When my girls were younger, both joined Girl Scouts. It was a group activity where they developed friendships and learned about subjects ranging from horses to insects to helping otheres. The troops were open to girls in our elementary school.
Our troop had a troop leader, but in order to spread the load each mom took charge of a “try-its.” The try-it badges were worn on the girls’ vests in recognition of completing tasks in a central theme. I chose the theme of language and cultures of the world. I had several activities planned, but wanted to find something visual to enhance my lesson plan. If you are a teacher or work with young children, you know how easily you can lose everyone’s attention.
I wish I had Ni Hao, Kai-Lan: Kai-Lan’s Great Trip to China when I taught about languages in other countries. My son loved this DVD, so I know the Girl Scouts would have loved it, too!
Ni Hao, Kai-lan: Kai-lan’s Great Trip to China
Join Kai-lan and her friends Rintoo, Tolee and Ho Ho in an adventure-filled, fun and educational trip to China in this exciting double-length feature episode. Kai-lan gets a phone call from her favorite great aunt (and YeYe’s sister), Gu nai nai, inviting us to come to China and meet a baby panda! During their journey, Kai-lan and her friends are amazed by all the new things that they see. This playful and upbeat show introduces Mandarin Chinese in a fun, interactive way, also helping children to develop emotional and social skills.
