Write Chinese Characters! Right On!

Have you ever wanted to write in Chinese? Don't you think Chinese writing is lovely? I certainly do!!
2nd graders have started the basics of Chinese character writing. And as always, I am amazed how smart these little bulldogs are! Students will be learning to write using traditional Chinese children's notebooks. You can see a sample of what a traditional children's notebook looks like in the picture above.
Did you know that Chinese writing is an artform? That's right! It is called calligraphy and some artists spend their entire life mastering this lovely art. A family trip to the Honolulu Academy of Arts will unveil the most lovely Chinese calligraphy Hawaii has to offer!
