This year I’m finding that my go-to seasonal activities are foreign to my Arizona students. Since they don’t really have winter (we laugh all the time about what they think ‘cold’ is and then I show them pictures of snow and tell them tales of -22 degrees), I’ve stopped using snow stories and activities. It’s hard to know the sequence for building a snow man if you’ve never seen snow! But typically, I google books related to a theme/season/holiday and build from there what I can find for free or cheap. I try to use literacy units with my younger students. I also ask if they celebrate certain holidays before diving into holiday activities.
