Ms. Sharon Tian’s 8th grade Chinese class visits WDES kindergarten classes

Weddington Elementary School kindergarten students listening intently while being taught a few words in Chinese.

On Friday, December 14, 2012, Weddington Middle School 8th graders in Ms. Sharon Tian’s Chinese class, visited the kindergarten classes at Weddington Elementary. The 8th graders read a Chinese Christmas story, sang songs in Chinese and taught the kindergarten students words in Chinese (hello, good bye, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year). The WDES kindergarteners also learned how to count from 1-10 in Chinese.

Ms. Tian shared Chinese Christmas cultures and traditions with the WDES students. The kindergarteners and their teachers had a wonderful time and thanked the Weddington Middle School students and their teacher for sharing their knowledge of the Chinese culture.
