Winter Holidays

Winter Holidays 

One of the most exciting things during winter are all of the holidays people celebrate with their friends and families. There are many different holidays that fall during the winter season. 
Watch the BrainpopJr. video on Winter Holidays. 

No matter what holiday you celebrate, you and your family have special traditions

A tradition is something that family, friends, or another group of people has done for many years and continues to do on a regular basis. 

Learning about other people's traditions is an excellent way to learn  about other cultures, beliefs and more about your friend!

We got together with a Mrs. Broussard's third grade class.  Each student in Third Grade has had the privilege of participating in a 1 to 1 program. This means that each student gets their own Acer to work on in class. Working together we will collaborate on creating a blog comment about our family traditions for the winter holidays.  We will be posting our comments on both our class blog and 

After completing your interview, leave a comment with your "Blogging Buddy"about the winter holiday traditions you celebrate.

What are some traditions you and your family practice over the winter holidays? Which is your favorite tradition? Why is it special?  

Don't forget, excellent comments include:

- complete sentences

- high vocabulary

- questions that can spark a conversation

What scares you?

Each year around Halloween we talk and write about what scares us.   

Some people are scared of insects. 

Some people are scared of the dark. 

Some people are scared of heights. 

What scares you?  Do you like scary stories or movies?
