New Year’s Celebration
Coming back after holidays is exciting but difficult. Celebrating the new year by doing the glyph is a great start to the first day back. Having children use the language that is associated with new years is a great way to build vocabulary and to talk about the holiday. I have included a star to enlarge, but I often use the commercial sold star decoration that are often found a party stories. As for the ribbons, I use whatever I have available at the time. Commercial bows may also be used. Be sure to use our free instruction guide for GLYPH!
Books to read to activate this glyph are any books dealing with the calendar or the month of the year.
