Week 22 @PreK1a, Brave Bears – Chinese New Year learning experiences through collaboration with experts & parents

“Children learn best through hands-on learning experiences.”

Last week, the Brave Bears were fortunate to have experts and parents to come and teach about Chinese New Year.

First, the Brave Bears learned about Chinese paper cutting with Ms. Lizzy (Marco’s sister). This activity was a great learning engagement for developing a better control of a pair of scissors.

The Brave Bears made their own dumplings with Yoyi’s mom and aye.

“Fillings on the wrapper then put water on the wrapper to close the dumpling.”

During ECC CNY celebration the Brave Bears watched a Lion show, and as well as show their Kung Fu moves.

Then after the celebration, the Brave Bears experienced to make noodles.
