Interdisciplinary breaks the barriers of different academic disciplines, and combine them into one activity,thus to improve the comprehensive quality。
This class was to enhance the children’s understanding of Number 1-10, made sure they could count with hands. Body movements, music and arts integration not only helped the students to learned the knowledge of mathematics, but also stimulated their passion for studying mathematics,which was a fun experience of inquiry studying.
G1 students were more sensitive to shapes and music during studying. So we started the class with “Song of number”, for example: “1” resembled a standing crayon, let’s stand straight and started drawing...Students gained a clearer imagine about number through the presentation of the songs.
After gaining a first impression of numbers, teachers played some short notes(1-10)on piano, the students told the teachers the number of the notes. This activity made students focus and fully engaged themselves in the class.
Story creation: Teachers were leading the students to creat and edit their own stories, which allowed students to give full play to their imagination, and made them aware of the importance of numbers.
Number creative painting: Teachers encouraged divergent thinking, and made a number transformation with students through painting. For instance: transformed Number “1”into a faucet. The mathematics and art integration brought a special experience of learning through entertainment for the students.At the end of the class,we also conducted a life safety education on basis of the current pandemic situation.
