Kwanzaa-We make handprint kinaras.
Hanukkah- The kids made paper dreidels. I wish I could have gotten them a real one. I've got to put that on my to do list for next year!
Italy-LeBefana the good witch was my favorite tradition to talk about. I had not heard of her until I did this study last year. Where had I been???
Germany-Pickel in a tree-My kids laughed and thought it was funny. They couldn't imagine why someone would hang a pickle in a tree. I explained to them that the child who found it received an extra gift. Then they all wanted their parents to hang pickles on their trees at home....silly kids!
Mexico- I love the story of the poinsettia. I've always loved that Christmas flower!
The last day of school, I read The Candy Cane. This book is wonderful!
