How do you set up your plan for effective classroom management? How do you teach classroom/school procedures to newcomers in a Chinese immersion program? How do you take advantage of your morning routines to help students reinforce and enrich their language?  What do you teach for the first two weeks of school?  How do you make the first day of school stress-free for newcomers?

1. Tips for classroom management
2. Self-developed readers (available on iChineseReader) for teaching classroom procedures
3. Effective attention getters
4. Strategies for special-need kids
5. Daily morning routines for language reinforcement/enrichment
6. First-Month curriculum for full immersion kindergarten & first two-day Lesson plans for smooth transitions for newcomers


My name is Sally Mao, I am originally from China, where I completed my K-12 education as well as college education. I came to the US in 1990 to pursue my advanced education. I obtained my second Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with my teaching credential and my Master’s Degree in Linguistics with an emphasis in Teaching English as a Second Language from the University of Utah.

This year I am celebrating the 21st year of my teaching career in the public schools. For the past 20 years I have taught in different language programs, such as, English Language Development, Mandarin Chinese Immersion Program, and Chinese Foreign Language Program. Most of my teaching experience has been with the Mandarin immersion programs. I have been with Barnard since 2007 when the Mandarin Chinese program first started.  Helping my students acquire the Chinese language and watching them grow socially and academically are my greatest joy of the day at Barnard.
