Lunar New Year is right around the corner (this Friday)! I love that my school celebrates it with an all school Lunar New Year parade. It gives me a chance to share some of my own culture with my students. :)
To read about the things I've done with my class in the past, click here. I also made a yummy treat to share with my kids, red bean sticky cake! I shared the recipe for this in an old post.
Since I'm teaching second grade AND looped with some students, I needed to come up with something a little different this year. We are still going to do the chopstick math (read about it here) because my kids had a lot of fun with it last year. However, I did change the worksheet so that it's more relevant to second grade. We are learning about fractions right now so it only made sense to stick some fractions in there! I also changed the licorice bites to gummy worms. I noticed that the kids were purposely avoiding the licorice bites since they didn't want to eat them.

I don't have any student examples yet since I'm doing this lesson with my students tomorrow. Here is a computerized example of what the book looks like:
Hope that's enough to interest you so go check it out! The product includes a cover for the book, page templates, a Chinese number guide, and Chinese place value guide. (Hint: If you download the preview, you might get a guide for free!) I also included 4-digit numbers for upper grades. :)
