Chinese New Year & Giveaway & Freebie

Looking to celebrate Chinese New Year?
January 31, 2014 is coming WAY to fast!!
We are just finishing our 2nd term today... where is the school year going?
Anyway, Friday the 31st we are celebrating... with a bit of math, literacy, poetry and art.
Math Stations include:even and odd
word problems
missing addends
10 more/10 less
Literacy Stations include:
ABC Order
Making words
Compound Words
Students will rotate through the stations with a student booklet (with the independent assignments copied back to back in booklet form to save paper and improve organization.)

I purchased these items to help celebrate the day.
We will use the coins for our math manips.
The wind up dragons... we are going to measure the distance it travels in inches and cm.
The hats were just for a fun, cute Chinese New Year picture for their portfolio.
I couldn't resist the tattoos... do I dare decorate my students?????

I bought the do-dads below at Oriental Trading.

Dragon mask just add a little craft stick ;)

Leave a comment with something fun to do on Chinese New Year!
I'll give the file and a banner away on Sunday. Don't want to wait... I put it on sale for $4 through the weekend!
Happy Friday!!!

Congratulations Amy... send me your email ;)

I forgot to add that I'm picking up a couple orders of chicken fried rice from the local Chinese restaurant at lunch and serving samples along with fortune cookies for an afternoon snack!

Love teaching the country of China and creating a dragon for the Dragon Dance!

Make a large paper mache dragon head. Paint it red, adding gold tinsel on the cheeks for a flash of color. Attach a twin size bed sheet at the dragon's neck and decorate using a strand of LED Christmas lights running down its spine or middle section. The longer the sheet is, the more children that can fit under the dragon. Students loved parading around underneath the costume and dancing in the new year.
