Ahhh December!

It's a great month to be a teacher or a student. People are smiling and usually in a great mood, and best of all it's a very short month in the classroom.

We must be sensitive to the needs of students who are missing loved ones due to military deployment, divorce, or even a profound loss such as a death in the family. It is also a time to be respectful of the different beliefs and faiths in which our young people believe.

But, in spite of such necessary precautions, it is always a time of great joy for most young people and for their teachers. A time to laugh and to share and to give freely of hand-crafted treasures. No matter how simple, a gift made lovingly with one's own hands is the one a young person will take pride in presenting to someone they care about.

I have a gift for you that will help you find an activity that is just perfect for your class.
