During the Chinese New Year celebration, EY 2 students listened to a short presentation from Lao Shi about the common tradition that Chinese people usually have. After that, the EY 2 students are making Chinese Dragon Puppets. First, they need to color the dragon template according to Lao Shi instruction (they already learned about colors in Mandarin). Second, they cut the pattern neatly and then paste 3 colored papers and a chopstick on the back of the dragon template. They were all very excited with the result.
We engage our students in several of these cultural activities to understand this festive holiday better.
