Chinese New Year
Madrin and Andrea, both born in China, helped Daniel Fisher-Snyder and Sherri Liedberg as they presented Chinese New Year to the class. Clementines, lanterns, dragons, good luck signs, and special red envelopes all help to usher in the lunar new year in China. After hearing about the activities and symbols of the Chinese New Year, the children created their own lanterns and banners and traveled to several other stations to learn more about the zodiac, cities of China, and to practice the symbol-based language. Here’s to a prosperous year, the year of the horse! Thanks ladies for the lesson and yuan.Bluebird. Bookmark the permalink.
