********* A Holiday Curriculum! **********

I hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving break! The Christmas and holiday season have begun. There is a richness of knowledge to be gleaned from the season’s amusements. With that in mind, I’ve taken traditional holiday fare and created a “course-of-study” that will not only satisfy national curriculum standards (so you can relax), but will also let you enjoy this magical time of year with your family. Enjoy my gift to you…
