The year of Rabbit - 2011 xīn nián kuài lè

Learning, learning, time, work time, work time.

Children like to play and make things instead so I always plan something fun for the class so they don't realise that they are actually learning and working.

During the Chinese New Year, we have learnt the song Gong xi gong xi, we have made some Chinese arts & crafts, caligraphy and wrote our own spring couplets to decorate the house, we have watched some videos about the story of Nian monster, lantern festival & the tradition of Chinese New Year animated short films, we have learnt how to make Yuan xiao, we have tasted some homemade yuan xiao,
dumplings & etc. and we had a CNY party!

Here're some crafts we made.
