這個系列的四篇文章,我們將與你分享獨家內幕情報,徹底幫你協助孩子全面提升「聽、讀、寫、閱」的能力。


Sagebooks APP is simple and easy to use. With a single parent’s account you can manage multiple children’s accounts, tailor each individual study plan to their unique needs, and get reminder of each child’s progress and plan of the day. In the coming weeks, we will share with you some insider tips to help you best utilise the APPs functions so you can help your child step up in their listening, reading aloud, writing, and reading.

In this post, we will look at ways to get your child to READ more.

在孩子剛開始識字的階段,閱讀可以為孩子提供學以致用的練習,鞏固已學會的字詞,加深對語法的認識和掌握。到了真正的求學階段,閱讀是主要的知識輸入來源。在漫長的人生路上,閱讀的功能變得多樣化:資訊溝通,怡情養性,以至終身學習。

啟蒙時期的閱讀,是終身學習的基礎。一方面,孩子的健全語文發展必須通過大量的語文輸入,閱讀同時也能提升孩子的常識認知、刺激大腦發展,有利進一步的成長。因此可以說孩子的閱讀和成長的關係是:提升了閱讀,這兩方面會得到積極的良性循環、相互提升;要是閱讀失利,那就會使兩方面都會產生一個相反的惡性循環。

但是閱讀並不是與生俱來的本能,而是一種需要刻意培養的技能。要能閱讀,必須有專注力和一定的理解能力。喜愛閱讀也不是一件理所當然的事,而是很取決於個人的性格所向。但無可置疑,閱讀是生活在現代社會必須要有的一種基本技能,喜愛閱讀、懂得怎樣閱讀的人,在社會、在人生路上會佔有優勢。而我們要為孩子做的,就是為本來就喜愛讀書的孩子提供豐富的閱讀資源和優質的環境;同時為本來不喜歡閱讀的孩子締造多元化的學習環境,為他們提供有趣的閱讀素材和相關活動,投其所好,提高他們的興趣,盡量讓他們培養出閱讀能力,繼而增加閱讀興趣。

At the beginning of a child’s literacy development, reading allows the child to practice what they have learnt. The child learns how a language is used as he reads. When they start school, reading becomes the main source of knowledge. Through our lifetime, reading is important to us in many ways: communication, getting information, entertainment, self-improvement and lifelong learning.

How and how much a child reads at the beginning of their language development forms the base of their lifelong learning. Reading and the brain development are closely related. A healthy language development relies on large amount of input through reading. Reading contributes to the child’s general knowledge. It stimulates the brain’s growth which helps the children to be able to read more. We can see that when reading is done well, the child enjoys a healthy growth. Failure to do that would be detrimental to the child’s overall development.

Meanwhile, reading isn’t an innate ability. It’s a skill that requires learning and practice. We need focus and comprehension to be able to read. Not everyone enjoys reading either. It’s a personal thing, just like our other interests and hobbies. However, reading has become a basic required skill in our modern society. If we know how to read and enjoy reading, we are at an advantage at school, at work, in the society and in life. What we can, and should, do is to provide a high-quality reading environment for children who enjoy reading, and create a favourable environment for those who don’t so they, too, can learn how to read. A favourable environment is one that offers a variety of reading material and activities that cater to their interest. It encourages them to read and gradually helps them foster an increased interest in reading as they get better at it.

一起來看看怎樣可以簡單五招,利用思展圖書結合Sagebooks APP,提升所有孩子的閱讀體驗吧。


Below are 5 tips that will help you provide your child an enriched reading experience, whether they are born reader or not.

I. 利用閱讀練習資源 Extra Resources

閱讀孩子已學習的級別的閱讀練習 (思展網站免費下載)。做這個練習,最好是讓孩子朗讀,並利用Sagebooks APP的錄音功能,上載、存檔。


Download the reading practice (they are free) of the levels that your child has already learnt. The best way to do this practice is to encourage your child to read aloud and record it with Sagebooks APP’s function, and save to your child’s portfolio in the APP.

II. 《寶貝盒》故事 Treasure Box

閱讀孩子已學習的級別的《寶貝盒》故事。那就是說,當孩子開始利用啟蒙級識字後三個月左右,就應該利用啟蒙級的《寶貝盒》做閱讀練習。啟蒙級《寶貝盒》五冊合共700多字,同時引進16個啟蒙級《基礎漢字500》沒有教授的新生字,可以有效提高孩子的閱讀量,也進一步認讀新生字。閱讀量和識字量的增加,自然可以增強孩子的閱讀能力。

你同樣可以讓孩子每天分段朗讀故事,並利用APP錄音功能,哪怕是每天一句也好,上載存檔。

其他各級的《寶貝盒》逐級遞進,全套總字數達10600多字,體裁多元化,為孩子在學前就打好閱讀、理解和思考的基礎。有關《寶貝盒》進一步的介紹,歡迎參閱「幼兒閱讀入門講座」(全8講)。


Read the Treasure Box stories of the level that your child has already studied. That means as soon as about 3 months after your child started to learn to read, they could start to read Beginning Reader Treasure Box stories. This set of 5 stories has a total word count of more than 700 characters, and introduces 16 additional new characters (compare to Beginning Reader of Basic Chinese 500). Quantity of reading plus learning new characters compound your child’s reading ability.

