PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This file has ready-to-print, large 120-pt font words in Chinese (simplified script) with their English meanings. Pinyin is sometimes included on phrases and words I expect the students may want to use before they hear it enough to acquire it.

There are 9 + 2 files in total (updated June 8, 2015). Word walls include: Fun Words (might also be called "Rejoinders"), Action Words (useful in describing class activities and TPR), Useful Words (instructions and questions such as 我可以去洗手间吗?), Time Words, Direction phrases, a small poster of six classroom expectations, a 对联 related to education, and a "no whining" sign. (For convenience, the "+2" files are Questions Words and Connector Words, also available as a free download from my store.)

The page format for most of these files is for printing on 11 by 17 inch sized paper. If you do not have access to a printer for 11x17, you may resize the page and may need to adjust some of the spacing to optimize printing.

My rationale for not showing pinyin except in a few sections: I will be saying words aloud, pausing, and pointing to its meaning as I say it. Over time, students pick up the sound and meaning of the words. I also occasionally ask students to spell the words to make sure they can type them. I have used colors Terry Waltz assigns to each tone (see http://www.terrywaltz.com/terry-waltz-tprs-tonally-orthographic-pinyin.php for information about the colors).

Teaching these words happens over the course of the year in asking students questions and discussing topics. I print these words, cut them out, and post them in the classroom. As I talk with students in class, I pause and point to the question words to clarify meaning as needed. Helpful especially for TPRS and Comprehensible Input teachers of Mandarin Chinese.
