Mrs. Malinowski’s third grade class celebrated the Lunar New Year! Students learned about the solar calendar and why the Lunar New Year falls on a different day every year. They also learned which other countries celebrate this New Year and its many names. Students learned more specifically about the Korean New Year as Mrs. Lee, a student’s mother in Mrs. Malinowski’s class, joined the classroom virtually sharing a presentation, reading a book and showing a video of this celebration. The students loved learning about all of the traditions, especially the games played on this special day! The students each received a chocolate gold coin in a red envelope and had the opportunity to create their very own hacky sack! The students enjoyed themselves so much that they ended their celebration by writing a thank you letter to Mrs. Lee for teaching and including them in this special Lunar New Year celebration.
