Mandarin Matrix Dual Language Immersion teaching materials
Developed in partnership with the University of Utah Confucius Institute, the Readers and Online Classroom have been designed for dual language immersion programs, teaching children from kindergarten and grades 1 and 2 with plans to expand through to grade 6.
10 Kindergarten units comprised of three separate readers: One for the teacher, one for the child and one for the class as a whole. 15 units for both Grade 1 and 2 with three readers per unit, a total of 45 books per grade. The same vocabulary used across three books to ensure repetition and variety of contexts to reinforce learning outcomes.
The first immersion books are written for kindergarten plus grades 1 and 2 using school, family and playtime topics. The books leverage Rebus images for expanded narrative storytelling beyond set scope and sequence vocabulary.
