Holiday Customs Around the World

Here are the winners of my Past and Present unit. Excuse the not so pretty display... it's 3:30am and I am getting a little too lazy!
Congrats Michelle and Cathy.... check your emails. Val - email me! :D

If you'd like to check out the unit for yourself - just click the pic below. :D
In a couple weeks, November will be over and all of my bulletin boards for this unit will be coming down, so I can put up what the kids do for Holiday Customs Around the World.
We will write our parents a special letter and give it to them in a poinsettia gift from Mexico... but first it hangs on my wall.
We will leave carrots and hay in our wooden shoes from Holland for Sinter Klaas's horse.
We will make a menu for serving breakfast in bed, in the Swedish tradition.
We will learn about German tannenbaums, decorating them and we'll research our own family holiday traditions.
We will learn how to play and make a dreidel and discuss Hanukkah and Israel.

We will not only put on a play for our families based on 'Twas the Night Before Christmas", we will also make a cute little stocking cap wearing, sugar plum visioning, non-stirring mouse to go on our walls... and we'll write about what we invision the night before Christmas.
It will be a fun month.
It's a huge, fun unit. Click the pic to go check it out!
