The Year of the Sheep


Happy Chinese New Year! Since moving to San Francisco I have learned to appreciate the joys of the New Year. There are awesome parades, great food, and a ton of luck to go around. This year is the Year of the Sheep/Ram. To help get my students in the festive mood we have been making these cute Sheep Puppets.

Ages: Preschool- 3rd grade
