前幾天有位家長提到『孩子在家是乎對英文會本不感興趣』

今天就來跟大家分享如何選擇適合的英文繪本

其實我自己在選繪本時,

第一個考量是我喜不喜歡

所以讓孩子自己挑喜歡的繪本,不管是封面、畫風、角色或是內容。

例如,孩子很喜歡小鼠波波,就可以先從Maisy系列下手。

只要是孩子自己挑的,當你要唸給他聽時,他會樂意接受的

(尤其對剛接觸英文繪本的孩子來說,這點很重要。)

第二個考量是孩子的年齡層或是學習經驗

1. 初階:(0~3歲或是無英文學習經驗)

    針對這階段孩子我會選擇大大的圖畫、圖文吻合、情節簡單、易以動作與聲調說演的繪本。

    例如:Hooray for Fish

    Fish  (圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

2. 初中階:(3歲、英文學習經驗半年)

    針對這階段孩子我會選擇字句重複、更多的描述句但情節還是趨於簡單。

    例如:Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes

    AFHA2433-PETE CAT I LOVE MY WHITE SHOES  (圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

3. 中階:(四歲、英文學習經驗一年)    

    針對這階段孩子我會選擇圖像較複雜、每頁文字三行以上、情節豐富。

    例如:Alphabet Mystery

    Alphabet  (圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

3. 進階:(五歲、英文學習經驗一年以上)

    針對這階段孩子,除了圖像複雜、情節豐富外,每頁文字五行以上。

    例如:What! Cried Granny

    Granny  (圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

有適合的書後,故事說演技巧是最最重要的。

根據情節,適度地變化臉部表情、手勢、音調、音量都能讓孩子更加喜歡聆聽。

去年十月開始在我的幼稚園大班介紹四本Eric Carle的繪本

1. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?

2. Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See?

3. Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See?

4. Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?

原本用意只是唸給孩子聽聽,沒想到在唸了一連串以bear為封面和書名的繪本,

孩子提出『沒有Bear就不是Eric Carle的書』的論點,決定繼續介紹Eric Carle其他繪本。

繼bear系列後,介紹The Very Hungry Caterpillar,Papa, Please Get the Moon for Me

此時孩子推翻先前『沒有Bear就不是Eric Carle的書』的論點,

提出只要看『寫書的人』是不是Eric Carle就可以知道是不是艾瑞卡爾的繪本。

此時,孩子已經開始對Eric Carle繪本產生興趣,會主動分享教室或是家裡有的艾瑞卡爾中文繪本

並詢問有無英文版本,於是孩子開始到其他班上的語文區,學校圖書室及麥克兒童外文書店尋找Eric Carle的英文繪本。

IMGP8913  

就這樣,持續在班上唸了25本Eric Carle的英文繪本。

除了前面提到的六本,還有

- 1, 2, 3 to to Zoo

- Do You Want to Be My Friend? 

- The Tiny Seed, 

- The Secret Birthday Message

- Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother, Too? 

- Have You Seen My Cat?

- The Mixed-Up Chameleon

- The Grouchy Ladybug

- The Very Busy Spider

- Draw Me a Star, 

- Today Is Monday

- Little Cloud

- From Head to Toe

- Ten Little Rubber Ducks

- Hello, Red Fox

- Dream Snow

- "Slowly, Slowly, Slowly" said the Sloth

- Where Are You Going? To See My Friend, 

- The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse 

更多Eric Carle 繪本可上http://www.eric-carle.com/ (The Official Eric Carle Web Site)查看

 

這麼多繪本中,孩子對其中幾本印象最深,能朗朗上口,並主動拿起書架上的書來看,

孩子一看再看、一唸再唸的繪本具有相同的特徵 - 用字簡單、句型重複、搭配歌曲CD

AFHA702  AFHH243-BROWN BEAR WHAT DO YOU SEE  afpf030  AFPF0614-VERY BUSY SPIDER  

afpg935  AFPG2605-ARTIST WHO PAINTED BLUE HORSE   BABY BEAR  HELLO RED FOX

PANDA BEAR,WHAT DO YOU SEE  afha022  (圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

 

經過二十幾本Eric Carle繪本的洗禮,

現在孩子只要看我拿出繪本馬上會說:"It's Eric Carle's book." 或是 "It's not Eric Carle's book."

孩子也因為自己喜歡,主動提出要唸Eric Carle英文繪本給其他班的孩子聽。

真的很高興看到孩子對英文繪本的喜愛,進而從中學習英文的語彙。

這一切都是因為Eric Carle繪本的魅力,讓孩子主動拿起英文繪本,邊唱邊唸,學英文於無形。

一直以來很喜歡收集可以唱的繪本,

去年繪本班一位家長推薦一本跟月份有關、旋律又好聽的繪本

AFBBA70-SKIP THROUGH THE SEASONS   AFBBA70-SKIP THROUGH THE SEASONS-IN  

(圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

 

直到最近才有機會在幼稚園唸給孩子聽,當然也帶了歌 (孩子超喜歡唱的)

Skip through the Seasons介紹12個月份及每個月份的特色

例如:

Jump into January, come along with me!

The local pond is glazed with ice - what can you see?

Whirl into March, come along with me!

The wind is whistling down the street - what ccan you see?

Move into May, come along wiht me!

It's time to make our gardens grow - what can you see?

 

搭配的歌曲旋律真的很好聽,孩子很容易就能朗朗上口

自然而然地把十二個月份的英文記起來,也感受到每個月份的特色

If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands

If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands. Clap your hands.

If you're happy, happy, happy, clap your hands.