Encourage your child to read the stories section by section each day, if they cannot read the entire book in a single sitting. Use Sagebooks APP to record their reading and save to their portfolio. As little as one sentence a day would make a huge difference over time.

The full set of Treasure Box offers a total word count of more than 10600. The 25 stories are of different genres and written in varied styles. It promotes comprehension and thinking, laying a good foundation in your child’s literary develop. For more information on how to use Treasure Box, please read our articles in “Introduction to Early Childhood Reading Seminar” (8 articles, written in Chinese).

III. 短篇漫畫故事 Short Comic Stories

閱讀孩子已學習的級別的《成語漫畫》。《成語漫畫》每級教四則成語,都是在同級學過的漢字,一點不難。而且有正經版和搞笑版。由於是漫畫,故事都由對白組成,最好是家長和孩子一人讀一個角色或一句對白:有家長的輪流參與,孩子會讀得更投入;當讀到搞笑版的部分,更可以大家一起嬉笑,令閱讀更好玩。記得利用APP錄音功能,將精彩部分錄下,上載存檔,會是最好的親子溫馨記錄喔。

《童心童真》漫畫集是孩子可以獨自閱讀的小故事,內容廣泛,由天文、數理,到歷史、經典,還有小幽默。當然可以親子共讀啦。歡迎參閱更多關於《童心童真》的文章。

《成語漫畫》和《童心童真》裏的都是短篇故事,4頁就講完一個故事,而且題材各自不同。對孩子來說既沒有壓力,還不斷有新鮮的故事吸引着他們。即使專注力不強的孩子也能一次最少看完一個故事。


Read the Idioms in Comic of the levels that your child has studied. There are 4 idioms taught in each level. All the character used in the idioms are taught in the same level. Each idiom is presented in comic strips which explain the meanings, with a regular version and a “joke” version. Together, they help your child to remember the idioms and have fun at the same time. As the comic stories are composed of dialogues, you and your child could each read a sentence. Your involvement would definitely encourage your child to read. Have a good laugh when you read the joke part. Remember to record the best part of your readings. Save them in the portfolio – they form sweet memories that will be much cherished.

Komic Kids are short comic stories that children can read independently. Topic of the stories includes maths, astronomy, history, classic, humour and more. Of course you can read WITH your child. Here are more details on Komic Kids.

Idioms in Comic and Komic Kids are both short stories of only 4 pages each, offering a wide range of genre. It provides a stress-free reading experience for children, with interesting and engaging stories to keep them turning the pages. Even those who lacks focus can finish at least one story each time.

IV. 長篇漫畫 Longer Comic Stories

進階級的孩子或《基礎漢字500》畢業生,千萬不能錯過《兔寶寶奇遇》劇場版漫畫。所有角色總動員,上演一個溫馨感人的友情故事。全書共分9回,可以說是孩子進階閱讀的熱身,也是跳板。利用APP錄音功能,家長、孩子、兄弟姐妹、同學⋯⋯一起來,可以分配角色,製作一場精彩的廣播劇。每個周末錄一節,存檔。到劇終時,孩子的閱讀、談吐等能力一定會有顯著的激增。


If your child is studying Progressing Level, or is a graduate, then they should not miss Bunny’s Adventure. It’s an epic comic story that involves every single character of the Basic Chinese 500 world. The 9 chapters tell of a story of friendship and love. Treat it as a warmup, or a springboard, to your child’s next level of reading. Create your own dramatized recording using the APP. Parents, children, siblings, friends…can all be the talents of the production team, each take up a role. You could record one chapter each weekend. By the time you finish the whole story, you would definitely see tremendous progress in your child’s reading and speech.

V. 幼兒修辭系列 Beginning Rhetoric

進階級的孩子,朗讀《反斗歌》,學習漢語音律及修辭,同時學習反義詞,認識名詞、動詞、形容詞等基本詞性,為寫作和修辭打下第一道基礎。由於全書的文句都有強烈的節奏感,亦有押韻,孩子讀起來能感受到漢語的音樂感。最適合利用Sagebooks APP錄音功能,上載、存檔了。


If your child is on Progressing Level, encourage them to read Flip-Flop Fun aloud. It’s a great way to learn Chinese rhetoric and phonology, along with synonyms, antonyms and parts of speech – nouns, verbs, adjectives. These build the first foundation to your child’s writing. The story is written in the style of poetry and rhymes. By reading it aloud, your child would appreciate the rhythm and beat in Chinese writing. It’s a perfect opportunity to record their reading and save to their portfolio.
