As Preschool Chinese teachers, we need to create opportunities for children to practise their Mandarin in daily life and encourage them to actively use the language.
Believing that children are naturally curious and filled with wonder, Ms Han Guirong provides opportunities for her students to explore the world through hands-on activities. They get to interact with one another and carry out experiments under her guidance and careful scaffolding. To further extend the children’s learning, she also asks open-ended questions in class and models a sense of wonder for the world around for the children.
Ms Han is a passionate Chinese Language teacher who puts in the effort to draw the links between the content of her lessons with the children’s everyday experiences. She leads children into discussions and instils a love of learning in them through quality interactions with appropriate and interesting resources.
Her children-centred lessons are filled with enriching learning experiences and cultural elements. These foster the love of learning Chinese language and culture in her young students.
