Virtual Advent: December 4, 5, & 6

Somehow I mistakenly believed that on my trip I would be able to find a moment or two to post these advent entries. Yeah -- didn't quite work out as I planned! But, at least I can post them now and get caught up. Don't miss these posts!

DEC 3rd
Children + Poetry = Warm Holiday:
"As many of you know, I teach second grade. Each month of the school year, my students memorize a poem and recite it to the class (or to me alone, if they’re too shy). Poetry is a very important part of my life, (my grandmother was a poet), so sharing poems and listening to 7 and 8 year olds reciting them is a joyful part of my job. My students are busy practicing our December poem, and working on art projects that celebrate light during this cold and dark month."

DEC 5th
Holiday picks for the kiddies:
"Whatever you end up reading this holiday season, I hope you have fun and create some great memories. This is a great time of year for reading aloud to little ones. So whether you're a parent, a grandparent, aunt or uncle, make some time to cozy up with the little ones in your life!"

DEC 6th
More delicious holiday reads:
"I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is to read holiday themed books. Here’s the thing about Christmas books…I think they get a bad rap. They’re sort of stereotyped as automatically cheesy, but that’s not always the case. I think there’s something out there for everyone! And so without further ado, here’s a list of Christmas books for everyone!"

Christmas in Poland:
"Today in Poland, children wake up to presents from St. Nicholas (Święty Mikołaj). I am writing about this particular country because I am a native of it and have only been living in the U.S for 8 years. I figured I would talk about two aspects of Advent and Christmas that are near & dear to me: tradition and religion."
