The key steps to raising a multilingual child include speaking in the target language consistently, listening to music and audiobooks, building a home library, and doing fun, hands-on activities!
宝石 (jewel) stickers are a fun way to improve eye-hand coordination, strengthen fine motor muscles, and develop pre-writing skills for kids!
Number and color pattern learning with recycled paper rolls and a paper towel holder! This is a fun and educational activity with items you probably have at home!
画一个星星给我 (Draw Me a Star) is a beautiful picture book by Eric Carle. We read this book and then applied what we learned! Both kids had a blast dot painting, and I helped my daughter draw & cut the stars. Every star turned out to be beautiful and unique!
Water painting is a fun outdoor activity for learning sight words, such as Chinese characters! To review words related to rain, my daughter traced each character in chalk raindrops with a wet paintbrush.
Rain stick sensory bottles are a wonderful auditory, visual, and tactile learning experience for kids! They are easy and fun for kids to make on their own!
Reflections on our kids' trilingual schedule for 2017-2018: Balancing English, Chinese, and Korean requires consistency and flexibility!
