Shu Ren teachers present at the Early Childhood Chinese Immersion Forum
The first annual Early Childhood Chinese Immersion Forum took place at CAIS on March 17. The forum was held for educators in Chinese immersion preschool programs to network and learn from each other. Our ECE teachers Queena Laoshi, Chien Laoshi, and Que Laoshi were honored to represent the school to present the language acquisition in a Chinese immersion setting at the forum. Queena Laoshi shared how to expose Chinese to toddlers through different types of activities in their daily school life. Chien Laoshi introduced the concept of the inquiry cycle, while Que Laoshi shared how she used the inquiry cycle to support students’ inquiry based learning in an IB setting.
It was a great opportunity to gather early childhood educators, discuss topics and share the best practices in Chinese immersion in these critical, formative years for students.
