This was what greeted the students last week - our table of Chinese "artifacts". This is called provocation - a way to provoke the curiosity and learning of students. J. and N. enjoying a chance to explore our table. All of the students made their own Chinese lanterns using tissue paper and lots of gold glitter! Our Chinese "food" at our playhouse was a great place to practice using chopsticks. What a challenge!
We finished off our Chinese New Year theme by joining our friends in the other kindergarten class for a Chinese lunch. Following Chinese tradition we brought our friends a gift - an orange, which is a symbol of good luck and wealth. It was a great experience for the children to try foods that many had not tried before!
I'm Mrs. MacDonald. Welcome to a window into our kindergarten classroom. My goal of this blog is to give you an opportunity to see some of the things that we are doing at school. Enjoy!
