Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Chinese
Friday May 20
Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with us as we explore the history, traditions, and culture of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
Today we will be focusing on the varied experiences of our Chinese friends.
Purpose Behind the Play: Social-emotional development, self-regulation, color identification, critical thinking, and locomotor movement.
Smart Art (on-going):
- Lanterns & Light: Through our celebration of Chinese culture, we will explore the creation of our very own Chinese lanterns!
Sensational Story Time in Orange Plaza (11 AM & 2:30 PM):
- Eyes That Kiss in the Corners: This lyrical, stunning picture book is a celebration of diversity, and tells a story about learning to love and celebrate your Asian-shaped eyes.
Grown-up Tip: Talk to your child about how everyone has a different experience, despite living in the same country, state, or city. Discussing these differences gives your child language and teaches them empathy. Learning about other cultures nurtures empathy and a broader view of our world.
