The Moon Festival

The Moon Festival is next week. Of all the Chinese holidays, I think this one is my favorite.

I adore moon cake molds and think they are really beautiful. I think moon cakes are really beautiful too, even if they do taste like something off the bottom of someone's shoe.

I'm going to be in both Michal and Kenna's classes next week to talk about the Moon Festival and I thought some of you might be planning to do something in your child's class too.

Last year I posted what I put together for the girls' Kindergarten teacher here. I thought some of you might like to know how to find the information again.

This year I'm actually doing the presentation in both their classes and I've modified what I'm doing just a little.

If you're doing something at your child's school, I'd love to hear about it!

    I would LOVE and appreciate a copy of your lesson plan! So glad I stumbled onto your blog. THis is wonderful!
    Thanksin advance!


  2. Diann,

    I'd be happy to e-mail you the lesson plan. I just need your e-mail address.


  3. I think mooncakes without the yolk are quite tasty. For me, it's the yolk that makes mooncakes a bit unsavory :)

    Have you tried snowy mooncakes? They're a bit more expensive but are totally worth it.

  4. I need the lesson plan too please. I remember reading this last year and thinking....oh I want to be like Kristi and do that next year...well here it is next year and I have a week to try to throw something together:) I am not sure I can order all of these things in time but I can peruse China town and see what I can come up with.

    I would love a copy of your lesson plan to share with my two daughters classes. You did an amazing job last yr. I'm sure the kids loved every part of it and are looking forward to it again!

    Thank you so much! Kim Evans

  6. I would LOVE a copy of your lesson plan as well! I have gone into my daughters class for CNY to do something, but never Autumn Moon Festival. This would be a lot of fun.


  7. Thanks for the lesson link. I can't wait to check it out and use it.

    I have one for Chinese New Year I would like to share with you. I teach PE so I had my Daughters Kindergarten class and another K Class come into the gym but you could do it in the classroom.

    Can you email me your email address and I could send it to you?

    Thanks again.


  8. I forgot to say THANKS for the Moon Festival lesson ;)

  9. I would also love a copy of you plans. You have some great ideas. Thanks for sharing!

    Would you be able to email the lesson plan for the Autumn Moon Festival?? I do not need it for this year,but would love it for when my daughter goes to Kindergarten next year! - THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH!

  11. I did my own thing with your ideas. I took our mooncake mold and used the clay...I bought some mooncakes at our local Asian store (the kids LOVED them???)and spoke of the culture and traditions of the holiday. Thanks so much for giving me the was greatly received.

  12. Please send me a copy of the lesson plan. We are using ROUND AS A MOONCAKE in our FIAR book club(homeschool). I am passionate about season festivals and would like to share this angle of the book with the children.
    thanks in advance
