🔍 Key Takeaways from Kiah and Ria

  • Holidays around this time can have a huge focus on religion and belief. Consider the symbols around each holiday if you’re not keen on having the religious aspect.
  • It’s all about learning, even as an educator! Taking time to check your bias as you learn more about different cultural beliefs is also important.
  • Take the time to involve your families. Ask them what holidays they celebrate this way you can celebrate throughout the whole year and plan for appropriate activities.
  • Celebrations can be a unique experience for your classrooms!
  • Make sure you have all the facts and don’t be shy to seek help from people who celebrate certain holidays. You don’t want to instill the tourist approach in children.
  • Take time to invest in quality books, and plan activities around them. This way children can relate to the story and you create more meaning behind the activity.
