Question

2 common themes of Chinese composition are:
1) Did something bad/something bad happened….feel bad, lesson learnt
2) Did something good….feel happy about it.

For the final paragraph, it is common to quote some Chinese phrase. So for the first theme, the usual phrases are
人非圣贤 孰能无过
一朝被蛇咬, 十年怕井绳

For second theme, the usual phrase is 助人为快乐之本 (only one??? can’t think of another).

Can suggest what other good phrases to be used with these 2 themes?

If you look at the picture composition so far, good deeds can roughly be categorized as the following

1 好邻居 (守望相助湖,适时的伸出援手)
2 好品德(诚实/路不拾遗/懂事孝顺)
3 关怀同学(友爱/帮助同学)
4 好公民 (见义勇为)

I am not expert. Just sharing what I can observe.

Yeah, you are right.
The pictures may be different, but the theme is still the same .
Boring. Isn’t it ?
I wonder if this somehow curbs the interest in learning to write interesting Chinese compo?
A bit of like “能交差就算了“ kind of mentality.

That’s why in picture composition, language will play a very big part. Compositions above 36, will cover content details not in the picture, that help to beef up the storyline. It could be a dialogue, a twist in the story etc

Children writing on topical composition has to be strong in both content and language. Very often, there is not enough content in the storyline, or worse understanding the title wrongly.

Mine is really like just writing to get over with it hence story only reflect the picture what is shown . Does not know how to write a “deeper” one.

For lower levels, you can just 把看到的,听到的,想到的,写下来。
But for higher levels, you need to add in some 感想,想象,

Actually I am clueless how should a compo be written, I see my child comp described all the thing in the picture yet only can score just pass of coz with 6-8 wrong words… So I am lost as what type of compo is expected in order to score better.
Now then I press the panic button as I see compo consist of 1/5 of the exam marks. Here I learnt something new today that we need to quote something in the final paragraph.
