My DS is currently reading the "小屁孩日记(1-6年级)". Book 1 and book 2 are with HYPY, easier for lower P. My DS enjoys reading it. Do take note that this series is NOT the translated version of "Diary of a Wimpy Kid".

小屁孩日记-一年级屁事多(注音版)
小屁孩日记-二年级趣事多(注音版)
小屁孩日记-三年级怪事多
小屁孩日记-四年级乐事多
小屁孩日记-五年级烦事多
小屁孩日记-六年级妙事多
“小屁孩日记”系列图书采用日记的形式,记录了小学一年级到小学六年级学校生活的趣事。作品以生动而幽默的笔触描写了小学生有趣的校园生活,细腻而真实。

Hi parents who are using this book,

You can also download the app to playback the pronunciation of the words in the dictionary. The app also clearly indicates the verbs (动词) and counters (量词).

As for essay, you may want to try out Primary Chinese Graded Writing series (阶梯作文). This series is categorised into 3 levels -- basic, intermediate, and advanced. This series will help build the foundation of essay writing as each of the levels focus on different components of the written language.

Image

Basic -- sentence structure, punctuations, learning how to expand sentences, etc...
Intermediate -- learning how to write intro & conclusion, description of feelings using the 5 senses, paragraphing
Advanced -- usage of idioms in compositions, dramatising, etc...

阶梯作文 is good. I am using it for my lower primary students. Very structured and easy to understand.

For leisure reading, you may also want to introduce Chinese picture books to your children. Although picture books may have lesser words than storybooks, they are good for language learning as they always get children thinking and talking about what happens in the book, thus, developing their language, literacy and higher order thinking skills.

The use of picture books will also give you more flexibility in terms of how you can use them. Below are just some suggestions from us on how to use picture books:

1. For enjoyment, you could simply just read off the book. However, always draw the attention back to how the illustration has been illustrated / how the text has been arranged. This can help your child develop visual literacy.

2. To inject some learning objectives into this reading activity, you could try to get your child to tell you the story based on the pictures that he/she sees. This trains your child's higher order thinking and speaking. By doing so, it also develops visual literacy in your child as he/she infers from visual cues and also acquire new vocabulary as he/she tries to speak.

Local author and illustrators Lee Kow Fong (aka 阿果) and Low Joo Hong (aka 椰子) have penned and illustrated a series of pictures for children. You may want to check them out. Really cute characters and simple sentences that will not put off children who find the Chinese language challenging.