二月底,與學校教學顧問丁玟瑛老師開會

當天老師介紹一些跟天氣有關的英文童詩

回到學校馬上將其中的“Clouds"介紹給孩子

Clouds
by Christina Rossetti

White sheep, white sheep,
On a blue hill,
When the wind stops
You all stand still,
When the wind blows
You walk away slow,
White sheep, white sheep,
Where do you go?

IMG_0314  

(孩子替童詩”Clouds"所畫的插畫 by Pei Pei)

 

AFPG2155   AFPG1591-LITTLE CLOUD-IN  

(圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

因為之前在班上唸過Eric Carle的繪本Little Cloud  

所以孩子能很快理解這首童詩的意境,並進行改編,例如

White dog, white dog,
In a blue doghouse,
When the wind stops
You all stand still,
When the wind blows
You walk away slow,
White dog, white dog,
Where do you go?    (adapted by Ray)

IMG_0312

(picture by Ray)

之前也嘗試帶過童詩,但有時因為意境不容易被孩子理解或是太長

孩子的接受度並沒有像學Nursery Rhymes那麼好

但孩子很喜歡唸這首詩,而且唸的很有聲音表情。

前陣子逛網路書店時,看到一本超級可愛的書It's a Little Book

Little Book 1   Little Book 2  

(圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

 

其實去年的時候就看到他的前身 - It's a Book (聽說已經有出中文版)

那時總覺得It's a Book的內容不在學齡前孩子的生活經驗

因為裡面用到scroll down, blog, tweet....等不容易跟孩子解釋的字彙

AFHH0330-ITS A BOOK   AFHH0330-ITS A BOOK-IN  

(圖片來源:麥克兒童外文書店)

 

但當我看到It's a Little Book封面那穿著尿布的猴子和驢子,

就決定要將它納入藏書,並順便帶了It's a Book

 

這兩本真的都很可愛,It's a Little Book描述嬰兒剛接觸書時的反應

It's a Book就像現代人的寫照,每天眼睛盯著智慧型手機或是平板電腦

 

想要更進一步知道兩本書的詳細內容,

可上youtube搜尋It's a Book 或 It's a Little Book

就有完整的影片介紹喔!

三月帶幼兒英語童謠班的孩子唸唱

Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet

Sat on a Tuffet,

Eating her curds and whey.

Along came a spider,

That sat down beside her

And frightened Miss Muffet away.

 

孩子一看到童謠插畫時說:Little Miss Muffet is a girl. 跟Little Po Beep一樣

(Little Bo Beep的童謠先前教過了!)

接著,透過插畫跟孩子解釋童謠的意思。

延伸活動

1. Arts & Crafts: Dangling Spider (idea and spider pattern from "Literature Pockets Nursery Rhymes")

P3140045

P3140048  

完成後,在中間加上一條繩子就像一隻spider從蜘蛛絲上垂下來的樣子。

告訴孩子:Bring home the dangling spider and frighten your daddy, mommy, sister,

brother, grandpa, or grandma.

 

2. A Flap Book - What Is Under Here?(idea from "Literature Pockets Nursery Rhymes")

P3210060  

將童謠分成四小段:Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet / Eating her curds and whey /

Along came a spider who sat down beside her / And frightened Miss Muffet Away

分別貼在翻翻書上方的四個格子裡,

將 tuffet / curds and whye / spider / frightened 分別貼在翻翻書下方的四個格子裡,

讓他們分別對應到童謠的四小段歌詞

 

3. Phonemic Awareness Activity:

將童謠裡的單字 Muffet, tuffet, curds, whey, spider, her, away 寫在白板上

每次唸其中倆個單字,問孩子:Do they rhyme? 

例如:Muffet / tuffet (Yes!), Muffet / away (No!), whey / spider (No!), whye / away (Yes!)

接著將白板上的字全部擦掉,寫上單字spider, 將spider的發音拆成三個聲音sp - i - der,特別強調long i的聲音

告訴孩子接下來會聽到很多字(有長 i 音的字,也有其他母音的字),請他們聽聽看這些字是不是也有long i sound

幼兒英語閱讀班的孩子這個月完成小書:What Will You See at the Zoo?

(Booklet Title, Animal Patterns and Pocket Page Pattern are from the book: I Can Make It! I Can Read It!)

 

這是一本可以唱的小書,孩子很快就能朗朗上口

IMG_0269  

What Will You See at the Zoo? (Sing to the tune of "London Bridge")

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A sleepy zebra.  

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A Growling grizzly.

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A swinging monkey.

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A roaring tiger.

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A playful elephant.

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A graceful giraffe.

What wll you see at the zoo? At the zoo? At the zoo?

What will you see at the zoo? A happy family.

IMG_0270  IMG_0274  

IMG_0276  IMG_0280  

(孩子邊唱邊指小書上的字,可以知道英文閱讀是由左到右,由上到下)

 

IMG_0272   IMG_0279 

(孩子從pocket裡拿出藏在裡面的動物)

 

帶孩子會唱此首歌後,老師將sight words: see, you, at 還有單字zoo寫在白板上

讓孩子邊唱邊指所唱到的字

IMG_0288   IMG_0289 

IMG_0291   IMG_0292  

最後讓孩子在小書上找出see, you, at, and zoo

(ps. 因為我們是幼兒班,所以直接將學習單影印給孩子上色。大一點的孩子,可以讓他們自己畫,會更有創意)

 

過程中,老師帶入ZOO相關繪本

今天打開facebook,看到兩位老師介紹敦煌繪本打五折(4.1 ~ 5.30)

雖然敦煌的書定價較貴,但五折還蠻令人心動的~~

所以傍晚時就去逛一下,買了六本,花了不到$800

有興趣的人可以去逛一下喔!
