February is such a busy month at school. We learned about Chinese New Year. Our class got to try out the tool that the DHS Mandarin teacher demonstrated when she was here earlier in the year. The students used brushes and water to try to create characters. It was hard to wait for the water to evaporate though. They enjoyed it so much that they continued using it during bus dismissal!
Danielle brought in a Chinese money envelope that contains actual Chinese money which the children got to touch and examine. We discussed how it was the same and how it was different from American money.
The students also wanted to share the Chinese Dragon puppets they made in art!
