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。

家長大會

感謝家長們的出席,家長會在全年,為小朋友及家長們規畫出一系列與傳統文化及習俗有關的活動,會在不同的節慶時在學校舉辦。非常感謝家長們熱心參與,方讓我們的孩童們可以歡樂中學習中華文化。茲附上年度計畫,供家長們參閱,家長會非常歡迎家長們的參與與協助,如對任何活動有興趣,請隨時與家長會聯絡。

Teacher Training Seminar

The Teacher Training Seminar hosted by Assistant Principal, Anne Hsieh, was a success! There were six parents joined this session. The interactions and experience sharing was especially valuable. One of the parents shared her feedback: “I appreciate this opportunity to have participated in this training session, and given the chance to hear from experienced teachers who teach Chinese language in America for many years. I also learned some interactive games which I can do to make learning more fun for the kids. During this training, everyone exchanged their own challenges with the Chinese learning journey for their kids. I highly recommend this seminar for the parents.”

The other teacher assistant who attended also shared: “The concept of ‘noone is left behind’, along with classroom management, and class guidance, these are the main goals for this session. Thanks to Ms. Anne Hsieh for sharing her teaching experience, guiding us to think outside of the box, empathize with our children, gain trust from them, so we can build a happy learning environment.

Mid-Autumn Festival falls on September 13 this year. CCALI Puppet Show Team prepared a show to tell the legendary story of when there were ten suns in the sky thousands of years ago, and Hou-Yi was the hero that shot down nine of them to relieve the people from burning hot weather, and why his wife Chang-Er flew to the moon. The school hopes to bring some cultural fun to begin this year’s Chinese school. Huge thanks to all the parent volunteers for preparation, the show, and photography.
