Happy New Year: School children learn about Year of the Monkey

Chinese New Year classroom celebration teaches children about traditions

In Jayme Pekarske's kindergarten class at Vintage Hills Elementary, students learned all about the Chinese New Year and the various traditions that go along with the holiday.

Children decorated paper plates as "scales" that they put onto a paper dragon Tuesday morning. According to legend, the dragon brings good luck for the next year.

Pekarske stapled her students scales to the dragon head and then handed out Hongbao -- typically red envelopes containing money sent to friends and family at the holiday -- in the form of red bags with fortune cookies and clementines.
