So, we have been busy learning about "Christmas Around the World" this week. On Monday, we shared our own Christmas traditions and made stockings. On Tuesday, we listened to The Legend of the Poinsettia and learned about Christmas traditions in Mexico. We made poinsettias from red and green construction paper. Before moving on to France on Wednesday, I was reviewing with the students what we had learned so far in our journey. We were discussing what we remembered about Mexico and I asked, "What was the name of the flower we made that came from Mexico?" An eager student waved his hand in the air and gave me that "I know, I know" look so, I called on him. He proudly said, "The Mayflower!!!" Bless his heart! Too much information crammed into his little brain in the last couple of weeks...
