"Gung Hey Fat Choy" Happy Chinese New Year!
Mrs. Perrone's & Mrs. Zimmerman's kindergarten class celebrated Chinese New Year by making lanterns. We learned about the Chinese Zodiac and that 2014 is the Year of the Horse. The students read books and watched a non-fiction video about the customs and traditions of the Chinese people. We discussed how Chinese New Year is similar and different from other celebrations.
It is so important to learn other cultures and this experience will hopefully continue the students on a path of global appreciation and respect.
