小快乐little happiness

 

小快乐三:那天我教完小秋bingo拼字游戏,结束后她起身走出去几步之后又走回来,笑着对我说:“我喜欢你是我的老师。”我想,她一定不知道我听到这句话有多么的暖心。

小快乐四:小卡是我们班一个超级有个性的女生,一侧头发剃光,每次发给她作业她都直接瞪着你挡着你的面把纸拧成一团丢掉。脾气很怪也很糟糕,尽显叛逆。而且有一次,她直接跟我说我不是老师,我说你为什么这么说,她说你不是我们班真正的老师,叶老师才是。我当时听到这句话心是凉的。她也从来没有叫过我老师。直到有一次,她人不舒服,让我帮她把午餐拿到食堂。我去接她的时候,她张开双臂,给了我 一个大大的拥抱,并说:“谢谢你帮助我。”后来她开始叫我朱老师了。而且有事没事就会抱抱我。我想每个孩子都是多面的。都需要一个切入点走进他们的内心。

Little happiness three  :Some day I did intervention with AUtumn about Bingo game . After that, she told me, ‘ I like you are my teacher .’ I just feel so warm. I think I am recognized by my students.

Little happiness four :Carrera is a  girl who has her own characters. She has bad temper and she is jwired. When I hand out her homework on her desk , she just rolls into a mass by kneading . And there is a day which really impress me that she said I was not a teacher. It was really hurt me, then I said I was, and ask why. But she insisted I was not a real teacher ,just a help teacher. And she never call me Zhu laoshi. Until  one day, she felt sick and let me put her lunch bag in the cafeteria. When she came back,she gave me a big hug and said ‘thanks for helping me ‘. It was unforgettable for me. After that,she called me Zhulaoshi. And smile to me when she met me. I think each child is multidimensional, we need to go into their heart.

小快乐

小快乐一:那天冉小美过生日,叶老师让同学每人给她写一张纸条送给她。小冉就给我看一个纸条,上面写着“your pretty.  From unknown”。小美很开心的说,我知道这是小卫写的。我问你怎么知道的,她说我就是知道,因为他爱我。

小快乐二:我还记忆犹新,在大学上双语教法课,数学教小数加减法的时候,要用英文念十分位百分位千分位发ths的时候,口型有多么夸张。我以为是中国人发这个音很困难。直到昨天我们在上数学课,我听到了外国小朋友念ths这个音,口型更夸张。而且一帮学生在那里表情超拧巴的在互相面对面比谁发的对。他们肉嘟嘟的脸加上夸张的表情,真的超级好笑。我当时没忍住就笑出声音来,他们见我笑了就念的更来劲了。

小快乐三:那天我教完小秋bingo拼字游戏,结束后她起身走出去几步之后又走回来,笑着对我说:“我喜欢你是我的老师。”我想,她一定不知道我听到这句话有多么的暖心。

Little happy 1: It was Danielle’s birthday, and Ms Yeh let everyone write a note send to her. Danielle showed me a note which write ‘YOUR PRETTY,from Unknown’. Danielle was very happy  and said she knew it was Braydon sent to her. I asked why ? She said she just knew that, cause he loved me.

Little happy2: I remember that when I was at bilingual class about decimal additions and subtractions ,and during the class, we should pronounce tenths, hundredths, thousandths, it’s hard. And our  mouthes are so exaggerate. I thought it is hard for Chinese students.But actually , it is hard for Americans, too. Their mouthes are more funny. And some students stare at each other and open their big eyes and big mouthes to pronounce ths. It’s really amuse me. I burst into laughter. When they see my laughing, they still don’t stop and keep speaking it.

一段对话引起的思考A thought form a dialogue

那天忆秋跟我在走廊里走。我们的走廊是一排红色格子一排蓝色格子。忆秋走的时候迈的步子很大,不踩蓝色格子,只踩红色格子。我问你为什么这么走?她说:“我和乔佳在做一个游戏,她只能踩蓝色格子,我只能踩红色格子。”我当时觉得她们好可爱,我问;“但是她现在看不到,你可以随便走。”她说;“不,她们已经约定好了。”

约定就是约定。小孩子都能如此坚守信用,做一个如此自律的人,深深被触动。我记得在我小学的时候,有一次我的一个同学让我在一个地方等她,她去去就回。后来我就一直在那里等她,10分钟,20分钟,40分钟,一个多小时之后她出现了,她好惊讶我还在那等她,她说她刚刚在家里都吃完饭了才想起我来,她当时感动到夸我真讲信用。从此我们成为了很要好的朋友,至今都是。

信任,在人与人之间的关系中是多么重要的联结因素。但越来越大的我们,却越来越难去相信一个人。我们生怕受到伤害,以至于我们很难再掏出心窝去真诚对待一个人,为他无回报的做任何事,我们首先想到的是自己。

再者,我想到的是,信任的前提是自律。慎独方能做到自律。即使一个人的时候,我们也要做到端正自己的行为。我想,美国人在这点上做的就比我们好,他们不会去贪社会的小便宜,会遵守诺言,会慎独,所以整个社会风气是人人都很谦让,很有礼貌,很文明。

One day, Autumn walked with me along the hallway. There are one red grid and blue grids on the hallway.Autumn took big steps when her walking, and she just tread on red grids but blue grids. I asked her why she walked like this ?She said:”Georgia and I are playing a game,  she can only tread on blue grids, and I can only tread on red grids.” I think they are so lovely, I asked:”But she can’t see now, you can walk as you like.” She said:”No, It’s a promise.”

