Chinese New Year is not complete without a Lion Dance. The lion symbolizes power, wisdom and good fortune, chases away evil spirits and brings happiness, longevity, and good luck.
PreK-1 was very fortunate to watch one this year. The lions even walked around for the children to have a closer look. This learning experience gave the children the opportunity to learn about how Chinese New Year is celebrated.
…and they also had the chance to experience dragon dance at the playground. It is evidence that the children are beginning to learn to collaborate as they move the dragon around the playground.
