Preparing for the New Year!

Today we had a great time preparing for the Chinese New Year. We all agreed to wear red next Monday and to clean our bedrooms in preparation. We worked in centers to learn as much as we could about the traditional greetings, decorations, importance of the dragon, and overall understanding of this family celebration. Each student was able to learn how to sew on our brand new classroom sewing machines as we made our classroom New Year banners (these machines were donated by our amazing PTA)! The sewing machine was a GREAT distraction from the news that our silk worms did not make it through the weekend. A new, healthy batch should be arriving by next week. Next week we will be enjoying dumplings, noodles, oranges and apples as we learn how to use chop sticks. Please let me know if your child has an allergy. If there is something not on this list that you would like to bring in to share, please let me know!


Thanks
