Product Description
This Word document includes three versions of the well-known Tang dynasty poem 静夜思: Chinese character, pinyin, and my English translation.

Paper size is set to "Ledger" (11 inches by 17 inches) so it can be printed and easily displayed on the classroom wall.

I will use the lines of the poem in class as "Call and Response" attention redirecting chants. For example, I'll say 床前 and students answer 明月光。Over time, we'll work our way through the whole poem. Since this is so well-known in Chinese circles, I am glad for my American students learning Chinese to know this poem.

I used colors and capitalization on the pinyin from Terry Waltz's system. More information on that: http://www.terrywaltz.com/terry-waltz-tprs-tonally-orthographic-pinyin.php
