Three brief poems to use before the semester break. "To Santa" is a just-for-fun tribute to our favorite Spirit of Christmas. "Hanukkah" and "Kwanzaa" both contain information about these two holidays that will help to explain them to kindergarten or prekindergarten age students. All poems have been written by Nancy Bloom, a former kindergarten parapro. These poems were actually used in the classroom, and were greatly enjoyed by the students.
