I’m so excited that I can finally post the 2nd Chinese Literature-based Unit ~ Guess How Much I Love You 猜猜我有多愛你 (by Sam McBratney). Not only is this children’s book well-written, it also has a simple and direct message. This book has touched many hearts and souls and has become a classic.  I feel honored creating printable and activities inspired by this book to teach my children with. Let’s take a look at this children’s classic, and how all the printable work together.

There are 4 Games {Memory Game, Happy Fishing, Story Retelling, and Collector} with instructions in the printables.

Through playing games, players can learn and apply the basic Chinese opposite adjectives.

Here are photos of my daughters using the pack:

  • Memory Game: My girls love playing this. For my 3-year-old, she matches the pictures together. For my 5-year-old, after learning all the word cards, she is able to match the correct opposite adjectives together upon hearing me say one of the words.
  • Happy Fishing this is my kids’ favorite. This is another version of the memory game but it involves more competition.

Through games, my kids learned all the vocab and definitions very quickly and had fun doing it. Don’t wait, download the file below.



There are 7 pages of the printable worksheets.

They focus on Chinese character recognition and reading comprehension. Math and literacy skills are also included.

Let’s see how my kids did:

They were so excited to do the worksheet especially after they learned about the story and played the card games. These worksheets were not too hard, and they enjoyed doing them. I Hope you have a great experience learning Guess How Much I Love You with your children and students.
