Winter Holidays

December is full of winter fun and holidays. It's a great way to teach about different cultures and read great books. This group is to talk about different ways to keep students interested in their work through the holiday season.

    I think my favorite part of the holidays is getting cards from kids. Each card is so special.

    I agree. Homemade cards or just simple notes/pictures from my students is one of the best gifts of all. It is easy to go out and buy something, but to do something from the heart is special.
