Life long sharing . . .

Archive for November 15th, 2009

One of the Bao Bei’s teacher shared with me that during flash card session, they mainly focusing on flashing the cards and pronouncing the word accurately; no explanation of the word, where it’s used. The explanation comes later, and definitely not during the flash card session. Based on their experience, example given, if they show the card ‘书’ and teach by saying ‘书’, ‘书包的书’, the children tends to link(remember) the word to ‘书包’ instead of just the character ‘书’. When they are shown the word card, they tend to answer it’s  ‘书包’ instead of the single word ‘书’.

This is the same technique taught in my reading center last time. The franchiser also shared with me, when teaching new words, just flash, repeat, and say it loud and clear only. Explanation session should come separately later when going through the textbook, reading the paragraph made of the words.

So, after all, they are the same findings from two different reading schools 🙂

p.s. In Heguru, they arrange the Chinese flash card in another way. E.g. the flash in the following sequence:

开门

开心

明天

明白
