直到你想孩子練習的字都做出來了。
  1. Have your child form a character using a combination of marshmallows and toothpicks. If your child is too young to write by themself, you can either provide cards from which they can copy, or make a model for them to copy.
  2. Once the character is formed, you can move on to other characters.
ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO PLAY 玩法變化

這是一個很簡單的 學中文遊戲 ,卻包含了各種變化。以下是一些例子:

Though this activity is at base, very simple, it is rife with possibilities. Here are some alternative ideas:

  1. 比賽誰先做好。
  2. 限時,看誰能做最多。
  3. 看誰能猜到最多另一個人所做的字。
  4. 用做好的字組句、組詞。
  1. See who can form a character first.
  2. See who can create the most characters within a time limit.
  3. See who can guess the most characters someone else makes.
  4. Form phrases or sentences with the created characters.

提示:要是孩子年紀太小,可以由你先做一個讓他照做,也可以讓他來猜你做出的是甚麼字。

Note: If your child is on the younger side, you may have to either form a character as a model for them to follow and copy, or you may have to make it for them and then have them “read” it.

My older kids were definitely better at this activity than my ~5 year old. After he made a few simple characters, he preferred to just stick random toothpicks into marshmallows and make shapes than follow directions. I was surprised at the complex characters my 8.5 year old created. (He may have been motivated by my saying that they could only eat the marshmallows they used in the characters.)

Can you guess what characters he made? (It’s easier to see your kids’ creations if you put them on a dark background.)

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

要每天不變、日復一地完成思展方程式課程看似是一個不可能的任務。這並不是因為課程很難,而是因為生活就是會有不少意想不到的事發生,讓你不得不要將學習中斷。怎麼辦呢?

就重新開始吧。中斷之後,選一天,就從那天開始吧。也許你會問:那要不要複習一下呢?要不要把沒跟課程學的生字補學呢?要的。

兩個關鍵的字:堅持

剛開始從新學習時可能你和孩子都會感到辛苦而想放棄。但是要堅持下去。你可以跟自己訂個目標:一星期就四天,或者五天。然後就按照自己所訂的計劃去做。很快你就會發覺:你完成整個課程了。

要完成思展方程式課程唯一的方法就是一課一課的學,沒有更容易方法、也不會出現其他困難的喲

Going through the Sagebooks curriculum consistently every day can often seem impossible. Not because the readers are difficult but because life often seems to get in the way. Sometimes, there will be days, or even weeks, when either you or your child just cannot seem to get it done. What should you do when that happens?

Just start again. Choose a day to begin and then begin again. Will you have to review some? Make up for lost characters? Yes.

Persist.

Your child will initially have a hard time with the re-introduction (and so will you). But keep going. Tell yourself that 4 out of 5 weekdays is your goal. Or 5 out of 7 days is your goal. Then do it. And soon, before you know it, you’ll be done.

If only it were harder and easier than that. There is no other way to get through Sagebooks except to actually go through Sagebooks.

我們會經常為大家探討漢字和語文的課題。
