This will be a WOW-WOW of a year. 2018 is the Year of the Dog in the Asian Lunar Calendar, and we are honoring our faithful companions. Dogs are our inspiration for new Language Arts, and Arts and Crafts activities which build on our original Lunar Calendar Bookmarks that we have offered for several years. New activities include: PUPPY DOG TALES, a reading and writing lesson--with original essays-- that illustrates storytelling perspective. Students are prepared to write their own articles in first, second, or third-person perspective; FACT AND FUN FLASH CARDS hands-on games encourage critical thinking while having lots of fun; PLAYFUL DOGS MOBILE is a Calder-inspired easy art project with reproducible images and minimal supplies; LUNAR ZODIAC bookmarks feature a take-home component to involve family members.
