Gung Hay Fat Choy: Celebrating the Year of the Rooster

Yesterday and today room 4 celebrated Chinese New Year with some traditional foods and fun music and crafts. Mrs. K and her sister and brother in law, along with another grandma, came to help us celebrate. One of our mommies whipped up some delicious dumpling filling and grandma taught us how to “paint” dumpling wrappers with water, place a scoop of filling in the middle and pinch them to seal. After, these dumplings were ready for the hot water. Grandma also blessed our classroom with a lovely Chinese calendar and a golden dumpling box! We enjoyed the dumplings as part of our morning snack dressed with soy sauce! Yum!! Mrs K put together an adorable rooster craft that the kiddos loved putting together! We got lots of help and dumpling tutoring from aunt and uncle. We even had a surprise drop-in by another mommy! Thank you to all who helped make our celebration a success!
