Teaching a Chinese class to young students? Perhaps in a dual language setting or foreign language class? Need something that's child friendly and cute? There is a lot of material out there but I wanted something more colorful and engaging. These worksheets are made to give students multiple activities to practice recognizing the first seven Chinese strokes: dot, hook, horizontal, right-falling, rising, throw, turning and vertical.
Each worksheet is on a half sheet so they can be easily glued into student composition notebooks. It asks them first to find and circle the stroke, trace it 3 times, highlight the right one, color it in, practice writing it, and then draw a picture using that stroke. The last activity specifically requires a lot of imagination, but the kids are really good at that! (For instance, for the dot stroke, I've had students draw it as a growing seed or the eye of a cute puppy. It helps them to remember the shape quite well.) The worksheet is colorful and fun. Once students get the rhythm of the activity, they can do it independently.
