We worked in small groups to write a rebus story using pictorial words from Chinese New Year.  We are complex thinkers, collaborators & writers!

I like to scare the dragon with firecrackers when we have money, when it is the moon and I like to taste oranges and we like to parade. I want to open the fortune cookies. I want to ride a horse. The end.

I like parades and play with dragon dance. I eat oranges and use chopsticks. I gave a gift to the horse and I see the moon. I share the money and gave to envelope. I sunny day use a fan. I go to cymbals and fortune cookie and lantern.

Xin Nian Kuai Le!

So we were global citizens again today and…we cut, we pasted, we created, we discussed, we cooked, we tasted, we smelled, we listened, we LEARNED…all about CHINESE NEW YEAR!

Thank you to the wonderful helpers and teaching assistants in each class!
