Celebration of Cultures & Traditions

Over the last few months, we have learned about various cultures, legends, and how each culture has unique characteristics. Children in our classrooms are naturally curious about each other’s cultures and traditions. As we enter the Holiday season, we are already discovering that communities and cultures across Canada and the entire world enjoy an amazing variety of celebrations at this time of year. The similarities and differences of our celebrations and traditions connect us to each other. To recognize the many unique traditions within our own community and families, Grade 2 classes will be having a special afternoon to share all of our traditions. The traditions may be for Christmas or any special time of year for your own family.

On Friday, December 19th, in lieu of our usual class party, we invite all of our students to bring in a favourite holiday or traditional food that your family enjoys (please, no nuts).

Grade Two students may also wish to share their holiday traditions in other ways:

– dress in traditional attire

– teach the class a traditional game

– teach us a song or share a CD of music

– bring in a decoration

– share a favourite book or story

– any other way you might wish to share the traditions you enjoy

 

Please copy and paste the section below with the necessary information:
