Work In Progress

The school year is almost over, with the last day of review having been Friday. Next week is exams and on March 4th we have our year-end concert.
The year-end concert is apparently quite a big do, with every class presenting on stage for 5-10 minutes. I am working with the P6 class with the theme "World Culture: Song, Dance and Costume".
I decided to do a version of the Chinese Dragon Dance. It is appropriate to the season (it is Chinese New Year's this weekend) and I had some great inspiration from a project that my Aunt Bonnie did with her Grade ones in Maui.




We really got going on the building of the dragon this past week; I'm really excited because the kids are very enthusiastic and have great energy and ideas. More to come!!!

Until next time,
Heather

    Hi Heather,
    Awesome Dragon!!!! So glad that you and your class are having so much fun with this. They'll remember you and this project, along with everything else, forever! We've been so busy with President's Day, CanDo Day (a field trip where our entire grade level went to the Cultural center and had classes in Drama, Art & Creative movement), and Chinese New Year, all in one week! We haven't even made our dragon yet!
    Happy Happy Chinese New Year and would love to see more pics of your dragon and celebrations!
    Love, Auntie Bonnie
