    Tonight, please work on your pop-up family projects for 20 minutes.  Here's some useful things to do:

    1. Upload your images here (if you haven't already)

    2. Spend time working on your draft.  Not sure how to type in Chinese on your draft?  Follow these directions.  Can't get the typing to work?  Write it out on paper the old-fashioned way! 

    Monday, April 1st (due Tuesday, April 2nd)

    No homework.  MCAS tomorrow!

    Friday, March 29th (due Monday, April 1st)

    News - Christy & Amy

    Next week you will be making pop-up family trees like this:


    For the project, you will need five photos or drawings of your family members.  If you have fewer than five members in your immediate family, include other relatives. If you have more than five members in your immediate family, you may include all of them (if you choose). It is OK to include family members who are no longer alive.  Pets can also be included as family members. You may include yourself or not.

    This weekend, please gather the photos you need.  I recommend taking new photographs for the project instead of using old photographs.  Here's what makes a good photo:

    • Shows the entire person (head to toe)
    • Good lighting

    If you can, please upload your photos here.  If not, just upload them to your Google Drive.  I will show you how to move them to the folder later.

    If you are choosing to draw your family members, please start your drawings this weekend. Stick figures are not acceptable. Your drawings need to reflect your best effort.

    Green Sheet

    For tonight's green sheet please pick any 6 words from the picture page and your family job sheet.  If you pick some of the jobs that you don't need to learn to write (like 律师 and 护士) it is OK to use just the pinyin with tones for those ones.  

    Note - You need to pick 6 words, not just six characters.  For example 工程师 is one word.

    Hint - Pick the ones you don't know yet.

    Classwork for Tuesday, March 26th

    Hi 6th Graders!  I am absent today.  Here's what to do:

    1. Christabel and Katie should present their news reports (Maddie & Irene, it is your turn tomorrow)
    2. Split into these groups: C Block Groups  F Block Groups
    3. Each group will be researching a new word.  Group #1 you are researching 律师.  Group #2 you are researching 工程师. Group #3 you are researching 商人.  Group #4 you are researching 运动员. 
    4. Each group should make a one shared Google Slides presentation to introduce their word.  That means one presentation per group and you all work on it.  Don't make one each! 

    Here's what to include:

    • The character
    • Pinyin
    • Stroke order
    • The origin of the character
    • Tricks you might use to remember the character (make this up)
    • Free Words (if there are any)

    Here's some websites to help you:

    Written Chinese (type the character into the search box, hit enter, and then click "learn more" to see stroke order.  There is a list of words that use that character if you scroll down, but remember, it is only a free word if you already know both of the characters already.)

    Hanziyuan (Type the character in the box and click the green button.  It will show you ancient versions of the character with an explaination of the character on the left side of the screen).

    Can't figure out how to type in Chinese on your iPad?  Ask another group or try this website instead (make sure you follow the directions on this website).


    This is the first time you have done this activity, so I know you will have lots of questions about what to do.  But, please just get as far as you can on your own.  I would like to see how much you can do independently.  If you finish, study for the next quiz.

    Write down what you hear.  Any piece of paper is OK.   It's OK if you aren't sure.  Just take your best guess. Don't forget to bring in your paper so we can check it.  The video says to bring it in on Monday, because it is an old video from a past year.  You need to bring it in on Friday.
