Zhǎo ya zhǎo ya zhǎo péngyǒu

zhǎodào yīgè hǎo péngyǒu

jìng gè lǐ ya wò wòshǒu

nǐ shì wǒ de hǎo péngyǒu

Find, find a friend

Found a good friend

Greet and shake hands

You are my good friend

Story time in Chinese:

Polar Bear Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? is a sequel of sorts to Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (3:41 min):

If the Polar Bear story is too complex for your child, “Kiss Kiss” is a good alternative that also features lots of animals

 

Activity: Making Homemade Play Dough

Today’s activity plan is being posted on Friday, April 3. This video shows a way to make play dough with corn starch and body wash and a tiny bit of food coloring. The ratio is about 2:1 of corn starch to body wash. (3 min)

If you have food coloring, feel free to add it and review colors in Mandarin Chinese with this video.
