Winter Holidays Around the World

Sharing is caring!

The kids and I are excited to be right in the middle of our annual “holiday school.” This is the time of the year where I relax my expectations (a little, haha, I am still quite type-A!) and we do things like bake cookies and make snowflakes and have some fun with our lessons.

Winter Holiday Reading

*helpful hint- almost EVERYTHING on this website is free for a little while, so if you subscribe, you’ll get our printables free. It’s a pretty sweet deal.*

These are the books I have selected to go along with the lessons and make our studies that much more juicy.

Children Just Like Me: Celebrations

If you get just one book for your studies, this is the one to pick up. It’s simple enough for an elementary student to enjoy independently, but its packed with facts and beautiful images.

(Actually, check out the entire series, they are ALL fabulous books: A Life Like Mine, A School Like Mine, Children Just Like Me, A Faith Like Mine)

You’ll also need a general atlas which will give information on population, language spoken and religious traditions.