Promise is a promise. Little children can also stick on their words, they behave themselves, and I am deeply moved. I remembered when I was in primary school, my classmate let me waiting for her at some place, she came back later. Then I waited her for 10 min, 20min, 40min, then she appeared after 1 hour, she was so shocked that I still wait for her. She just forgot me. She was really moved by my keeping the promise. From then on, we became very good friends, it really is.

Trust, which is a very important factor to connect the relationship with each other. But actually, we increasingly become more difficult to trust others when we turn older. We are afraid that we may get hurt, so that we are less likely to treat others with sincerity, or do anything for others without returning, we first think about ourselves.

What’s more, the base of trust is self-discipline. And the base of self-discipline is Shendu which spirit of the Subject-introverted Mind in the Confucian Philosophy. If everyone can keep the promises, behave themselves,shendu,  the society will be like more self-effacing, more polite,and more civilized.

花栗鼠和小鳄鱼嘟巴 A chipmunk and Duba

10200b9cd8c13f1ae30d9f39b26e3b72

Baby crocodile Duba didn’t like talking. Sometimes Duba hid on bush and didn’t wanna see anybody. A chipmunk was coming to find Duba, and yelling for a long time, but there was no one . Berries in bush were ripe, red, sour and sweet. The chipmunk knew that Duba likes berries most,  so there was right to find him in the bush.’You are really here!’ The chipmunk drilled down the bush, and watching Duba sitting here and eating berries. The chipmunk said: ‘If you don’t like talking,then let us eat berries.’ The chipmunk sat near the Duba, and they ate so much berries that their mouses turned red.

(小鳄鱼嘟巴不喜欢说话。有时,嘟巴把自己藏在灌木丛里,谁也不想见。花栗鼠来找嘟巴,喊了好半天,屋里一点动静也没有。灌木丛里的浆果熟了,红红的,酸酸甜甜的。花栗鼠知道嘟巴最喜欢吃浆果,到灌木丛里找他准没错。“原来你真的在这里啊!”花栗鼠钻进了灌木丛,看到嘟巴正坐在那里吃浆果。花栗鼠说:“如果不喜欢说话,哪咱们就来一起吃浆果吧。”花栗鼠坐到嘟巴的身边,两个人把嘴吃的红彤彤的。)

Q:  Why Baby crocodile Duba ate berries by himself?

(问题:为什么小鳄鱼嘟巴要一个人吃浆果?)

A: Because he didn’t like talking.

(回答:因为他不喜欢说话。)

This is an article which I tested my students’ level of Chinese reading. I am really moved by this story. This is a terribly easy story but I am deeply absorbed in chipmunk’s perseverance to finding his friend Duba.I don’t know why he didn’t like talking, he should eat berries lonely. But I am shocked that my students almost answer this question without thinking. Maybe it is a children’s world.  Duba and the chipmunk just like my students, with same age, same emotion, same logic. They are cute and pure, so does their friendship, so does their world.

(这是一篇我用来测我学生中文阅读水平的文章。我很感动。这是一个极其简单的故事但是我却深深地被花栗鼠去找他朋友嘟巴的坚持不懈所吸引。我不知道为什么他不喜欢说话,就要一个人吃浆果。我很惊讶我的学生大多数都能毫不迟疑的回答这个问题。也许这就是孩子的世界。花栗鼠和小鳄鱼就像是我的学生,一样可爱,有一样的年纪,有一样的感情,有一样的逻辑。他们的友谊和世界线他们一样可爱纯粹。)

Time goes so fast that I have gone through my childhood years ago. I miss the childish age which is full of smiles, hugs, imagination, friends, happiness. When I came to this elementary school, I remembered what is like when I was a little girl. ‘Too young too simple.’ Cause we are young, we have chance to design our futures and do a lot of things we like and just do one thing we want like a fool.  Be simple is a big wisdom though we are getting older and older. ‘Stay hungry, stay foolish.’like a baby, like a poor guy, just to insist on doing one thing like the chipmunk to find Duba. Keep and believe the original of life. That’s what I learned from my students.

(时光飞逝,童年,已经是好几年前的事了。我很想念那个充满欢笑,拥抱,想象力,朋友,和幸福的年纪。当我来到这个小学后,我又回忆起了当我是一个小女孩的时候。年轻就是简单。因为我们年轻,我们有机会去设计自己的未来,像个傻子一样做自己想做的事。即使我们越来越老,简单点是大智慧。求知若渴,像一个孩子,像一个穷人,像花栗鼠找嘟巴一样坚持去做一件事情。相信生命之初。这就是我从学生那里学到的东西。)

Miss Zhu’s teaching notes10-3~10-7

 

This is my first time to write my blog.  I am from China, Zhejiang Province.  My hometown is Hangzhou City, which is a very beautiful  city. I am a undergraduate at Changchun Normal University which is in the  northeast China.  Now I am a volunteer of Confucius Institute.  I am a teacher at Madison Elementary School which is a Chinese immersion school. I believe this trip to the United State is a valuable experience.

