    The writing worksheets introduced above focus just on individual characters.  You practiced writing each character with the proper stroke order and correct proportions and alignment for each stroke.  In the homework exercises, starting from Lesson 2, you will combine what you've learned about characters together with what you know about vocabulary and grammar from the lessons.  You will practice completing sentences and writing your own sentences, both using Chinese characters and using pinyin with tone marks.  You should print out the following worksheets, available as a PDF file:

      Lesson 2 Homework Exercises

    After printing these worksheets, read the instructions carefully and complete each question by writing the appropriate responses in Chinese characters or pinyin as indicated.  Be sure to write your name at the top of each sheet.  I recommend that you print out these sheets and write your responses by hand.  If you'd rather write your responses directly on the PDF, you may do so if you have an app and device that uses an Apple Pencil or other stylus for writing.  Please do not complete these exercises by using an app to write directly with your finger.

    You can also use any blank sheet of paper to complete these exercises.  If you use lined paper, you might consider writing your characters large enough that they take up 2 or 3 lines at a time.  If you use a blank sheet of paper, instead of writing only the items that fill in blanks, you should write out the whole sentence including any characters provided on the worksheet.

    Once you have completed the worksheets by writing in characters by hand, you should submit them via the Laulima Homework Uploads tool.  There are two ways you can do this.  I recommend trying method #1 first and, if that doesn't work for you, try method #2.

    1. Use the camera app on your mobile phone or other camera-enabled device to scan the QR code for Homework Uploads.  You can find this code in the syllabus, in class announcements, and in our class overview page.  This QR code should take you directly to the Homework Uploads tool.  There, you should choose the option to upload files, and then choose the option to take a photo to upload.  Take a picture of the worksheet you have completed by hand.  Do this multiple times, taking a photo of each page you have completed.
    2. Alternatively, if the QR code does not work for you, or if you prefer to upload using a desktop computer or other device without a camera, you can use this direct link to the Homework Uploads tool.  If you choose this method, it would be helpful to have all your pages scanned together into one PDF file.  Nonetheless, you can still upload separate files for each page, if you like. 

    If you encounter any technical issues while uploading your work to the Homework Uploads tool, please don't hesitate to ask me questions via email at, or ask by posting in the Class Forums.
