Celebrations

I hope everyone is enjoying the beginning of midwinter break! The children have been working hard at school and having lots of fun too! This week, we have been celebrating a variety of holidays such as Valentine's Day, Lunar New Year and the 100th day of school!!

On Tuesday, dancers from the Chinese Cultural Center came to our school to perform a variety of dances including a ribbon dance, a Kungfu performance and a lion dance performance. The lion dance is believed to bring good luck for the start of the year!
At the end, children from the audience were picked to help perform a dance. J.L from our class was picked!

On Thursday, everyone made their own dragons to scare away the bad luck!

Here are some of their completed dragons--

Afterwards, we had our own parade in the classroom with the dragons!

On Friday, we celebrated our 100th day of school! We created 100th day crowns with 100 stars!
We also shared our 100th day projects! It was fun and exciting to see all the different ways 100 could be represented!
