First Lesson at WuXing Elementary School
Just finished my first lesson for a primary three class and felt it was really enriching although extremely noisy. I showed the kids some videos about Australian animals and had them colour the animals in my handout. I tried really hard not to speak chinese but inadvertently spoke a lot as I felt the kids had trouble understanding what I said. It could also be because I spoke to quickly and I have to remind myself in future lessons to slow down. I was busy setting things up that I did not take too many pictures. I will make up for it in my second lesson in an hour time. I think I should incorporate more videos in my presentation as I think kids retain more information from videos.
