As an introduction to the grade 2 Social Studies unit of “Community Traditions”, you may start, with your class, this binder that is called “our Christmas Traditions”. This is an at-home project that will enable your students to discuss with their parents, their most important Christmas traditions. This is also a way for each family that is part of your class to read through different family traditions as well as special recipes!
In this document, you will find 2 specific pages for each student in your class (there are 13 different Christmas themed paged). One of the pages is for your students to write about their Christmas traditions and the other is to write a family recipe that they use during Christmas time.
In this document, I have included an example of a parent note. I have also included an example based on my own family tradition as well as a recipe in order to see what is expected. I have also included a writing checklist that you may use to grade this project.
I hope you all will have a wonderful time reading through the family traditions within this binder and hopefully will come across a recipe that you will want to use throughout the holidays!
