Recently, a situation arose that my dd#2 is able to attend a simplified Chinese weekend school near my house. So, we sent her there last Saturday. I figure it is time she learns simplified Chinese and start doing more writing. I also want to outsource parts of the Chinese instruction now. She got bumped up a grade to 7th grade after cold reading 7th grade textbook for the teacher. After the first class, the teacher said that dd#2 was the best student in class. So, that’s good to hear. The following are some pics of the textbooks that the class uses.
Since dd#2 had spent much more time reading than writing before, she is working on being able to write out the entire story as I read along the text. I print out character worksheets of every unique characters with stroke sequence for her to practice. It is coming along and she should get basic writing up to speed fairly quickly after a couple of chapters.
Otherwise, she is reading Chinese comic books every day and now seems to have little problem reading the first book of Harry Potter in Chinese.
