During the winter holidays, we need to be aware of the multi-culturalness of our classrooms. We need to make all students feel welcome and appreciated. To do this, I try to focus on the similarities between celebrations and holidays that bring us all together: family, food, songs and light.
This play focuses on light as a symbol and light as a part of many holidays around the world. Some of the holidays it touches on include: Christmas, Haunakha, Kwanza, Diwali, St. Martin's Day, Eid al F'tour, Las Posadas and Chinese New Year. It also includes three song suggestions, with words in multiple languages. This play could be used for a single class, or a whole school performance, depending on your needs.
Celebrate the aspects of the season that bring us together!
