The last thing I want to share about Chinese new year is the dumpling.
However, the majority of my student is too young to make the real dumpling. But I still don’t want them to miss the fun thing. So we use the clay to make a fake dumpling. Just to let the student experience how to make dumplings.
And I plan my third grade can have the real dumpling class.Before the class, I sent the receipt to class teacher to let them check with parents if their kids allergic or not. So I can make the stuffing. Next day, students make and eat their own dumpling.Even though, we need to prepare a lot. I think it is worth. The student like it very much.
It is a memorable class!
This month we focus on Spring Festival-Chinese new year.
It is a very big culture item if I want to introduce.
So I use a chart to summarize the 15-days celebration. so will easy for them to memorize.
Then I prepared 3 culture item to let students experience. The first one is easy for the first grade: coloring Fu characters. The second one is making the red envelope. The third one is making the dumpling.
School host Steam Night this Friday. All the parents are coming to school for some funny stuff. We prepared Chinese Calligraphy to let parents experience. They really enjoy it~
Last Saturday is Chinese new year. We are invited to Knutson campus’s new year party.
Our principal Dr.Henry go with us. We enjoy a Chinese supper and watch the performance presented by the Chinese club.
It was a good time. we spend time together.We become family at that night.
Of course, Erin and I make some decoration of school too.
It is already been three weeks after winter break. Everything came back to normal routine.
My language lessons focus on family. How to say family member in Chinese.
Because it is related to student’s daily life. They show great enthusiastic when learning.
However to enhance their memory. I decided to let them make family tree.
They did a really amazing job! I so proud of them. Be creative! I told them.
