We Don't All Celebrate Christmas
It is common for teachers to celebrate holidays in the classrooms. Engaging students in celebrations can help build community and foster social development. However, as we continue to move through the fall and winter holiday seasons, it is important that we recognize that we don't all celebrate Christmas. How can we be sure to include everyone? How do we ensure no one feels singled out or "othered" because of their cultural or family beliefs?
Additionally, we want to be mindful that this is most of our first times experiencing holidays during a pandemic.
