I am using this drawing by Helen Doodle as my inspiration to teach my students how to draw a dragon. Come back soon to see more of what we are doing with these great picture books and other ways we are integrating China into our lessons!
This will be a great way to introduce Chinese characters and a few aspects of Chinese culture to my students. Click here to get this recording sheet for FREE! If you click on the picture, it will take you to the book!
My plan is to post them on my bulletin board along with their writing from this book. Once their projects are complete, I will post them for you to see! My students will choose a black stone, read the word, and then use the stones to create the word in the sand.
I also filled a glass mason jar with clear pebbles. This is a great introduction to Chinese culture, stories, traditions and language! I bought black stones from AC Moore and wrote the pre-primer words on the stones using a silver Sharpie.
These picture books each showcase a different aspect of the Chinese culture that I will touch upon. After we read the story and go over the story elements, my students will respond to the text by drawing a picture of what their pet dragon would look like if they had one! I found a few resources online that you could use if you wanted to have your students draw a dragon.
This week we will really dive deep into learning about the country and traditions found there. I might also read my students this short book that I found online.
Each day we will read a different picture book and complete an activity to go along with the book. If you click on the picture, it will take you to her store! After they create their word, the can use a fork to create intricate designs in the sand. I am sure my students are going to love the story and especially love looking at the pictures.
