Sunny and hot, we all feel like to go out and have fun — yes, summer has officially come! If we ask a child what season s/he likes the most, I bet the answer would be summer.

Study A Chinese Children’s Poem of Summer

There are many little bugs in summer time. Let’s study a cute Chinese children’s poem, 虫虫飞 (Bugs Bugs Fly). In a summer evening when all the family are outside, enjoying the breeze and listening to the sound of the crickets, it is the time to read this poem.

虫虫虫虫飞飞飞,
fēi dào cǎo dì hē lù shuǐ
飞到草地喝露水;

To do this activity, first teach the kids the Chinese vocabulary of the common objects in summer. Then, let them go out and try to find all the items on the list.

Or when you go to the beach, teach the kids the Chinese vocabulary of some items that can be found on the beach and ask them to go for a scavenger hunt.

No matter what you do, try to add fun into the activities. Summer is a great time for learning Chinese. Let’s make it enjoyable.
