the story about ping

"The tale of a little duck alone on the Yangtze River, The Story About Ping is a sweet and funny book with wonderfully rich and colorful illustrations. On a day like any other, Ping sets off from the boat he calls home with his comically large family in search of "pleasant things to eat." On this particular day, he is accidentally left behind when the boat leaves. Undaunted, the little duck heads out onto the Yangtze in search of his family, only to find new friends and adventures--and a bit of peril--around every bend".

We also talked about some literary components like repetition, fiction, and what makes a story a classic. We talked a little about where China is, learned about the Yangtze River and looked at some examples of Chinese culture.


To finsih off this book study, we celebrated by making Chinese Lanterns!


I decided instead of doing a lapbook, I would try putting everything in a folder since we had so many full sized sheets to go along with the book.

I like how you put your 'lapbook' all together-it will be easier to view that way. Great lanterns, too!
