Mandarin Glimpses in Grades 3 & 4
After learning about the Days of the Week, 3rd and 4th graders have been studying the Months of the Year and the Seasons. This has been their first introduction to identifying some Chinese characters and they have picked it up quickly!
To finish up the block, they enjoyed a puppet show based on the classic “Frog and Toad” story in which Frog tricks Toad into waking up from hibernation by ripping off several pages of his calendar early. The students were excited to be able to take turns performing the show afterwards.
