My First Chinese Words Teacher’s Guide (English) is a comprehensive guide to teaching the My First Chinese Words series. This guide has been developed to assist teachers in the planning, development and execution of engaging, interactive lesson plans. Each lesson starts with essential questions to facilitate backwards design and targeted lesson-planning. Clear lesson objectives focus class time. Fun age-and level-appropriate activities, games and arts-and-crafts activities are designed to engage students in active learning, wherein students are motivated to speak, move, role-play, work as a team, reason logically, and more. These activities encourage students to bring their own families, backgrounds and experiences into the Chinese classroom and show them how they can incorporate their Chinese learning into their daily lives. Additional vocabulary, songs and rhymes are also specifically matched to each lesson theme and vocabulary.
