Great news! The leveled readers from the BYU Chinese Flagship program have arrived. These books have been specifically written to teach the Utah first grade core along with appropriately difficult and useful Chinese. We have enough to let each child take these books home weekly. Please take good care of and use them as much as possible. Send them back to school every Friday with homework.
From now on, our Chinese curriculum will be a combination of these books and the Better Chinese program (from which all students now have workbooks).
Every Monday I will send home a list of the words we’ll be using in these stories. These words will also be recorded on the lingt website so you can hear and practice them. Every Friday we will have a quiz on these words. Except for the two on the list that are bold, it will be recognition only (they do not need to know how to write them all, but to be able to circle them or connect them to a matching picture) . They will be asked to write only the two in bold.
Please email or comment on the blog if you have any questions.
Thanks!! (xie xie)
