本週活動 This Week (4 of 30)

教師節活動

傳統注音班八年級余欣燕老師帶領班上學生主辦了教師節的活動。活動的流程刻意安排成高年級主導的拉近距離與跨班互動方式:

1. 先由T8兩位學生做開場
2. 接著讓參與學生看有關孔子的動畫影片,並從中出問題。
3. 之後由T8學生輪流就動畫內容提問,再由參與學生搶答,答對的獲得獎勵卷。

這次充份發揮長島文協「寓教於樂」的教學宗旨,讓問答變成趣味性的互動!「丘」和「秋」同音,夏之後是「秋」,所以孔子名「丘」是和「夏」之後的季節發音相同的字,於是就有同學答對了,因為那位同學回答「ㄑㄧㄡˉ」!至於孔子字「仲尼」也是以相似的方式提示同學「很重的泥土」唸作「重泥」!
4. 校長最後提出兩個趣味問題,答對的也有獎勵卷。
1)今天主持活動的是哪一班?
剛問完,馬上有同學說是八年級!
2)如果孔子還活著,請問他有幾歲了?
有同學回答說是兩千多歲了!厲害喔!

校長表示,這次安排由中高年級參與活動是很恰當的構想,大家也都比較能投入,謝謝協會支持!

感謝義工家長盧先生再次幫我們活動照相。
