Breaking for Winter Holidays

Do you take a break over the winter holidays, or do you work through? If you do work through, do you do your “normal” school work, or do you prefer to do something revolving around the holidays?

Here, we enjoy lapbooking. Holiday lapbooks are even more fun!  We celebrate Christmas, and it’s important for us to know about the holiday we celebrate, but each year we also try and learn a little about other holidays. One year it’s Hanukkah, one year might be Kwanzaa, one might be the Winter Solstice.

There are many ways that you can integrate a holiday into your school day. You could build a word search using special themed holiday words. You could play online games that have something to do with the holidays. We’ve even read A Christmas Carol together, and spent time discussing it. Literature studies for the win!
