Gong Hei Fat Choi!
The Chinese New Year is coming up, and since the theme this term at school is "It's A Great Big World", looking at all the things in the world around us. This month my class has been looking at countries and cultures, so I decided we could do some crafts and activities to celebrate the start of the Lunar New Year. I contacted the mother of a Chinese student who graduated last year, and she offered to give me some 'hong bao', the traditional red envelopes given to children during the holiday. She's also giving me some info on the New year, and I have some crafts lined up for them. Should be a lot of fun! I'll try to remember to take and post some pictures!
