With the holiday season upon us, my second grade classes have been researching Christmas traditions around the world. We visited Pebble Go to learn more about Christmas customs that are observed by children in other countries. While we found that some of our traditions are similar, we also found that people in other countries celebrate Christmas in quite a different way. For example, children in Australia often spend Christmas at the beach and children in Sweden eat warm meatballs and red cabbage for Christmas dinner. Once we completed our research, students decided what information they would like to share with others. Students wrote down their information and then drew pictures to go along with it. Once they have finished, all papers will be bound together in a book that they can keep in their classroom to share with others. Students are working hard and have done a great job!
About me . . .
Formerly a classroom teacher. Currently a School Library Media Coordinator. I loved being in the classroom, but now that I am in the library I can't imagine doing anything else! The library is my favorite place to be. From my rocking chair to my ABC rug to the smiling student faces checking out books, the library just can't be beat!
Learning in the Library
I have a fixed schedule in my library which means I get to see all the students in my library classes each week. This blog highlights some of the things we are learning and some of the great things going on in our library!
