Next week is our China Alive Week!

 

Shanghai American School Elementary China Alive Week

 

On the week of May 3rd to May 6th, the Elementary School will be participating in our seventh China Alive experience.  The purpose of China Alive is to integrate the rich, diverse Chinese culture with SAS student learning.

 

Instead of going out a day trip for upper grades and a carnival day for lower grades, we are going to use the whole week Chinese time to have a new tryout for students’ cultural learning experience, inviting expert teachers to come share and demonstrate their wonderful expertise to our students.

 

Here is the schedule for the week:

 

May. 3rd (Tuesday) Chinese Fan Painting

 

May. 4th (Wednesday) Sugar Painting

(Experts are invited to each Chinese classroom)

 

May. 5th (Thursday) Dough Modeling

(Experts are invited to each Chinese classroom)

 

May. 6th (Friday)    Chinese Fun Game Day

(Chopstick fun, brush writing, Tangrams and shuttlecock kicking, and other Chinese games.)

 

We are very excited about offering this new experience to our students.

Xiexie!

Grade 5 learning update

尊敬的各位家长,

大家好!近两周,我们结束了单元测验,开始学习成语故事,通过对成语故事的学习,学生们可以开始了解中国历史,掌握怎么运用成语来提高自己的词汇量,学会把成语用到自己的写作中去。这周我们还会再学几个成语,孩子们可以分组表演出自己喜欢的成语故事,希望孩子们养成多读多看的好习惯,慢慢喜欢上中国的历史和成语。

谢谢大家的支持!

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks!
