Mandarin Motion Song and Story Time Wed 1st Feb 2017

Older students will be introduced to a play/musical this week that we will learn the first half of this year…we may keep the play a secret so that we can perform for the little kids when we are ready!

Little kids it’s the deep ocean for this story time!

We will read 大海里我最大  (dà hǎi lǐ wǒ zuì dà) ‘I’m the Biggest Thing in the Ocean’

This is  a great story for hearing how to use comparatives and superlatives in Mandarin, in a really funny story!

We will sing our 3 Jelly Fish song again (click on link for words, same tune as English version) this will get us singing our important 上 and 下 (Up and Down/On and Off etc) words!

And also sing this new lovely song ‘Time to Swim’ while we do an under the sea dance!  We don’t have a link to this song anywhere, but Aurora played it on the keyboard and sang along so that we could upload for you to sing along to at home!  Sorry, we didn’t have the tools to make a great sound recording!  But better than nothing!  We might record our dance of it this week to upload! Lyrics below:

海狮海豚海马水母   海狮海豚海马水母  游啊游,游啊游,多么逍遥, 游啊游, 游啊游,乐悠悠

hǎi shī hǎi tún hǎi mǎ shuǐ mǔ, hǎi shī hǎi tún hǎi mǎ shuǐ mǔ,yóu a yóu , yóu a yóu , duō me xiāo yáo , yóu a yóu , yóu a yóu , lè yōu yōu
