Celebrating Chinese New Year

We are going to start our very first homeschoolalong with the topic of China/Chinese for Chinese New Year. This topic will run a month. Some suggestions are:

  • Ancinet China

  • Chinese New Year

  • Dragons

  • Chinese food

  • Chinese art such as brushpainting

  • Learn your name in Chinese and how to write it


Everyone can share their resources and what they do here. You can always have a bit here and link to your blog with more information. To sign up email: homeschoolillinois [at] insightbb [dot] com

  • This sounds neat! I just so happen to be focusing on China as well this month. We're reading a biography of Hudson Taylor (founder of China Inland Mission now called OMF). We're are reading about the plight of Christians and life in general in China. We are praying for China with the help of Voice of the Martyrs resources. I plan to watch with the kids a video on the life of Hudson Taylor, Inn of Sixth Happiness, and Chariots of Fire (went on to become a missionary to China).

    We are enjoying this so much. It's a very humbling and interesting and culturally rich study. If anyone is interested in any of these aspects of China study, please let me know---I've got more info.

    Blessings!
