Anyone doing anything for this? I'd like some ideas that you may have. Any books that I could read to my class?

This is one of my favourite holidays to share with children.
I tie it in with fairy tales usually and/or dragons.
We look at the Chinese zodiak and they find theirs, we look at cultural places in China, we try chopsticks, make fans and dragons and read lots of books.
There are many sites if you just enter Chinese New Year.(Sory can't get my stuff at school tonight).

It's a good book, with a wonderful message. Sorry- I can't remember the author.

Lion Dancer

I forget the author. It is the story of a little boy growing up in Chinatown and how he celebrates the Chinese New Year with his family. LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I teach first by the way.

It has great photographs of the lion dance. Not sure where I got it but I have a mask of a lion that they color in and decorate with tissue paper. We eat fortune cookies (from our local Chinese restaurant) (I have a colleague who makes fried rice with her group)

At the end of the book, there is a Chinese zodiac. their HW is to find out what year everyone in their households were born in.

I have another colleague that makes lanterns.

One of our Kindergarten classes last year "made" a lion dancer and paraded around the school. They basically had the kids paint old sheets.

Another K class had them make paper plate masks of the year we were in. They were very cute.

Oriental trading has the red envelopes (for the lucky money) if you are interested.

At the end of the day, we parade around the school chanting "Gung Hey Fat Choy"


Here's another website resources.

Hope these were helpful,

If you look up Storynory on iTunes, the newest story is called The Chinese Years of Animals and tells how the Chinese years came to be named after animals. It's only six minutes long but it's free and the kids may think it's interesting to hear.
