We are reading ‘Go away big green monster’ in our primary classes. After building the monster’s face, we have to make each part go away by saying ‘走开!’ (Zǒu kāi!)
This colour song and face song will help children to make the links as we read the story. There’s also this other groovy colour song by Basho and Friends to tap your feet to, to help remember colours! This story also introduces students to the grammatical concepts of possession (的), measure words and changing 二 to 两 when counting – connections for the future!
