Joyous Chinese Cultural School
Wow! What a day! We had a wonderful time at the Joyous Chinese Cultural Center. We did so many interesting activities. We made paper cut pandas, we learned to write/paint some Chinese characters, we learned how to make dumplings, we learned some Chinese dance moves. We also had a delicious lunch of noodles, dumplings and spring rolls. What a great finale to our We Are Family Expedition! I am sad that it is over but there is another exciting Expedition yet to come in second semester. Your child brought home a paper cut panda and some characters that they worked on today. Ask your child about the pictures in the slideshow below.



Winter Party
As if our experiences at the Joyous Chinese Cultural School weren't enough, we also had a winter party when we returned to school. We had hot cocoa, cookies and pretzels to eat and drink. We made a sleigh out of a Hershey bar and two candy canes. We read one winter book and we went to the holiday sing-a-long in the gym for a few songs. It was a full, fun and busy party. Thanks to Kerry for organizing it and to Aimee for the fun craft and to all of you who donated items and helped supervise the party.

Homework
No homework over the break. Head to the library and find some great books to read with your child. If you are stumped for titles, remember Gooney Bird Greene for reading aloud and Elephant and Piggie for independent reading. This will get you started and you can branch out from there.

IA
Our IA after break will be Art.
