Since there are so many different winter holidays around the world, we decided to teach our students about all of the interesting holidays being celebrated. Since each holiday is captured on just one page of the book, the sensory boxes and the fine motor activities exposed our students to more background knowledge of these holidays. After reading the first line on each page, the students were asked, “is there only one winter holiday” to which the repetitive line answers, “there are different winter holidays around the world”. The students really seemed to enjoy looking at the pictures. Happy holidays to all!!
