I always love Chinese New Year. I love the colors and the traditions associated with it. I usually don’t have many students who celebrate the holiday in my classroom, but I feel it is important to expose my students to many holiday customs. Here are some resources you may find in your classroom.
Books are always a great way hook your students into something that they may be unfamiliar with. Here are some great books I use in my classroom for the Chinese New Year.
