Hello, how do you celebrate Christmas with your students? Do you have any activities for learning something about this holiday? 

I like reading stories about Christmas, so my students can learn some vocabulary (I teach foreign languages). During the month of december, I am going to propose on my website several stories in Italian, English and French. I started with "Avventura di Natale" on http://atelierstorytime.com/2013/12/06/christmas-stories-1-avventur.... Enjoy the story!

I've been working on these projects for my students.  We're going to eat candy canes and write poems about them using sensory details and the FREE template linked above. I cannot wait to use the winter holiday QR codes I made with my students!  We're going to learn about different holidays around the world.  With these QR codes, my students will be able to use the iPads to safely navigate to a kid-friendly site or video. We're also doing a door decorating contest at our school!  Mine is still a work in progress, but here's my Pin board full of inspiration.  I'm doing the fireplace scene.  :)

We celebrated the Hindu New Year 'Diwali' by visiting a local temple - all  the colourful sights, scents, tastes, and exotic sounds completely blew the kids' minds!  The kids asked lots of questions and took their own photos on the day; going on to write their own detailed recounts in holiday scrap-books on their return home. Pure magic ;-)

I am guest posting on Book Chook today. The post is a review and activity based on the book Leprechauns Never Lie.

I compiled a list of St. Patrick's day ideas from my library and around the web.  http://messypreschoolers.blogspot.com/2011/03/celebrate-st-patricks...

We conducted a science experiment to see which solution is best for cleaning pennies in honor of Presidents' Day.  While we were cleaning, we made coin rubbings and identified the Presidents, buildings, and symbols on the coins.  Nothing fancy--but we had fun:
