We learnt to recognise the words . Teacher draw her handprint on the back of the word card and show it to us.

She also draw a doll on the whiteboard and add in her hands after teaching us the word "SHOU"

Then she ask if anyone is intertest to have their "Jiao" drawn on the paper - we all DID! :)

Lao Shi asked us what is needed before the doll can go out to play with us! Then add in her legs.

After we learn to recognise the words , we sang songs then requires actions like clapping ur hands and nodding ur hand. I had fun.

Mummy left me with another teacher and went for breakfast with daddy.

I did pasting of flowers on a piece of paper and was also giving 2 word cards for me to revise at home!
