Chinese New Year
We learned all about the Chinese New Year. After reading "Lion Dancer: Ernie Wan's Chinese New Year" by Kate Waters and Martha Cooper, we created dragon masks and danced around the room. We also read "Sam and the Lucky Money" by Karen Chinn and then created red money envelopes. During Music, Ms. Price taught us about our zodiac signs. Did you know that horses are talkative. Guess how many horses are in our classroom...16!! We read "How My Parents Learned to Eat" by Ina R. Friedman and then we practiced eating with chopsticks. We ended our celebration with fortune cookies!
