Message from a Teacher:

"Thank you so much for the wonderful Advent Calendar! This is the second year I'm using it in my class. The students love it and learn so much. I have turned it into an oral communication and mapping skills activity. The students locate on their own copy of the world were each country is located then they write important points about how each country celebrates. They also do predicting based on the flag."
