Who is the Fortune Cookie Mom?
你好! I am Po Tim (my first name is a combination of two Chinese characters if you are wondering). I am a former Cantonese teacher and Mandarin teacher, and now I am a stay-home mom homeschooling my three children in both Chinese and English. If you want to learn more about me, please visit my About Me page.

My 4 Focuses
On this blog, my main goals are:
- Chinese Theme Packs: I regularly create and release Chinese Theme Packs. These packs contain many different activities related to the theme and come with detailed descriptions and photos to make it easy for parents and teachers to use. (I made some Bundles that can save you more money.)
- Reading in Chinese: I will help you access information about teaching your kids to read in Chinese.
- Chinese Literature-Based Unit Studies: I also share different Chinese literature-based units with FREE printables and articles to help you teach Chinese.
- Asian-Style Clipart: Finding quality Asian-themed clipart can be hard to find, so I created this place for you to get some to use.
