Chinese Literature-Based Unit Studies

Reading takes a huge part of learning. And yet, if we can read and learn from our favorite books and literature WITHOUT any application to deepen our knowledge, that seems like a waste.

Therefore, I decided to make some literature-based printable, both in Chinese and English, so our children can be benefited from it.

This page contains different FREE Chinese literature-based unit studies printable to download.

Hope we can all start to form a tradition of reading with our children.


What is the Literature-Based Unit Studies?

Some people call it Living Books, others say it is a study method that is less textbook, more real books.

Literature-based Unit Studies is a method that allows students to learn and gather information from books and different pieces of literature.

What I usually do was, I pick an English book for one week, and a Chinese book for another week.

During those weeks, I plan out different activities and pick the focus of different subjects (e.g. math, reading, vocab, science, geography, history, art, & music, etc.) from those particular books.
