Register now for Shu Ren's Mandarin immersion summer camp

Shu Ren International School will offer a Mandarin immersion summer camp for Pre-K (ages 3-5) and Kindergarten and older (ages 5-10) between June 21 and August 13. For ages 5-10, the camp will be divided into two classes: Beginning, geared toward students with little or no exposure to Mandarin who want to learn basic listening and speaking skills, and Intermediate/Advanced, for students who have acquired the basic listening and speaking skills and want to learn more vocabulary and sentences through fun games, reading, and writing. During each two-week session, students learn Mandarin language skills and Chinese cultural knowledge through fun, immersion-based activities. These include music, dance, stories, arts and crafts, martial arts and so on. Teachers speak in Mandarin with gestures and with their bodies, so children understand the tasks at hand.

Mathematics: 100 Day We counted our 100 day items and made a 100 day paper quilt. Science: Hermit Crabs We introduced our new friends to the children and spent some time discussing what a hermit crab needs to live. What kinds of food do they eat? Do they drink water? Where do they sleep? What do they need in their home? Art: Olympic Flag We spent some time talking about the Olympic flag and the colors on the flag. We then colored in our own Olympic flag.
