Each year the Lunar New Year is celebrated on a different date as it follows the Lunar Calendar instead of the traditional 12-month calendar. This year it will be celebrated from February 12th- February 26th! Come and join us for this 16 day fesitval! We will begin class by reading...
Students will be able to explain what the Lunar New Year is, where it is celebrated and some fun facts about the festival. Students will also be able to re-tell parts of the story read in class. Students will be able to describe the significance of the dragon in reference to Asian cultures and the Lunar New Year.
