When it comes to Mandarin, i prefer sonshine to not just recognise the words but also know how to pair the individual words. I think it is fundamental to composing simple sentences.
That's why i did this activity with sonny. To revise the words sonshine learn from 四五快读, i took out some word cards and lay them randomly on the mat.
Sonshine had to pair the individual cards to make up meaningful words. It was a quick activity, i mean we had to, babydoll was crawling all over ready to destroy the cards- you can see her skinny fingers in the photo above!
