Dragon Boat Festival, PDF FREEbie

Here is a blog post for ESL teachers in China. If you are teaching students in China, get ready!

Dragon Boat Festival is coming on June 14th. This special holiday is also referred to as the Double Fifth Festival because of the date of the festival. It occurs on the fifth day of the fifth month on the Chinese calendar.

There are lots of traditions and historical significance to this day.

Read more about the festival here.

One traditional activity is dragon boat racing. I like to simulate this in class. It’s so fun to add characters to a dragon boat and race.

I created this year’s printable with a dragon boat. I will print this on cardstock (it’s only once a year). I will cut Meg, Mike, and Dino close and then put them in the dragon boat. Have fun celebrating!

Children’s Day Celebration, June 1st-Free PDF printables

Our students will celebrate Children’s Day on June the 1st. Some students may have off school on this day and some will attend. My regular student had a celebration in your classroom sponsored by the teachers with pizza, balloons, and fun games. She loved her celebration. Celebrate in your classroom with some FREE printables.

I will celebrate with all my regulars this week even if I don’t see them. I will celebrate a few days before and after by saying, ” I am sorry, I did not see you on Children’s day. Let’s celebrate in class today. Here are three ways I am celebrating.

1. Send student an ecard in your phone app for Children’s day. They are FREE!

2. Present a certificate after class to the student. Click Here.

Directions: Print, laminate or put in a sheet pouch. Write child’s name and your name. Give them this at the end of class.

3. Celebrate with a dino toy, paint reward. Click Here.

I put these on Dino’s hand with a piece of velcro dot on Dino’s paw. I put in a little stitch with a needle and thread too. Attach the reward and give it to the student as you reward the stars.
