Online Holiday Helpers!

* Holiday movies shown the last couple of days before Winter Break can be used to extend and/or review lessons.  TeachHUB.com has some great ideas for using Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Home Alone, A Christmas Carol and even watching a familiar movie in a foreign language.  

* So many faiths celebrate a Holy time of year during Winter, it’s a good time to talk about celebrations.  Edutopia offers a mini-lesson for students to reflect on what a celebration is and why it’s important to remember them more than just one day a year.

* Check out the wide array of Holiday lessons at Education World, especially “Rename That Tune” for vocabulary enrichment and “Deck the Halls with Literature Trees” to showcase reading comprehension.
