有趣的我!

Hou Jing (Senior Lecturer, KLC International Institute)

Session completed.

For: Parents and children

想了解孩子的内心世界?深入解读他们的情绪、探索他们的想法、了解他们对世界的认知和理解?帮助孩子进行有意义的华文认读、书写?请坐下来跟孩子一起制作一本小书。小小一本书帮助孩子学会自我认知、乐于用华文表达自己,帮助家长理解孩子、更有效的与孩子沟通。这些小小书还为孩子的成长留下深刻的足迹!来吧,就从“有趣的我”这个主题,让我们开始这个有趣的自我探索的旅程吧!

Book-making is an effective way to empower and encourage young children to express themselves, and better understand how they feel, what they think and how they live their everyday lives. Children will learn topics they can create a book with and guiding questions they can use, and you can get to understand your children better through this little book exercise! So bring your children down so they can have fun making a book they can share with their friends!
