Finger family手指家庭

Finger family手指家庭

This is a good teaching resource for teaching family members in Chinese at primary school level. Based on the popular English song 'Finger Family', I have edited the video and put in Chinese lyrics. From this clip, students can familarize themsevles with the key family members such as 爸爸(Dad)妈妈(Mum),哥哥(Elder brother),姐姐(Elder sister), 宝宝(baby)as well as 手指(fingers). Before teaching the song, the teacher can integrate art work- Finger Puppet making into their lesson. After students finish making the finger puppet, they can present a wonderful performance- 手指家庭 tothe school and their parents.
