Monday is Chinese New Year! My dear friend Julie will be coming to read a book about the Chinese New Year to my class. I am excited because Julie has the BEST taste in books and always finds amazing books to read that are unknown to me. After the story my class will be making banners that will hopefully look like this:
I used to do this project with second graders, but have never done it with first or kinder. I had my second graders use black paint to paint the characters for Gung Hay Fat Choy ("Happy New Year"). If I am feeling super courageous I will have my kinders and first graders paint the characters. (Plan B is to have them use black crayons.) My plan is to have the paper prepped and ready to go. The red paper is 18" X 6" and the black paper is 6" X 3". I wanted to post a link to the actual characters BUT I can't find one. (The paper I use is copyrighted so I can't post it.) I will keep looking because I know there must be a place online where I can find the characters printed out for us.
Gung hay fat choy everyone!
Love to all,
