It's always a hectic time of year leading up to the holidays - festive, fun, full of anticipation...but nevertheless, hectic!
I chose this year to embrace the season, by spending the 4 weeks between Thanksgiving & the Winter vacation exploring Holidays Around the World.
But which holidays you might ask?
Narrowing down the holidays as well as choosing which books from the plethora of options, was my biggest conundrum. So many holidays & so many books to choose from (just a few are displayed here in this post for you)!
In the end, I based my choices on our Reed community - in the 4 weeks I had, I covered as many celebrations as I could that are reflective of our students and families.
So where did we visit? Today's world is more global than it's ever been & this means many countries embrace a diverse range of traditions and celebrations. Most of these however, have a point of origin so via keynote and some magical stories, we took a trip around the world to visit....
My favorite part about this 4 week exploration? Hearing students make connections between our stories & discussions and their own families or experiences.
May you all enjoy a happy & safe Holiday season!
