The Chinese New Year event at Chambers Elementary School was something exciting for the students. Before the activities, the students and I did a series of preparatory work, such as making paper firecrackers, cutting "spring" characters, and designing New Year's greeting cards. We were so happy to do that.

The hour and a half celebration was full of rich cultural content. Students were introduced to Chinese New Year for one and a half hours of very rich content. We watched a video which described China's Spring Festival customs. The teacher gave the students some questions about it, and those who got the correct answer correctly first received the red New Year envelopes. We conducted a "chopsticks candy" contest and played the a guessing riddles games where 10 riddles were hung under 10 red lanterns. The children loved all the games.
