Chinese New Year is right around the corner (February 8th!). Here are a few ideas to celebrate and learn with your class!
You can do this with Google Earth, or Google's new app, Streetview on a device. Both of these apps will allow you and your students to take a virtual field trip to walk the streets of China and explore without ever having to leave your classroom. Bonus if you have Cardboard!
Check out THIS blog post for a quick How-To to make these beautiful and festive lanterns that will add a pop of color to your classroom and bring you good luck!
These are available in my TpT store and add a little bit of festive fun to your literacy stations! It's on sale for $2.00!
This is a wonderful book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal all about two chopsticks that are best friends. You'll love this book and the illustrations, and so will your students! You can find it on Amazon HERE!
HERE'S a great video from Wonderopolis to help get you started! We used our chopsticks to practice picking up uncooked noodles. Then we incorporated them into our word work stations to pick up letters to make words. Then we took them to lunch and tried to eat our lunches with them. (Note: Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches are not easy to eat with chopsticks.)
How do you celebrate Chinese New Year with your students!? I would love to hear from you!
