February 20th 2015

Today was a great day in room 13! We celebrated Chinese New Year with a special visit from our friends at Panda Express.  The group of five speakers started by teaching us about Chinese New Year and how to count to ten in Chinese.  Students then were taught how to eat with chopsticks and given orange chicken to try out their new skills.  The class loved their snack and got to enjoy a fortune cookie after.  Our guests even brought special red envelopes for the students with a treat for Panda Express inside. 
At the end of the day students went outside to watch a live Lion Dance performed by a group of dancers.  The class got to sit in the front row and even had the dragon puppet come close enough to touch!  Calvin got to join the group up front and played an instrument for the dance.  Each student got a chance to see the dragon up close and even pet it.  It was a great way to end the day for the students of room 13!
