Chinese around the world are all celebrating Chinese New Year this week. It’s the year of dog!
This Friday was the first day of the New Year, so we decided to do something festive.
We learned the story of the door gods.
The door gods signify the beginning of a new year. Chinese paste a picture of the door gods on their door. They believe the door gods will guard their homes and protect them from evil.
Students learned how to greet and wish each other a happy new year.
We also learned how to sing one of the most popular Chinese New Year songs with the newly-learned greeting phrases.
Then, we learned how to make our own Chinese paper lanterns!
Look at students’ fabulous artworks.
