Winter Holiday Rotation


December 10, 2008

Found In: holiday, team teaching

Our team of five first-grade teachers agrees to a winter holiday rotation every year. Each teacher prepares a lesson to cover one winter holiday, and the kids rotate through the classes all day long. We can fit in four rotations of about 35-40 minutes a lesson. We cover our own class with our lesson on a separate day. Students think this is a very special day, because they are visiting different teachers’ classrooms. Each teacher can focus on one holiday and give it the attention it deserves instead of trying to cover a lot of different holidays in addition to the regular curriculum. We typically cover Hanukkah, Christmas around the World, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year, and Diwali.
