Grade level is doing an Asian/Chinese theme this year and I'm completely clueless with this theme...NEED HELP with catchy titles for my welcome back bb, classroom jobs, attendance, student work bb, general class info. bb, and also any ideas on classroom decor.
fortune cookie sayings
bamboo trees (You could make them out of bamboo fishing poles.)
Is there a website where you can write your student's names in English, and they then get written in Chinese? Maybe you could also write "Welcome to Third Grade" in English for a display, but also write it in Chinese.
Think of Language /Calligraphy( could you get someone to give a demo?) , Proverbs, Fables, Festivals and Celebrations,Lanterns, Fireworks, Nature( Panda Bamboo), art/ scrolls/Flag/ clothing/silk/fans, Chinese opera/music / food ( could you make some rice or noodle foods? fortune cookies?) / Abacus/ Tangrams...
A board could have the heading: Confucius say.....
It's still the Chinese year of the dragon and the attached lanterns look great when colored and hung in the room.
WOW, WOW, WOW!!!!!! LOVE ALL of you ideas and THANKS for sharing your wonderful resources and files with me... I am already thinking of a two headed dragon we can hang on our ceiling for our two adjoining hallways in 3rd grade!!! You've really given me somewhere to actually start, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
