For the month of January, the children of room 7 learned about Chinese New Year. They created Chinese lanterns and even used this theme in the door decorating contest. As a culminating activity, we rang in Chinese New Year with red streamers and delicious orange slices!! Mrs. Keyser spoke to the students about traditions and guided them in creating Chinese yo-yos decorated with calligraphy. The students then enjoyed traditional Chinese candies, juice, oranges, and fried wontons. This celebration was completed with each student receiving a red envelope, stuffed with chocolate coins!! Luck and prosperity in the year to come!!!!
