I can’t believe it is already December. I’m not sure where the year went! Here are some national days you might want to celebrate in the school.
December 1st – National Pie Day. Yes, I know that December 1st is on a Sunday, but I say ask everyone to bring in their favorite pie on Monday and celebrate a day late!
December 4th – National Cookie Day. OK, maybe you didn’t make National Pie Day happen. Here is another chance for sweets. Bring in your favorite cookies to share on National Cookie Day. If you happen to be on the subject of color theory, bring in sugar cookies, frosting and food coloring and have some fun making color wheels.
December 8th – National Brownie Day. What is with the yummy treats in December? No wonder everyone gains weight over the holidays!
December 9th – National Pastry Day. OK…OK… I really need to stop now!
Just having some fun, but there is a ton of treat-related national days in December.
In all seriousness, pick one of these days and have some fun with your students.
December 12th – National Gingerbread House Day. Change this to National Gingerbread Salon Day. Divide the students into teams and have them create and decorate a Gingerbread Salon. Put them all out on display and let clients vote for their favorites.
December 15th – National Wear Your Pearls Day. Bring the ’50s into your classroom. Have a contest for the best 1950s complete look. Hair, makeup, costumes—and most importantly, a string of pearls.
December 20th – National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. Post photos of everyone in their ugly Christmas sweaters on Facebook and let your Facebook community vote on which is the ugliest!
December 21st – National Crossword Puzzle Day. Create several crossword puzzles on that week’s theory content and have a great review.
Enjoy your holidays!
