(Not so) Wordless Wednesday ~ Homework

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

Beautiful  Beckett is in kindergarten in the Mandarin Immersion program at Doss Elementary School. She has homework and one thing for sure most parents won't be helping with the answers! The family will become more proficient together digesting and absorbing this new culture and language. I expect Nana and Paw Paw will be grasping some new words and sounds too!

Tell me and I forget.

Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.

Interesting! I don't know what any of those characters mean but it would be great to learn.

Dorie,

One of our nieces is involved in this type of program in Colorado.  She has been for the past 3 years.  I can say thank you in Chinese, and that's it.  A

Homework for kindergartners. How things have changed. I remember my brother having nap time in kindergarten.

I never went to kingergarten, but my younger brother did, and don't remember anything about homework. Your picture reminded me of when I was in a three-month immersion course in 1969 for Mandarin... practicing my characters.

Good afternoon Dorie - I wouldn't know  any of that but it would be interesting to learn from a young child.

Foreign languages are so much easier to learn when young.  Lucky Beautiful Beckett.

Hi Dorie- I am in awe of BB because I took Chinese for two summers when I was a kid and I did just ok. I love that some schools are teaching another language.

Morning Dorie.

To be bi-lingual would be such a blessing.  Won't happen to me, but I'm sure it will benefit BB in the future.

What a wonderful program. It's the time to learn languages - so much easier at Beckett's age.
