01.03.21 铁杵成针 Grinding a metal bar into a needle (子李金針Child, "Li", Gold, Needle)
Today we did a famous story about the most famous Chinese poet Li Bai of the Tang Dynasty (1200 years ago).
We did our little theatre to show when he met the old grandma who try to "Grinding a metal bar into a needle", because she believe if we work a little a day we will make it eventually just like how water made a hole in the stone.
With special effects to the mini theatre today (grandpa making rain drops..), we finished the story by learning four Chinese characters which two of them are the base parts. (子李金針Child, "Li", Gold, Needle)
Then we draw our most memorable moment of the story, along with something that we want to do a little bit everyday and get better.
