    Last year I actually had another teacher come in and talk with my 3/4th class about myths...using Santa and the Easter bunny as an example. You should have seen the kids faces! She felt so terrible! We then had a discussion about how some people don't believe but I do...etc. They seemed to be ok, but I was amazed how many believers there where!

    I have that teachers son this year in first grade, and I've threatened ....(I am kidding!

    In our room, we've started talking daily about where we see Santa's influence (the spirit of Christmas). We talk about the elf that visits our room or home and leaves little notes about what they see that they like...Allison helping Tyler pick up his crayons, Mark making a good choice etc. It works amazingly well, and the kids haven't questioned the presence of Santa, because they see it every day int he little things.
