Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is coming up and I'll admit, I've never done anything with it in my classroom.  But I wanted to learn more this year and spent time researching it and the more I learned, the more I knew it would be great to learn about and celebrate....via Readers' Theater!

Some interesting things I learned about the Chinese New Year:
* It's now the year of the Horse.
* It's a 15 day celebration.
* Kids get red envelopes full of money.
* It's based on the cycle of the moon.

Gung hay fat choy...starting January 31st!
