Friday Freebie - Parent Letter about Holiday Celebrations


It's a little early for this particular freebie, but it fits really well with this week's parent communication theme, so you can download it and file it away for later in the year. 

This is the letter that I send out every year before winter holidays (usually the beginning of November so I have plenty of time to get it out, get it back, and start planning). It lets parents know why I like to include holiday activities on my lesson plans and gives them the opportunity to share what their preferences are when it comes to discussing holidays in the classroom.

This is a great way to make sure that I am taking all of my students cultural backgrounds into consideration and to make sure that my lessons don't cause any unintended consequences or difficult conversations. Feel free to download the letter and share it with your own families
