We have been enjoying Chinese New Year! In music class, students sang traditional songs and even got to be a dragon!
One of our students wore a special outfit and brought us candy, chopsticks, and a mat with the Chinese zodiac symbols on it! She told us about traditions of not sweeping, wearing new clothing, and eating food with special "good luck" names.
I showed students pictures from my trip to Chinatown in San Francisco, California.
What year were you born? Are you a cat or a rat?
