ACTIVITY OF THE WEEK - Write Chinese

Just like last week, this week’s activity is about writing characters again. Instead of a kinesthetic activity, we’ll be using different textures and materials.

Quick Tip: Your child may be tempted to just decorate and color the character. That is ok and a fun way for them to integrate the character into art.

HOMESCHOOLING TIPS

Use the Treasure Boxes to reinforce characters and build confidence.

The Treasure Boxes are a great resource because they use only the characters (with the exception of one or two new characters) your child has learned up through the end of that set. This is a good way to build confidence in your new reader as well as provide variety from the sets.

我們會經常為大家探討漢字和語文的課題。
要是你有特別的相關課題希望我們探討,歡迎您告訴我們。

We discuss Chinese language and culture related topics on a regular basis.
If you would like us to discuss certain topics about Chinese, please let us know.
