Dumplings!

 

The last thing I want to share about Chinese new year is the dumpling.

However, the majority of my student is too young to make the real dumpling. But I still don’t want them to miss the fun thing. So we use the clay to make a fake dumpling. Just to let the student experience how to make dumplings.

And I plan my third grade can have the real dumpling class.Before the class, I sent the receipt to class teacher to let them check with parents if their kids allergic or not. So I can make the stuffing. Next day, students make and eat their own dumpling.Even though, we need to prepare a lot. I think it is worth. The student like it very much.

Spring Festival Month

This month we focus on Spring Festival-Chinese new year.

这个月的课程主要集中在讲春节。

It is a very big culture item if I want to introduce.

如果要介绍春节有非常值得介绍的地方。但课程有限只能挑重点介绍。

So I use a chart to summarize the 15-days celebration. so will easy for them to memorize.

为了简单明了,我选择的一张表来包含所有的全部内容。让孩子能一下明白整个春节的脉络。也方便记忆。

Then I prepared 3 culture item to let students experience. The first one is easy for the first grade: coloring Fu characters. The second one is making the red envelope. The third one is making the dumpling.

当然动手做的事情,印象会极其深刻。所以文化体验主要选了三个项目:第一,涂福卡。(这个特别简单适合一年级的孩子们来完成)第二,是做红包。第三,是包饺子。当然对于一年级和二年级的孩子来说做一个真的饺子很有难度,但是为了让孩子体验这个过程,孩子们还是会开心的。

Cute Family Tree

最近我的语言课重点在家庭上。 让孩子们学会怎么用中文称呼家人。

Because it is related to student’s daily life. They show great enthusiastic when learning.

这与孩子们的生活息息相关。所以他们表现出极其大的兴趣。

However to enhance their memory. I decided to let them make family tree.

为了加强他们的记忆,我们觉得还是有必要做一下家庭树。让他们在做的过程中边记忆。

期待已久的圣诞假期终于来了~九月份已经开始计划到真正实施实在太飞快了!

I met my mom at LAX  airport. The moment I see my mom feel unreal. My mom is exciting, too. So we met our tour guide at the airport. Our 11-days trip start!

我跟麻麻成功的在洛杉矶的机场碰面。见到我妈的那一刻我觉得相当不真实。我麻麻相当的激动。然后我妈成功的与导游汇合。开始了我们长达11天的旅行。

Our schedule is LA→Las Vegas→LA→San Diego→ San Francisco→LA.

我们的行程是从洛杉矶到拉斯维加斯再回洛杉矶然后去墨西哥之城圣地亚哥再去旧金山最后又回到洛杉矶。是有一些些曲折的。

I have a memorable  time with my mom.~

这是一段相当难忘的旅行。

大峡谷真的非常的壮观,感叹大自然的鬼斧神工,自己的渺小。

We have super yummy seafood at Crab  House. If you go there, you need to go there.

对于吃货一般的我,怎么不能提一下吃的呢。这家海鲜馆就坐落在著名的渔人码头,脱团的我们只为满足一下味蕾。果然不负众望,但是钱包好痛。

我喜欢一直在路上的感觉。虽然很累,但是回过头看确实很值得细细品味。

To be continued….

未完待续…

这周末,Evan(住家的孙子)的学校举行了他们的音乐会。我和住家一起去给他加油。

This weekend,Evan (grandson of my host family)’s school has their music program-Christmas concert.We went there to support him as family.

 

音乐会时为了即将到来的圣诞节。孩子们打扮的很隆重,音乐会共演奏了5首曲子。我最喜欢的还是最后一首,孩子们表演圣诞老人,非常有趣。

The concert is for Christmas. The student all dressed up. They play 5 songs.My favorite is the last song.The student play the role as Santa. Very interesting~
