Strategy 1.The jigsaw Technique Students should be involved in their own learning. Activity : Students divided by group or work in pairs to rebuilt & complete Chinese character Puzzle which given by teacher . Justification & Solution: Recognize that the child is central to the learning process; all activities and tasks should be planned so that the student is involved in his own learning. Provide hands-on activities and problem-solving tasks, allowing students to research topics to discover information for themselves.

Strategy 2. The Gallery Walk. Students should have opportunities to challenge their own ideas. Activity : Students divided by group or work in pairs for Chinese Vowel & consonant work .Flashcards ( Thai & Chinese vowel + Consonant ) provided & put on classroom wall .The students need to do brainstorming & Peer learning with their own / first language ( Thai ) experiences , find out & pair the related Chinese Vowel & Consonant sound. They have to walk around the classroom . Justification : Introduce a new subject by discussing what a student already knows or thinks she knows about that topic. If the lesson is about Chinese Consonant & Vowel for example, spend some time brainstorming with the class, writing down their ideas about the topics, whether or not the ideas are correct. Allow students to spend time discussing the subject in pairs or small groups, feeding back their information to the rest of the class.

Task 3 .Effective Discussion Students should be allowed to learn from mistakes. Activity : Chinese Vowel & Consonant problem solving game . The Chinese Vowel & Consonant divided by group, let say a, b,c,d & accordingly in the beginning game . Each group average has 5 sound in it. A Vocabulary will be given to the students which fix with the group at the beginning of this problem solving game. The students divided by group ( Peer learning process ) & discuss the related Vocaburaly .If the first group guess wrong answer , the next group will be get next chance .The winner goes to the group who guess the Vowel & Consonant to the related Vocabulary with the highest score in the game.
