The Magic Paintbrush

Every day, Ho looked after a rich farmer’s cattle. He took hay to the field.
The farmer did not pay him much. Ho had only dry bread to eat.
 
One day a very thin, old man came up the lane. He looked hungry. Ho gave his bread to the man.
Take this.
“Thank you,” said the man. He gave Ho a gift. It was a golden paintbrush.
 
Ho made paints from plants, berries and mud.
“What shall I paint?” thought Ho. He began to paint some hay. The hay became real!
This is a magic paintbrush!
The sun was hot. The stream was dry. So Ho painted a blue stream.
The stream became real! Now the people and the animals had water to drink.
 
The rich farmer had lots of food to eat.  But the children and workers were hungry.
Ho painted lots of food. It became real!
He painted lots of things for people.  They all became real. He painted …
a wheel …
a bucket …
and some clothes.
 
The rich farmer wanted the magic paintbrush. He put Ho in jail and took the brush.
The farmer was greedy. He painted gold. But the gold did not become real.
“Oi, you! The paintbrush does not work for me. Paint me a mountain of gold!” ordered the farmer.
 
Ho painted the mountain of gold. He painted a blue sea all around it. The gold and the sea became real.
The farmer was angry. “I cannot swim! Why did you paint the sea!” he shouted.
“I will paint a ship for you,” said Ho. The ship became real.
The farmer set off in the ship. “When I get back, you will paint everything I want. The world will be mine!” he laughed.
 
But Ho painted a gale. The gale became real. It took the farmer, far, far away.
Ho returned to the farm. He painted things for those who were kind and good to others.
The rich farmer was never seen again.


学员印象

邹孝良同学作为第一个录音的学员,一进录音棚就马上找到状态,化解了刚来时的紧张,不仅如此,还能够在自己完成录音后主动把录制的经验分享给后面的小学员。这样的沟通能力和分享精神让我们不由得称赞!如果你继续阅读就会发现,他的妈妈更是这样一个善于分享的人……

21天阅读打卡中有遇到困难吗?
孝良妈妈:
因得知有此活动时,活动已开始10天了。记得孝良第一次打卡时间是9月10日,打完卡,孝良不开心地问我:“妈妈,我肯定赶不上别人了,他们都已经打了那么多次卡了,妈妈我不想参加了“。看到宝宝伤心的样子,其实我心中也没底,我也不知道之前没打的卡能不能补上。这是参与活动中遇到的第一个难题。
但是,我不想让孩子遇到困难就轻易放弃,我更希望孩子能多参与有意义的活动,多关注过程少看重结果。于是,我就和孝良说:”我们试试看能不能补打卡,如果不能补打卡也没关系,只要我们以后坚持每天打卡就是胜利,万一有的小朋友不坚持那我们就会超过他呀!即使他们都坚持了,但是只要你读得比他们好,你也可能超过他们呀“。孝良有些将信将疑,我内心有些小窃喜,同时也强烈感受到:当孩子面临困难退却时,家长的积极心态和鼓励会直接影响孩子的思想和行为。

阅读过程中和孩子有哪些有趣的互动?
有时孩子家庭作业多,有时我加班回家晚,打完卡都夜里十点多了,孩子有逆反情绪我也有些疲惫急躁。所以在周末的两天时间里,我会及时调整自己及孩子的不安,和孩子聊天,陪他看看他喜欢的英语动画片,再一起英语阅读打卡,一起听小朋友的打卡录音,孝良会时不时地点评:“妈妈,他读得比我好!妈妈,这个小女孩怎么读得这么慢,她会读吗?”我说:“只要敢读的宝宝都是超级棒,就像孝良一样,不管多晚孝良都会坚持阅读打卡,你是妈妈心中最有坚持力的宝宝,妈妈相信你最棒”!
在随后的连续20天打卡过程中,每晚打卡渐渐成为我和孝良的美好时光:一起讨论挑选今天想读哪个英文绘本,哪次读得好,哪次更有进步,反复录制朗读, 怎么写绘本读后感……

为了录音做了哪些准备?
孝良妈妈:得知孝良获得录音棚机会时,我的确有些意外,此次活动中很多孩子表现都很棒,孝良是其中的幸运儿,也是第一次能有机会走进录音棚。
从确定故事到实际录音,准备时间很短,故事难度也比之前更高。首先要攻克单词发音关,需要一遍一遍地跟点读机跟读,甚至前三个晚上孝良连睡觉都还在嘀咕单词。其次是攻破连读语调关。孝良的表现给了我很大惊喜。第四天吃早饭时,忽然开心地告诉我:“妈妈,故事我会读而且好像还会背了,不信,我背给妈妈听”。然后他信心满满地竟然全部背诵了出来。对于妈妈来说,那是一个最幸福最美好的早上……

期间有没有获得老师的指导呢?
郭桧娟老师是孝良2016年进入E PLUS北外壹佳英语时的启蒙老师,活动中多次和郭老师交流心得,她给予了很多鼓励和指导。特别是三年的学习时间里,孩子已和美丽多才多艺的郭老师成为亲密的朋友。郭老师常常推荐各种题材的英文绘本,如丽声系列、大猫系列、全英版Usborne Phonics Stories等等,她很重视英语阅读,时常会问及并提醒家长多鼓励孩子阅读。还有外教老师Nathan  Michael的循循教导,让孩子口语及故事阅读方面进步也很快。

孩子参与录音后有哪些收获呢?
孝良妈妈:录音后,我问孝良的体会,他说:“妈妈,录音棚太好玩太神奇了,为什么声音听起来和平常不一样?老师们对我很好,夸我声音很好听,我一点儿都不紧张,我对自己今天的表现很满意,我觉得我超级棒!”孩子童真的语言,是对此次活动意义所在的最直接的表白……

对于孩子的成长,有哪些经验分享?
孝良妈妈:非常感谢此次的21天“悦读彩虹”活动,让孝良的英语阅读能力得到质的提升:从被动不情愿的英语阅读者,转变成敢于大声朗读信心满满的主动阅读者。此次活动收获了太多感动太多欣喜,也让家长深深体会到:陪伴和鼓励是孩子健康快乐成长的最好滋养剂。
1、用心陪伴至关重要。和孩子一起网上选择绘本,早期日常阅读以孩子兴趣为主进行选择性阅读,逐步引导孩子尝试读更难的绘本,读完相互用英语提问、做游戏或复述故事等;一起看孩子喜欢的英文电影,聊聊影片的音乐人物泪点等等。每天家长用心一点点,小树苗宝宝就会长高一点点……
2、赞许鼓励远胜于否定指责。有句网帖对亲子关系评论一针见血:辅导作业中的爹娘绝对不是亲爹娘。一句话道出所有辅导孩子的父母痛点。非常感谢此次活动中贴心动人的打分点赞细节设计,让家长老师孩子通过互动而变得熟悉亲近,让孩子们喜欢挑战喜欢比赛的本性得到了充分调动和发挥,让获得认可的小心愿每天都能实现。每天孩子读完,问的最多的就是:“妈妈,我是不是很棒?要不怎么那么多人给我点赞?我实在是太棒了!”做为妈妈,那段时间我说的最多的一句话是:“孝良读得是最棒的!孝良每天都在进步!”
21天“悦读彩虹”活动结束了,但活动带给孩子及家长的那份期盼,温暖、自信、勇敢还在继续生长…….
