December Reading Challenge 2020
This December, enjoy an abundance of stories!
Try the JoJo #WuShiGeGuShi (Fifty Stories) reading challenge in a Christmas or Hanukkah theme!
How to participate?
Have your kiddo...
Read, read along with, or listen to any fifty Chinese books during the month of December. (Repeting a book is fine)
Each time your child reads a book, have him or her color one book in either of our two #WuShiGeGuShi Challenges: “五十个故事 Christmas Tree” or “五十个故事 Menorah”.
Take a pic of the completely colored sheet and tag us on social media*(Insta: @jojo_learning or FB: @jojolearning) by midnight PST on January 1st.
*If you don't have social media or prefer not to use it, you can also email us the pic at firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll pick our TOP 5 posts on January 2nd and send the winners a fun and educational fidget toy called a "What' Zit Mini" (pictured below).
Regardless whether your child wins or not, we recommend offering some incentive for them when they complete the challenge--whether it is an extra treat on New Year's day, a baking adventure with you, or a trip to the local bakery/dollar store, making an event of accomplishing this goal will help associate hard work with nice reward. We hope this may start a virtuous cycle of Chinese reading!
When we ran our #SummerBookBuilding challenges this summer, we heard from some of you that your kids were genuinely excited about reading in Chinese for the first time in a long time!
Here are quotes about kids ranging in age from 3-13:
Inspired by you, we decided to create a few simplified reading challenges for your family to enjoy this holiday season!
Happy learning, y'all!
