|The New Year's bow: My children bowing in front of my father-in-law. Afterwards, he gives them money.|
I know Korean publishers have produced them, but I don't know of any others in English. (If you do, please tell me.) So my ears and eyes will be searching this weekend for fresh story ideas about this holiday.
I did make something about Lunar New Year from Korean culture to use in my classroom. I put it in my little Teachers Pay Teachers store. I've already sold some.
What about other lesser-known holidays told from your culture or background? Kids and adults would appreciate learning how a variety of people celebrate. It's important to keep traditions alive and pass to the next generation.
And for those of you needing ideas in your Idea Notebook (hint, hint Storystorm), I hope something here will help.
Now go scour the calendar and find those holidays. How can you add your spin on it?
Happy Lunar New Year!
