Life at Trinity in the Year of the Dragon
I stopped by Mrs. Woodrum's music room today to see what one of our kindergarten classes was up to.
Trinity parent May Slowik was there helping the students ring in the Chinese new year. To be precise, they rang it in on Orff instruments, playing on the forgiving pentatonic scale, while Mrs. Woodrum sang in Chinese.
Here's some of what Mrs. Slowik shared:
Mrs. Slowik shared about many of her favorite Chinese New Year traditions, from dumplings to the traditional red bags.
The highlight was surely the dragon at the end. The students enjoyed parading through the room as the adults made a decent ruckus. I tried to do my part.
And tonight I enjoyed some Moo Goo Gai Pan just to keep the spirit of the Dragon alive.
