Tomorrow begins the season of Advent. To the right you can see that I have posted my Advent Pinterest board with ideas that you are welcome to follow. I finished my Advent wreath for my home because I never had one for my house, only for my classroom. I decided I needed to bring the spirit of Advent into my home, especially this year. I also created another Weebly site which is an online Advent calendar for my family in hopes of teaching my family more about the true meaning of Advent. It was very easy to do and you can find the directions here. There are several more available on the web. If you want to take a look at mine you can find it at www.merrilladvent2014.weebly.com. I also suggest you look at this Symbaloo mix of Advent videos - you can open one a day with your class. I never realized how many resources that were out there! I think we need to use these to bring the true meaning of Christmas back to our students.
