Meet children at Shui Wei Elementary School
Nantou Shuiwei Elementary School is the one of schools in our Diversified Classes services. It is a school with its own characteristics. The school maintains a Japanese-style building with an ecological pool and the campus is surrounded by trees.
This was our first lesson this semester. Teacher Liu Peng led the picture book “Fifi is angry – very, very angry.” Through facial expressions, she allowed the children to understand different emotions and how to perceive and express their emotions.
There are many ways to express emotions
With the basic understanding of emotions, teacher Liu Peng led the children into the world of picture books. During the reading process, each child stared at the book with high spirit, and teacher guided children to practice how to express different emotion with verbal and nonverbal communication. When the teacher asked questions, the children were very enthusiastic and could not wait to show what they have learned.
One of the girls, she was very shy and shook her head to the teacher when asked. Then all others children cheered and encouraged her to express herself bravely. Some classmates even took the initiative to invite her to speak on stage. Accompanied by her partner, the girl was not only willing to stand on stage, but also shared her creations clearly. These children gave up their own chance to take the stage to focus on accompany their classmates to try touched us very much.
The words in the painting
After reading was over, teacher gave the children drawing paper, asked the children “what emotions are like?” and guided the children to draw their emotions on the paper. A child said, “Being angry is like a fire-dragon, and it will spew out big fire!” A child thought that emotion was like a tree, so he drew a harmonious tree and himself; Another child drew a little rabbit that represented her and put on colorful clothes for it. It turned out that the child was going out to play the next day, and the beautiful dressed rabbit on the drawing paper was her interpretation of “happy”!
