Every year I try to base my classroom themes around the holidays. My students are starting a unit about Christopher Columbus tomorrow (I know, I'm late on this!) which will eventually lead to the pilgrims and the first Thanksgiving.
Once I finish with that and we come back from our long Thanksgiving break, we will begin our holidays around the world unit. It's my favorite! We "go" to a different country each day, There are snacks, projects, and tons of glitter! We finish up December with a school wide spirit week that ends with a pajama and movie day before we have winter break! (Last year, I even got brave and did Glitter Jars with all of my students. See the project here!)
I am so glad that it's the most wonderful time of the year and I can't wait for all of the fun things coming up with my family and my students! Stay tuned for lots of ideas and fun!
What are your favorite holiday activities? Do you have any amazing go to projects?
