The Mid-Autumn festival, one of the traditional Chinese festivals, is the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar. It is also the second traditional festival after the Spring Festival in China. Legend is to commemorate chang ‘e.
Last Thursday, CIS arranged students from PreK to Grade 6 to make their own moon cakes in our Panda cafeteria to celebrate this traditional Chinese festival. We also invite parents of our students to make the moon cake with their children together.
In addition, our teachers taught the traditional Chinese legend stories about Mid Autumn Festival and encourage our students to read the stories in English. The legend stories include Chang’e flys to the moon, Wu Kang and the cherry tree, the jade rabbit. Check out those lovely voices and beautiful pronunciation of our students!
