Happy Chinese New Year!
Today we celebrated Chinese New Year. Students were introduced to this holiday. Since we are studying schema, we began by activating our schema and shared what we already know about China. We used Sam and the Lucky Money  and Chinese New Year to guide us in our mini-study.

Students also enjoyed a slideshow of how this holiday is celebrated in China and  around the world. This is the year of the dragon. So in celebration of Chinese New Year, we created dragon puppets.
As you can see, we have a group of very creative students.
Wishing you a year of health, wealth, and happiness!
