The Transportation for my work in Lila 我工作的交通方式

As one of  my most difficult factor  to work in Forest Lake is the Transportation.Forest Lake is small city with population under 20000.Not like metropolis,The public transportation system is as not common as in the rural area in Ethiopia.Not easy to catch a bus in the morning time.As I live in apartment ,I will not likely to bother Colleagues.

Fortunately ,I could use the Trail system for Biking,which is just paved for cyclists  from Hugo to North Branch,I can use a shore part of this bike road.Thanks for Principal Shannon sending back my folding bike.Those two month I used this quiet biking road come and go back from apartments to 2 Lila campus with 30 minutes every working days.Some time I also get a second hand  gloves from main campus,that helped me a lot when I was riding the bike.





How to teaching by Game 如何开展游戏教学

After several weeks teaching Chinese in Lila,I felt most students may get famuliar with my teacher style.But Some times they do not to eager to answer my questions.I realized dayliy way  for teaching is a letter boring.

I try to use more games to make class feel active.For example,I use Mid-Autumn day for Culture introduction class,Some students know the stories of ChangE Ben Yue,So I asked them to play the role in myth to let them make a dialog use new words.For younger students in Grade 6,I used HOT POTATO to make them join with our practice .One students stand in the middle of Circle,I played music,they passed the tennis ball to each other,when stop,the guesser could not find the ball holder ,He or she have to be ask and answer the Chinese question in Chinese.

I believe this way may make them felt happy while practice more Chinese dialog.






My Class Management in Lila 我在湖区语言学校课堂管理


I work as a Chinese teacher in Lila Heasdwaters Campus from 18th.August.2016.My duty was teaching 3 classes Mandarin from 5th to 7th class, except looking after a speacial students in Grade 2 in Lila lower school from 7:45-10:00.

The biggest Challenge for teaching  here is the Management of class.Students in their age is having their own judgment and would like to show their mind,but their  behavior brought  some problems to me at the beginning time.I had to stop to make them quiet ,of course it waste our  class time.

To deal with this problem,Firstly,I borrowed class rules from Lower school,put the rules in front of the classroom to make everyone know what they should do,what they should not to do in Mandarin class.Secondly,I try to make more game time to make them do practise,most time they also would like to make competetion with each other.Thirdly,after talk with Principal Shannon Peterson,I realized how to reduce their chance to make mistake,for instance,Do not let them drinking water at the class time;make a staid seats for them.After several time ,the class become better than before.
