在改功課時，我發現很多小朋友沒有交感恩節的作文。在班上我跟小朋友說那是“挑戰”，有交的小朋友可以多一張貼紙。這次我改變一下戰略，我把“我的Winter break” 和 “我的New Year Resolution” 兩篇作文跟功課釘在一起。頁面上有一些用詞是我們上課時有學到的，請小朋友試試看，但不是每一個詞語都要用到。我刻意找一些小朋友比較有意見的題目，希望他們寫起來不會那麽困難。不會寫的字，用英文都沒關係。我希望小朋友能盡量表達他們的想法。謝謝！
I realized a lot of students did not turn in “Thanksgiving” essay. I told the kids it’s a challenge and anyone who turns it in would get a sticker. This time, I am attaching two essays – “My Winter break” and “My New Year’s Resolution” as part of homework. There are some phrases on the page that we taught and I would like the kids to try, but they don’t have to use every phrases. I intentionally picked topics that the students would have opinion of. For the words they don’t know, they can even write in English, but I like them to try to express their ideas fully.
Most kids did well in the quiz for Lesson 4. Thank you.
We will have three weeks of no Chinese school. I hope you have a good holiday and see you in January 7th.
