Here's this week's glimpse into what's happening in and out of our classrooms in the day school! These feature lessons, activities, centers, and saunters from a different classroom each week.
Today's feature: Explorer’s Weekly Mandarin Lessons
Students practice their names and other simple phrases in Mandarin Chinese. In addition to exposure to another culture’s language, students get to pretend they are in an actual Chinese classroom! Each student gets a chance to be class leader and talk to his or her friends in Chinese. Kinesthetic learning is brought into the mix as kids use movement to understand and learn the unique pronunciation of each Chinese syllable. Students also learn through songs and games!