(这是我第一次写我的博客。我来自中国浙江省,我的家乡是杭州市,这是一座非常美丽的城市。我是一名在中国东北部的长春师范大学的未毕业的大学生。现在我是孔子学院的一名志愿者,我是麦迪逊中文沉浸式小学的一名老师。我相信这次美国之行会是一次非常珍贵的经历。)

I am in the fifth grade. To be honest, it’s a big challenge for me. Because children in America are maturer than children in China. They are independent and have their own personality. They are familiar with this school’s rules and stuffs and all of everything than me. Many times I don’t know how to do that but they do. For this school, I am the freshman.

(我现在在五年级。说实话,这对于我来说是个巨大的挑战。因为美国的孩子比中国的孩子更加成熟。他们很独立,有她们自己的个性。他们对于学校的规则,员工,学校所有的一切都很熟悉。很多时候我不知道如何去做的事但是他们知道。对于这个学校来说,我好像更像是一个新生。)

Each child like a castle. They have their own room, they design their rooms in different ways. They have furnitures, sofa, chairs, tables, cloths, drinks, foods, bed and so on, and they trend to make these goods feel comfortable as they like. In some way, they recognize themselves as a core in this castle, and they think the classroom which has 22 students here is her/his castle. They do what they want although that’s not allowed in the class, at the same time, they don’t do works that teacher asks them to do because they just  don’t want to do. They just  say ‘ I can’t do that’.’I don’t wanna do that!”Why should I do that!’ or ‘What I suppose to do?’ They think it’s reasonable to say these sentences because teachers will respect their willings cause they think teachers should be. But actually, respecting is a mutual relationship between students and teachers. They remember their rights but they forget their obligations.So they are disrespectful to teachers some times. They ignore what teachers saying  and say ‘no’.’what’ to their teachers.

(每个孩子都像一座城堡。他们有自己的空间,他们用不同的方式在建设着自己的空间。他们有家具,沙发,椅子,桌子,衣服,饮料,食物,床等等,并且他们会把这些东西变成令他们感到舒适的样子。在某种程度上,他们视他们为这座城市的中心,然而他们把拥有22个学生的教室当成了他们自己的城堡,他们做自己想做的事情即使这在教室是不被允许的,同时,他们不做他们老师要求他们做的事因为仅仅因为他们不想做。他们会说“我不会做”,“我不想做”,“为什么我应该做这个”,“我应该要做什么?”。他们认为说这些话很合理因为他们认为老师会尊重他们的想法因为他们认为老师就应该尊重他们的想法。但是事实上,尊重事互相的。他们只记住了自己的权利却忘记了他们的义务。所以他们有时候不尊重老师。他们忽视老师在说什么,并且朝着老师说“不”。“什么?”)

Of course, they are cute. On Friday morning,  one of my students took the same school bus with me,and when we arrived ,she waited for me to go to the class. My friend said she envied me that I have a such student. I felt proud of it,too. Some students say ‘Good Morning’.’Goodbye!’ to me. When they meet me ,they give me a big smile which make me happy. They like cartoon, when they watch spongebob movie they just like a little baby. They always ask funny and creative questions so that I can’t answer. That’s interesting! They have a good relationship with each other. They are sympathetic when somebody is crying. They help each other, they cooperate with others in class.

(当然,他们很可爱。在周五早上,我的一个学生跟我坐同一辆校车,当我们到达的时候,她等我一起去教室。我的同伴羡慕我有这样的学生。我感到很自豪。有些同学跟我说早上好,再见。当他们遇见我的时候,给我一个大大的微笑这真的让我很开心。他们喜欢动画片,他们在看海绵宝宝的时候像极了天真的小宝宝。他们经常问一些很有趣和有创造力的问题让我无法回答。那真的很有趣!他们的感情都很好,当别人在哭的时候,他们会很有同情心并且关心别人。他们互相帮助,在课堂上互相合作。)

As a teacher, I should be positive! Each coin has two sides. Each one has own shiny point. I will try to dig out these points.I know it’s not easy to manage this class. But I believe  I can do it. It is an opportunity to learn, to grow up, to be maturer. I really appreciate it.

(作为一个老师,我应该积极。每个硬币都有两面。每个学生都有自己的闪光点,我会慢慢挖掘他们的闪光点。我知道要管理好这个班级不容易,但是我相信我可以做到。这是个能让我学习,成长,更加成熟的机会。我真的很感激能有这个机会。)

This Friday, Miss Yeh and I have announced new rules and took some new measures to manage the class. Looking forward to the next week.

(这个周五,叶老师和我已经颁布了一些新的规则,采取了一些新的措施来管理班级。期待下周。)
