Imaginery Taxi

Today the K-B class (K-2) are learning mandarin, the topic is about get on and get off the taxi.
We move their chairs to make two lines, which looked like inside the taxi's seat. Front seat and back seat. When I said "Shang Che" it means get on the taxi, they must do exactly as real taxi. Open the door first, then get on your leg and sit on inside, after that get on the other leg. It's so much fun, because a lot of them skip to open the imagery door car. And I say," Oh no, you can walk thru  the door." They are all laughing, and they repeat it again. After they get on the taxi, the imagery taxi just start to go without closing the door first. I say,"Oh my God, it's very dangerous if you dont close the door car first." They laugh again. After finish getting on the car perfectly, then I ask," Who's driving?" They immediately point to their friend who sit on the right front seat. (FYI : we are in Indonesia use to drive on the right side, right side steer). It's amazing that they perfectly know which side should the driver sit on. They really paid attention on this issue before. They aware it.
After that the imagery taxi is starting to go with 3 passengers inside......... Brrrrooommmmmmm................
"Don't forget to pay before you get off the car ya...........!", I yelled.

Shang che = get on the car
Xia che = get off the car

Danny, you guys have a lot of fun! Even the simplest tasks can be awesome learning experiences and can also be more fun than big elaborate projects. Isn't the laughter the BEST part of our job? :)

Yes Ayn, imaginations are the most powerful way in learning.
Someytimes I am watching them while they are playing in the playground, they are talking about a big mountain at the left corner, and a large lake at the right corner.
A savannah in front of them, and a group of lions are lying down.... Wow!!!!
