East Lake Celebrates Chinese New Year

Recently Mrs. Calvello, Mrs. Findlay, Mrs. Gottlieb and Mrs. Guarini’s classes celebrated Chinese New Year.  We engaged in various activities including painting a class dragon for the parade, individual fingerpaint dragons, parachute game with the Chinese zodiac signs, stop and go polyspot activity, as well as, decorating a dragon cake and making and enjoying Rice Krispies treat activities .  All classes joined together to parade through the halls. The students enjoyed playing instruments, waving scarves and "dancing" their dragon. In addition, back in Mrs. Findlay’s classroom they set up a mock Chinese buffet and the students had the opportunity to order their meal and eat with friends.  We completed our celebration with enjoying a slice of our dragon cake!
