SHARING SYNOPSIS

A child’s ability to absorb information from their surroundings is astounding and has often been compared to a sponge. Children enjoy art and craft, and what better way for them to learn Chinese than through fun activities? These activities will help children visualise the words and are a great way to cultivate young learners’ interest in Chinese.

This session aims to explore interesting ways of teaching young children Chinese. It also aims to motivate children to express themselves in Chinese through art activities. Patrick Yee will suggest a few activities that parents can easily replicate at home. He will also demonstrate how to create the necessary materials through the use of simple skills such as drawing and cut and paste.

This workshop is organised in collaboration with the Singapore Book Council as part of the Asian Festival of Children’s Content.

摘要

孩子学习语言的能力是惊人的,他们就像海绵,可以吸取大量的知识。孩子们都很喜欢涂抹和画画。本着这个概念,作家余广达将教导家长如何利用图画轻松地引起孩子对学习华语的兴趣。

通过这个分享会,家长也会动手创作,绘制一些简单的教材来引导孩子说华语。

本工作坊由国家书籍发展理事会联合主办。
