Year of the Goat
I wanted the class to see a real Dragon Dance competition to notice the music, drums, Chinese writing, the skill, the entire experience...
My mom talked about her favorite memories of Chinese New Year and the anticipation of new clothes and red envelopes.
We used the video to help with drawings because we working on paper lanterns.
Thank goodness Ms. Kathleen was there to make our drawings into lanterns.
We learned how to count to 10 and even write the numbers.
We painted some math problems.
At the end of the day we shared some of the things we learned on a padlet.
It was such an exciting day filled with music, learning, and creativity. Want to check out the padlet click here: http://padlet.com/WrightsRippers/czmcdpxs1886
