Chinese Fun Class: Lesson on Body 我的身体

For your information, I've sold away my set of 二三快读 (Er San Kuai Du i.e. Chinese Fast Reading for age 2 and 3), so I will not be posting my Chinese lessons using the materials from this set anymore. It is a good starter set for young children to pick up Chinese words, but I sold it because I have other ideas for my girl.

In this lesson, I intend to do a summary on the body parts in Chinese with her. She had learned it from the previous lessons and also from her school. I searched the Internet for relevant worksheets but I found the resources are very limited. Thus I created it for her, you may download it by clicking the picture below:
You may print the image out, cut the words and let your kid label the picture.

To start the Chinese lesson, we sang the song 早安你好 by changing the word “早” to “好” as the lesson was conducted at night.
The lyrics go like this:

I asked her to name the body parts in Chinese. I then gave her the worksheet above, she was excited to see her favourite Barbie doll picture and asked me how to say "Barbie doll" in Chinese. she read the words one by one and pasted them on the picture.

She labeled the picture with the words that I had cut out from the worksheet above.

Her barbie doll picture labeled with the body parts in Chinese:

After completing the first worksheet, I gave her the second worksheet which is the nursery rhyme of 两只老虎 (Two Little Tigers). You may download it here:

There are 3 blanks to be filled up which have a matching picture. Cut out the words below the worksheet and let the kid paste them on the correct blanks.

The worksheet done:

We read the worksheet one time and sang the nursery rhyme. Learning Chinese words through singing nursery rhyme is really a very good way.  Kids will find it easier to recognise the words and they also find it interesting.

Lastly, she did a craft on tiger mask. The materials are as follow:

All you need are just a paper plate, two rubber bands, some cut out of the stripes and ears.

She pasted the stripes on the paper plate:
 We decided not to paste the ears so it is as described by the nursery rhyme “一只没有耳朵”, haha!

 The mask done and she quickly put it on to scare her younger brother.
 We had fun with the mask and sang the nursery rhyme a few times.

Note: Although this post is written mainly in English, the lesson was conducted in Chinese and she was speaking only Chinese during the lesson. I against speaking a mixture of more than one language in a sentence.
