HAPPY  YEAR OF THE MONKEY!!!

2016, CHINESE NEW YEAR 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

After our Chinese New Year Holiday, we’ve come back full of energy and creativity! The Chinese Zodiac theme has been a great way to end and review our Animals Unit. Our students have enjoyed making monkey crafts representing the year of the monkey! We hope you enjoy this picture of our crafts and a brief introduction to the year of the monkey and to your child’s Chinese Zodiac Sign… We have a wonderful mix of rabbit and dragon children in our class! Each with their own personality, but sharing some of these common traits.

Monkey is the ninth in the 12-year cycle of Chinese zodiac. The Years of the Monkey include 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028…

THE MONKEY’S PERSONALITY

Monkey years draw their nature from the animal of the year. The Monkey is an intelligent, witty, and inventive animal. They are problem solvers, working with their group while simultaneously demonstrating an independence associated with achievers. The nimble monkey is playful, youthful in nature, and is a joy to watch as they move from activity to activity.

OUR STUDENTS’ CHINESE ZODIAC SIGNS

WE HAVE FRIENDLY RABBITS AND INDEPENDENT DRAGONS IN OUR PS1 CLASS! 

YEAR 2011: YEAR OF THE RABBIT 

Occupying the 4th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Rabbit symbolizes such character traits as creativity, compassion, and sensitivity. Rabbits are friendly, outgoing and prefer the company of others. They also prefer to avoid conflict. In confrontational situations, Rabbits approach calmly and with consideration for the other party. Rabbits believe strongly in friends and family.

YEAR 2012: YEAR OF THE DRAGON

Occupying the 5th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the Dragon is the mightiest of the signs. Dragons symbolize such character traits as dominance and ambition. Dragons prefer to live by their own rules and if left on their own, are usually successful. They’re driven, unafraid of challenges, and willing to take risks. They’re passionate in all they do and they do things in grand fashion.

Hi Ms Marta!

After i saw this project, I think it is very good.

and it is a good idea to have the communication between parents and teacher to know sth happen in the class.

Now my daughter (Monineath) is very happy to come to school and start to talk alot.

Thanks!

Ms Roth

Thanks Ms. Roth! It’s a real pleasure to have Neath in our class. She’s a quick learner and very kind and peaceful with all teachers and classmates. 🙂
