【Reported by Mingsheng Santiago of Renjianshe】2023-03-24
Fo Guang Shan Hsi Fang Temple launched a variety of special learning content in the spring English course, attracting about 60 students and parents from Sanhao Children’s Class, Children’s Martial Arts Class and Adult English Buddhist Class. Sanhao Children’s Class specially invites Eugene Chiang, a computer engineer who loves Lego creation, to give lectures. Through LEGO Lego art learning, the children are inspired to understand themselves and the spirit of symbiosis.
From March 11th, the children in the Sanhao children’s class began to study Lego for three consecutive weeks. On the first day of the course, the children learned about their external and internal characteristics by filling out the worksheet, and used Lego to create a unique Lego portrait representing themselves. Andrew, who likes green, assembled green costumes and portraits holding Lego, while Asya, who loves peace and small animals, made his Lego portraits wear clothes with “love” and animals around them.
Jiang Yuqing also let the children understand the concept of eco-friendliness and environmental protection through the vegetable garden built by Lego, and inspired the children to have the spirit of symbiosis.
Sanhao Children’s Class offers two classes in this semester. Classes for infants and children are divided by age, and a children’s martial arts class is updated to allow children to exercise their muscles and bones and have more diverse learning experiences. The parent Chikako said that while the two children are attending the Sanhao children’s class, he can also participate in the adult English Buddhist class. When the children’s martial arts class is in progress, he volunteers in the dojo. The whole family has the opportunity to learn Buddhism.
