Mandarin Junior Beginners : Felicity Lu

This Wednesday afternoon the class made a "shrink dink" as part of their Mandarin language learning. 

The process involved students writing in language what they like to eat or drink. Colouring in a leaf shape made out of shrink material and writing their sentence on the leaf.

The teacher then shrunk the leaf form using heat and attached the leaves in correct order onto the key chain.

The completed key chain now contained their sentence in Mandarin. A great engaging activity enjoyed by everyone!
