I just got finished teaching an Easter lesson to all my sweet students. My teammate and I were just talking the other day about how fortunate we are that we have this opportunity. What we are able to share in our Chinese classrooms would not be allowed even in a US classroom. What an awesome privilege! This year I showed a short Easter movie and read a book, then did a quick Easter craft. They remembered a little about it from last year and they were also able to connect the Christmas and Easter stories together. Hopefully they will hear this story for at least the next 3 years!

This year for our Easter craft I gave the kids a piece of paper with an egg outline that they got to decorate however they wanted. Crafts are hard in China, especially since I have over 200 kids. We just don't have any supplies. So an Easter egg was the best I could come up with!! My students are very creative and they made some beautiful eggs. Several of them were also made into monsters by my little boys. Oh well.

Here are some adorable pictures from class...

One of my favorites- the minion egg. In Chinese they call them xiao huang ren which literally means small yellow person.

I think he's a friendly monster.

Happy Easter everyone!!
