This Chinese New Year ELA Packet includes activities that utilize a wide range of reading and writing skills, and is perfect for students grades 1st through 3rd grade. These activities incorporate authentic Chinese New Year objects and symbols, introducing students to China and East Asia's most important festival.

In this packet students will:

Vocabulary Cards for Pocket Chart ~ Display and introduce the vocabulary from the lesson in your pocket chart, and keep it up throughout the lessons for reference.

How Many Syllables? ~ Students will use vocabulary words from the reading passage and count how many syllables they have.

Comprehension: Beginning, Middle, End Activity ~ (following the reading) First, the teacher reads the above, interactive story aloud to the students.

Finally, the students will write and illustrate what happened in the beginning, middle, and end of the story.

Handwriting Practice Chinese New Year Minibook ~ Students will write the provided sentences about Chinese New Year on the lines below realistic illustrations, which they can then color.
