Say It Two Ways - Chinese New Year!


Chiquita and I are celebrating Chinese New Year this week gearing up for a local celebration on Saturday so I wanted to feature this fun activity that was linked up last week from Discovering the World through My Son's Eye's.



I love that she organizes play dates that involve learning and sharing with kids from lots of different backgrounds.  For this activity she actually contacted a local university to find a Chinese international student to come and lead the play group!  I think that the best person to share culture is someone from that culture so bravo!

This week I've created a printable mini-book in Spanish about Chinese New Year that Chiquita and I have been reading together.

On to the Link-up!

  3. I love the idea of learning a second language and at the same time exploring other cultures, not just those that speak the target language. What a great way to encourage a global view!
