Guest speaker Jiang Mahar points to a map of China while discussing geography.

Green Meadow kindergarten students wore dragon hats and played paper tambourines as they paraded through the halls on January 27 chanting “Gung Hay Fat Choy,” meaning, “Happy New Year,” in Chinese.

Chinese New Year paradeEach year, the kindergarten classes learn about Chinese New Year through various activities and art projects. They recently made red Gung Hay Fat Choy banners, red envelopes for good luck, dragon paper lanterns, noise makers and paper fortune cookies with fun messages inside.

Third graders have also been learning about China in Carina Mahar’s Social Studies class. That unit culminated on Friday with a guest speaker named Jiang Mahar who grew up in China. She discussed China’s geography, culture and even taught the students how to count to 10 in Chinese.
