The 4th graders wish you…

Best wishes and congratulations.  Have a prosperous and good year!”


2009 - Year of the Ox





We celebrated Chinese New Year by learning about the Chinese Zodiac and making our own “fortune cookies”.  The 1st graders came to our classroom and we taught them what we know about the zodiac, fortune cookies, pandas, dragons, and showed them “artifacts” from China!


Our Chinese New Year Board

Students helped to decorate this board in our classroom.  The symbols stand for the words “Gung Hay Fat Choy”!
