Preschoolers celebrate Chinese
Carley Franks, Mya Pinkston, Lilli Cockrell and Kady Greer dressed in traditional Chinese attire to celebrate the Chinese New Year in Kendra Warner's preschool class at Hoxie Elementary School on Feb. 7.
The Chinese New Year was celebrated by Kendra Warner's preschool class at Hoxie Elementary School on Feb. 7. Students have been studying Chinese culture through books and songs, and were treated with a Chinese New Year cake, nametags printed in Chinese and small gift bags containing items relating to China's culture. The students also made Chinese lanterns to display in their room.
Several of the students were dressed in Chinese fashion, along with teaching assistant Dana Davis.
Mya Pinkston, four-year-old daughter of Mike and Donna Pinkston, was born in China and adopted by the Pinkstons when she was 11 months old. Mya is in Warner's class, and the study of the Chinese New Year was celebrated in honor of her heritage, said Sherry Hart, preschool coordinator. According to Hart, multiculture studies are a part of their curriculum.
The children learned a song and how to say Happy Chinese New Year (Gung Hay Fat Choy) in Chinese.
