I have a 4th grade student this year that moved into my school district from China. He is just learning English and has a translator. His translator gave me this beautiful old Chinese Calendar knowing that our next country in our series would be China! I was so excited! I am still playing around with some ideas as to how we can create our own Calendar to look similar to this one!
Of course I had to find some children's books to use as inspiration for our lessons as well! My 4th graders are just starting Eric Carle inspired dragons!
We painted paper for our dragons and used the rubber tools to make scales. The kids were so amazed you would have thought I was doing magic tricks in the art room!!
