    December 2-5

    To kick off the holiday season, our class will be getting a very special visitor from the North Pole! This week is the start of our month long Christmas Around the World thematic unit. We will be learning about some of the Christmas traditions from countries all around the world. This week, we will focus on German traditions during this time of the year. In Germany, children celebrate Christmas in lots of fun ways! One of the major focuses this week will be on the German folk story of The Gingerbread Man. This story originated in Germany and has been retold in many variations. We will be using some of the variations to contrast and compare characters, story plots, and events throughout the stories. We will be using props from the story in our small group lessons each day this week.
