Chinese Lunar New Year

Renee Jefferson visited the Kindergarten class to teach the kids about the Lunar (or Chinese) New Year! 

 

 

The Kinders practiced writing numbers and some simple words using Chinese characters

 

 

 

The class discussed different traditions their family had for holidays, and Renee told them about some of the traditions of the Lunar New Year

 

Everyone got to taste some Jasmine tea, and try using chopsticks

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each child was able to see how their name would be written in Chinese characters
