Today we discussed Christmas holiday traditions and celebrations.  We started with a quick review of basic prepositions and used a lot of creativity to describe these winter scenes using as many prepositions as we could come up with. Take another look through this slideshow and see how many prepositions you can use to describe these fun winter scenes Winter Scenes and Prepositions Slideshow  Good luck! 

Then we talked about our memories of building snowmen and watched a short film called “The Journey”. A story about a snowman and snowwoman, and their Christmas journey. This film was an advertisement for a department store which many of you guessed correctly. Hope you enjoy it.

After our discussion on Christmas holiday traditions both here and in your home countries we looked at this slideshow of Christmas Trees around the world. (I put the captions under each Christmas Tree, so you don’t have to guess the locations) Christmas Trees Around The World
