Report Cards Are Coming

Report cards are on the way! And what a proud Chinese teacher I am! Our LJA keiki Chinese certainly try their best in Chinese class.

3rd graders are really working up a sweat learning new dialogues on greeting friends at different times of the day and making apologies. Now keiki know what to say if they accidentally step on someone's toe! 对不起 - I'm sorry.

2nd graders are digging into flashcards to help with memorizing those pesky new words! Keep it up and you will have all your new words memorized!

Get ready for 1st graders to learn how to use chopsticks as well as say this fun word in Chinese. So the next time you are at L & L and the waitress says chopsticks or fork you can answer chopsticks in Chinese!

Just in case you wanted to make another panda cupcake I included this cute panda picture. Anybody making panda cupcakes out there? Let me her from you!

Remember...practice what you know and see you in the classroom!

Celebrate in Style!

Students enjoyed decorating panda cupcakes. The recipe is easy! Chocolate discs for eyes and ears. Candy eyes and black gel icing for mouth and nose. What a fun and nontraditional way to celebrate the New Year. Three students even came back to school and said they were able to successfully reproduce these yummy Chinese American treats at home with their families.

KHON visited our classroom. 3rd graders hammed it up with smiles, giggles, and lots of Chinese chit-chat for the camera. Start looking on KHON for our commercial.
