Reading wordless books to children is a wonderful way to engage them in the target language (Chinese).  There are no words in the book but there are pictures.  When you tell the story of a wordless book, children listen, they hear the words, they understand the story you are telling them.  It is a great way to build literacy skills.

You can use the wordless book concept for Chinese.  You can also use it for  One Word Image.  What are some common elements that all images have?

  • Colors.
  • Sizes.
  • Mood.
  • Location.
  • Personalities.
  • Characteristics.
  • Temperature.
  • Distance.
  • Time.
  • Quantity.

These are all the questions you can ask.  That is a lot.  Start with one category and stay with one.  Repeat and explore all options and let the words and expressions stick to your kids.
