    Christmas Around the World

    It sounds like you need to do Christmas Around the World. The best way is to ask other teachers in your grade level to participate too. Each teacher can pick a country (France, England, Germany, etc.)to present the history of Christmas in that country. Children really love to compare Christmas traditions we have with other students. We make a pocket book to take from class to class before our students rotate. Students make a small craft in each country and place it along with any informational material in their pockets. Before they enter another country, the students must present a passport for the teacher to stamp with a Christmas stamp. This is also okay to do in only your classroom. But, I would really suggest asking around. For your first year, it can really be overwhelming.

    We also have a Polar Express day in 2nd grade. Each student wears their pajamas, does activities that revolve around the book, and drink hot chocolate. A real success!
