Our student’s are celebrating the Mid Autumn Festival on Thursday, October 1st. This special celebration features a fun food so I made a reward for this to help you celebrate.
Facts about the Holiday
Here are some facts from Wikepedia:
The Mid-Autumn Festival (Chinese: 中秋節, Vietnamese: Tết Trung Thu), also known as the Lantern or Mooncake Festival, is celebrated notably by the Chinese and other East Asian people. It is also related to Chuseok (in Korea) and Tsukimi (in Japan). The festival is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar with a full moon at night, corresponding to mid-September to early October of the Gregorian calendar.
On this day, the Chinese believe that the moon is at its brightest and fullest size, coinciding with harvest time in the middle of Autumn.
Mooncakes, a rich pastry typically filled with sweet-bean or lotus-seed paste, are traditionally eaten during the festival. Lanterns of all size and shapes, are carried and displayed – as beacons to light our way to prosperity and good luck
- I will use this printable reward to give my student moon cakes in class. I will teach the vocabulary words to my students who are able. I will also hold up the mooncake and ask the student what flavor they like.
2. The coloring page will be used to ask lower level students to choose a mooncake to color. I will print this and use crayons to color. This is great for our littliest VIPKID students.
