Season's Greetings to All

The holiday season is upon us. Normally in our blog we would share with you our thoughts on educational and social opportunities/issues and provide some connected resources.  However, as we plan for the Christmas break, we would like to share with you some of our all-time favorite seasonal ‘net resources.

The Christmas Story by the Metropolitan Museum is a beautiful site where you can have the Christmas Story read to you while viewing the artwork, you can read the story yourself, or look at the Christmas Story in art.

Some may think advent calendars are a “chocolate” event, but this Advent Calendar site provides Christmas traditions - food, treats, candles, even reindeer - within the context of the bible. Make sure you click on all the links on each page to learn and hear about each tradition.

While spending holiday time with your children, visit the Norad Santa Tracker.   There is lots of information about Santa, how Norad tracks Santa, and more if you click on the Norad HQ link on the side menu. And then, of course, there is the actual tracking of Santa on Christmas Eve - what fun for kids of all ages.

For fun and a time for all adults to be child-like, we always love the Rein Deer Orchestra. This site can’t help but bring a smile to your face.  

All of these sites above and much more can be found on our Christmas Enjoy page.

We would be remiss if we did not mention the Chanukah [Hanukkah] resources we have gathered together to celebrate the eight day festival of lights.

We at wish you the best of seasons, with family and friends.  We look forward to 2015 with great anticipation of what the educational technology world will bring!
