This last week my classroom has been a buzz preparing for Chinese New Years.   Here’s a peek into our preparations:

 Each color family designed a Dancing Dragon.
 Colors and designs were recorded.
 We built the head of Dancing Dragon out of cardboard boxes.
 Painted it with acrylic paint.
I am traveling this weekend – later today I will post more photos of the preparations!
Tomorrow we will do our dance!

The children glued on squares of construction paper.

The children glued fabric pieces they cut onto the gold fabric they picked for the body!

 I have a nice collection of Chinese outfits.
So I had a volunteer photograph the children.
I tinted them to look old.  So cute!
