On February 1 millions of people will celebrate the beginning of the TIGER year.
Children will be excited to receive presents, houses will be cleaned and special foods prepared. Often new clothes will be worn.
I believe that a knowledge of all major cultural festivals and events is important for children if we are to help prepare them to understand each other’s cultures and lead to greater empathy and harmony.
Each year I have always helped children understand all the major festivals and the LOVE the themed art/craft/maths and literacy we use at these times. It helps children get in touch with the wheel of the year and appreciate each other’s traditions.
I have just finished updating our Chinese New Year package and to help educators and schools I have greatly reduced the price, just for a few weeks. Here is the link on Teachers Pay Teachers: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/CHINESE-NEW-YEAR-60-pages-of-teaching-ideas-2022-WATER-TIGER-YEAR-2369200
It is reduced to $3.50 so affordable and is updated each year.
I wish you all a year filled with strong, brave, confident “tigerish” energy! Victoria
