Christmas Book Countdown
At the beginning of the Christmas season, Ms. DeLullo’s class discovered many wrapped books under their classroom Christmas tree. As a special surprise, Ms. DeLullo introduced the Christmas Book Countdown. Every morning students enter her room full of anticipation to see what the book of the day will be. A new book is unwrapped each day and the students take turns reading the book aloud to learn various aspects of the Christmas holiday. So far, the books have been about Jesus’ birth from the animals’ perspective, various legends of candy canes and Christmas trees, and some classics including How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Twas the Night Before Christmas. After all, a book is a gift that can be opened again and again!
