It's the start to the Chinese Lunar New Year today and we celebrated it all! It's the Year of the Horse so of course we had a horse!
|This is the Chinese Dragon we made out of paper plates this week. Took two days to complete but I love it.|
I was inspired by another teacher over in Italy - found her post on Pinterest. You can see her entire classroom dragon HERE.
|Here is a picture recap of our celebration complete.|
|We also learned about the celebration, traditions and we even learned how to write our numbers and days of the week in Chinese!|
|Other fun stuff this week....we learned about maps, all kinds of maps. Molly even made her own Treasure Map! |
We also dedicated a day to the Groundhog. Sunday is Groundhogs day and I am sure it will be lost in the entire day of Football, but we wanted to make sure we gave props to the groundhog!
I was not the best at taking pictures as I have been under the weather this week - on antibiotics but those are reeking havoc on my system as well...sigh....
I worked on the Spring issue of Polka Dot Balloon this week. Hard to imagine spring right now with our cold and snow, but that is how magazines work! (can you guess the theme of this party??)
Preparing for Superbowl this weekend. We have invited a few families over to watch the game with us.
I was so happy to find out this week that our local gym, wherethe kids take their gymnastics and trampoline classes, is now offering a daytime gym class for homeschoolers! HUZZAH! No more night activities! Thank God!
A few things to note: I have two giveaways gong on right now that end soon!
