Last night I pulled out our Chinese lanterns and hung them from the ceiling.
We enjoyed some great stories about China today.
After reading The Great Race we arranged the animals in the story in order.
Tyler practiced writing some Chinese words.
We practiced using chopsticks by transferring noodles from one plate to another.
We timed ourselves to see how we did.
Tyler did some studying about Chinese life in Material World and Hungry Planet by Peter Menzel and filled out a VENN diagram comparing and contrasting life in China and the USA.
This a really fun Chinese lantern craft we made. I found it here.
We also cut up some pretend Chinese money and put in tiger envelopes.
This activity went well with the story Sam and The Lucky Money.
Tonight we enjoyed a delicious meal of Chinese takeout. Christian wasn't into the Chinese food however so I made him something different. He liked it last time but wasn't having it tonight.
Finally this evening we had good family time together watching Kung Fu Panda.
We had a great day enjoying Chinese New Years. If you would like to find out what other families are doing to celebrate Jimmie's Collage is hosting a contest and sharing ideas. Just click on the button below.
