Jayden Is Learning Three-Word Chant - 《三字经》

Ed started teaching Jayden Three-Word Chant few weeks ago from one of those mandarin books he bought during his Guangzhou trip.

Naturally he would not be able to understand the meaning at such tender age, and so the intention is to let him learn more chinese words. At the same time, Ed and I can also learn from the book as this was not taught during our school days. I think it's really very chiem!

简介:自南宋以来,已有七百多年历史,是学习中华传统文化不可多得的的儿童启蒙读物,共一千多字,可谓家喻户晓,脍炙人口。三字一句的韵文极易成诵,内容包括了中国传统的教育、历史、天文、地理、伦理和道德以及一些民间传说,广泛生动而又言简意赅。是孔子得意之作.现被联合国教科文组织列入《世界儿童道德教育丛书》。

Jayden can now recognise the first 12 words from the book and moving on to the next twelve.




人之初 性本善 性相近 习相远
易解:人初生之时,本性都是善艮的。善良的本性彼此都很接近,后来因为生活和学习环境的不同,差异越来越大。失之毫厘,差以千里。
