Year of the Pig

In celebration of the Chinese New Year, the cafeteria staff decorated the luch room, gave out chopsticks, and served Chinese food for lunch! Second graders learned the art of Chinese handwriting. The Ancient Chinese considered writing an important form of art. Calligraphers would practice for years to learn to write perfectly, but with style. Each of the over 40,000 characters needed to be drawn precisely. In addition, each stroke in a character had to be drawn in a specific order. Student students love learning from global cultures and traditions!
