Today we are expanding on our studies of china by learning some about Chinese idioms. I have a kanji kit ( I realize it is Japanese) that we used to write the idioms. We remember the story of Ye Gong from a story that we read last week. It tells of a boy who loved dragons but when faced with one he finds that it is not what he thought. This refers to someone who makes many claims, but when tested they prove to be false.
The kids had a blast grinding their own ink and painting the characters.
