Now to the belated post!
On Valentine's Day Ms. Wu's 7th grade Mandarin Chinese Class students had the opportunity to learn how to make authentic Chinese Dumplings. Ms. Wu brought in dumpling wrappers and a bowl of chopped scallion and scrambled egg that she had prepared at home. She then taught the students how to properly dampen the wrapper so it would stick, fill it with just the correct amount of filling, and pinch it closed so that it wouldn't spill out its delicious filling when it was boiled. We were so fortunate to have Ms. Wu's mother assisting. She was on an extended visit from China, and the students greatly appreciated her warmth and expertise in assisting them. Enjoy the experience through the photos below.
