This coming week we will be focusing on shapes; their attributes, names, and where they are found in the world around us. If you have time, encourage your child to find and then draw or take a picture of a shape somewhere in their house. They can then share these with the class.
We will be learning circle, square, rectangle and triangle in Chinese. Some of the more difficult ones to remember (in English) are : rhombus, hexagon, trapezoid and parallelogram.
We will also be talking about months of the year and seasons as we watch the leaves start to fall. Review with them the months in order, or ask them "What's the month/season after____?"
Chinese vocabulary will be shape words, how to ask about shapes, and memorzing the characters for the different colors.
