中国人会用十二生肖来命名每一年,十二生肖即为十二个动物,他们是按照12年一个循环,每一年都有一个自己的动物,如今年是2017年,也就是鸡年。

首先,中国的新年与西方的新年不同,中国新年是按照中国农历的日期计算,是中国农历日历的第一天。它通常是在一月末二月初。我们叫做“春节”。

在课程开始之前,首先通过一幅图片的展示询问学生都为圣诞节准备什么装饰,从而引导学生看中国人会为春节准备什么样的装饰。当春节快要来临的时候,人们会忙着写春联,贴福字,有些家庭还会贴年画和窗花。其中最有代表性的要数“福”字了,过年的时候家家户户都会在家门口贴上福字,中国人认为红色是吉祥的颜色,而福字代表着幸福和好运。

这节课要求学生们给汉字“福”图色,拿到左边图片的学生要先画一个菱形的框框,拿到右边图片的学生需要写上福字的英文解释。关于颜色的选取,你可以用黄色或黑色来图这个字,但是对于背景色的选择,只能是红色。

通过这节课的学习,让孩子们了解了一些关于中国春节的知识,并且记住了最具有春节代表性的符号:福字。
