First grade is learning Chinese! Mr. Chen, a teacher from China is visiting DeKalb Central and teaching lessons in various classes. He has taught us how to say hello, good-bye, thank you, mom, dad, brother, sister, grandma, and grandpa. We also learned to count to 8 in Chinese. Mr. Chen taught us how to use chopsticks. It's not as easy as it looks! We also learned about Chinese calligraphy and how to make the symbols for numbers 1-8. Students are enjoying learning about China!
