Chinese New Year Fun

Ringing in the Year of the SNAKE!
 
Let the fun begin!

I am really not sure what all we will do for Chinese New Year, but I have started researching some things.  I found a great explanation for the Year of the Snake here.   I also found some more things from tpt.  Here is one that I will be using.  It is a freebie from Life on the Fourth Floor. 

Can you guess what is in the bag???

 
Well over the Christmas break my daughter and I went to PF Chang's for lunch. It was yummy!!!  I asked the manager if I could have some fortune cookies and chop sticks for my students.  :) 

Look at what they gave me!  A bag FULL! 
 

When I started to take photos, I saw this broken cookie, and knew I needed to go ahead and enjoy it. I couldn't give a broken cookie to one of my kiddos.  Check out the fortune!!!
 
 
Oh I almost forgot, this is one of my favorite books for Chinese New Year.  I cant wait to read it to my students. 




What do you have planned for Feb. 11th?

  2. Hi, it is Anne from over at www.dailygetaway.blogspot.com/ I am new to blogging & following blogs but just like you I am a 2nd grade teacher & am ALWAYS looking for new & exciting things to try in my classroom! I love your idea for celebrating Chinese New Year and I will have to check out that book. To celebrate I plan on taking my class to a locally owned chinese restaurant. They always give us a great price & do such a good job hosting us! They usually share information about their customs with us when we are there and they make it a kid friendly experience. I look forward to following your blog! If you get a chance stop by & visit my blog for a quick daily getaway!
