Holidays Around the Blog!

Happy November 1st friends!,
 
I hope your littles had fun trick or treating last night! I'm still in recovery mode, but it was so heartwarming to see everyone dressed up so cute and excited.
Now the real fun begins...did you know there's only 53 days until Christmas?!?!
Yikes I know, but there's no better time to begin to collect your ideas. Today I'm joining Amy from Learning Lessons With Mrs. Labrasciano for her Holidays Around the Blog linky.
One of the highlights of the holiday season for my students is celebrating Holidays Around the World. I love to expose my students to different cultures and how they celebrate. It's so engaging for them to learn about.
Last year, I thought, "Why not place our Holidays Around the World lessons in a keepsake file?" So the Holidays Around the World Interactive Student Notebook was born!
Throughout the entire month of December, we learn about a different country each day to make it through 15 different countries/customs by Winter Break.
We use several books to supplement our unit. One is a Holidays Around the World book from Reading A-Z.
One of my favorites to read while we are studying Hanukkah is "Latkes and Applesauce"!
Here are a few other recommendations:
 
 
 

We begin by receiving our boarding pass to place in our ISN's:
 
Then we glue our passport in our ISN's so we can glue a stamp on it as we go along learning about each tradition.
Each day, we read about each country's traditions and glue it on the left side of the notebook. My students interact with it by underlining the pertinent information indicated at the bottom of each page.
Then my students create a foldable/craft for the right side of their notebook that relates to the country that we are studying. Here is an example for Italy:
 
Here are some various pictures throughout of our Holidays Around the World Interactive Student Notebook unit:

Come and see all of the other wonderful ideas to kick off your Christmas season!
