Literacy and Art
I love reading great books to tie into a lesson. Chinese New Year is a great opportunity to do just that. Although I have taken a break from Chinese New Year for the past two years, it is absolutely one of my favorite lessons to do the my students. Below is my personal classroom library collection of CNY and Asian culture books.
These three books are really cute, especially Suki's Kimono.
These five books are great books to have in our classroom, with Chopsticks and The Dancing Dragon being my favorite two!
This book, The Boy Who Painted Dragons, is my absolute favorite! It is a great story, and the illustrations are beautiful.
