The third graders at Prospect Hill School are studying China, and on Thursday, February 15th, they got to celebrate Chinese New Year in a special way.  Mrs. Betty Chen, mom of Matthew Sze in 3K, came to share information about Chinese New Year.  This year is the Year of the Dog.  First, Mrs. Chen read the story, “Chelsea’s Chinese New Year.”  Then she taught the students how to make an origami dog.  After that, Mrs. Chen served dumplings with soy sauce, and some students even had seconds!  When the celebration was over, Mrs. Chen gave each student traditional red envelopes with a piece of candy and a sheet about the lunar calendar and the Chinese Zodiac.  The celebration was lots of fun and a great way of adding to our study of China.  “I got to try soy sauce for the first time and I loved it!” said Kaitlyn DeAbreu.  Valentina Angrisani commented, “We were fortunate to have Mrs. Chen come and teach us all about Chinese New Year.” And, Savannah Moxham enjoyed the origami craft.  “I loved making the dogs because they came out so cute,” she said.
