CHINESE NEW YEAR!

Our preschoolers have been spending the last few weeks learning all about Chinese New Year and its traditions!

Our Willows class was very curious about the Chinese Zodiac so we spent some time looking up which zodiac animal year we were born in. Most of us were born in the year of the Dragon, Snake and Horse! To celebrate this year, the year of the Dog, we all made our own paper bag puppets! Some of our Willows even practiced writing numbers in Chinese!
