Fortune Cookie Fun!

Finding answers from a variety of sources

As part of Asian Heritage month, we celebrate our learning with a traditional Chinese tradition – fortune cookies!  The students have so much fun opening their cookie to find good wishes for their path inside.  My students learned that when picking an item like this, there is no such thing as choosing the wrong one.  You see, for some reason, individuals ALWAYS end up with the perfect message that was meant for them.

Prior to opening the cookies, we always spend some time in thought.  We take an opportunity to think of a question about our own personal life that we wish to have answered.  Many times, upon opening the cookie, the answer is revealed to us – what magical ways the universe works in!  After the class has had a chance to digest both their message and cookie, we share our fortunes aloud.  It’s at this point that you will be amazed by the perfectly placed messages in each person’s hand.  Students are often proud of these profound statements, especially if you have assisted them in understanding its association to them.

So, why not tape the fortunes to each desk as perfect reminders of every individual’s uniqueness and promising path ahead!
