weekly 听写 prep/revision

Postby winwater » Wed Aug 05, 2015 3:12 pm

Hi, my kid is in Pri 4.

Looking for another Pri 4 child to learn and revise Chinese TING XIE and MO XIE together once a week FOC.

Have tried this during the June holidays with 2 different kids and works like clockwork.

Realized when 2 are revising together with a slight competitive angle, they remember much better and write more dedicated-ly.

I'm at Bishan, willing to travel to nearby places and bring my kid along.
60-90 min on the day before Ting Xie day is good enough for me.

If you have a kid who drags his/her feet in prep for Ting Xie and the bore of repeating writing of words, let me know, perhaps I could help and do it together with my kid.

Thanks, all the best. :smile:

Good idea! It is always more effective to learn as a group. But wouldn't it be better to look for kids in the same school as your child? Different schools have different word lists for Chinese tingxie.

It's ok, my kid is willing to take on another spelling list, thus thought of the idea.
Thanks for the heads up mate.

Many schools create Whatsapp groups for parents of children in the same classes. It might be better for you to use those groups to source for other parents who may like your idea of getting study buddies for their kids.

Study buddies, btw, are the secret to academic success that surprisingly few people know about. It can make a world of difference to a student's attitude to learning.

Another tip: If your child has a smartphone, teach him/her to READ the tingxie/moxie/spelling words and phrases and record them on the smartphone. Then let him/her playback the words to test him/herself. My daughter practices this :) And you are right... I'm really a hands-off parent. :lol:

But you have given me an idea. Combine the two! Get your kid to skype with her classmate and then do tingxie and moxie for each other online! They can take turns to either be the tester or the student. Saves on your travelling. Also very fun for the kids.

With my crappy Chinese, I was the sparring partner for my kids.
We would break the mo xie passage into parts and then we would recite alternate parts, and then switch over, and then finally the complete para. Coz when I recite my part, they actually have to also know if it is correct or not. so they learnt thru trying to catch my mistakes
It kinda worked quite well then.

I challenge my girl to see who can recite and write out the Mo Xie sentence faster. Or get my younger son to act out in his comical way what the sentence is describing and we all have a good laugh. Both methods motivate her to remember it faster so works well for us.
