It’s that time of year where you’re reminded that we’re counting down to Christmas at every turn. For me, it was a toss-up for dirtiest classroom moments with Hallowe’en. I didn’t forbid candies in my classroom and somehow I always thought that there would be a bit of reciprocation of putting wrappers in the garbage can.
Wrong again, Doug!
I do remember one year I was being particularly creative and had a self-created Computer Science Advent Calendar on one of my bulletin boards. I thought I was being particularly genius introducing the concept. But, everyone saw through it; it was just a veiled attempt at something educational. I did a lot of work researching builders and even more work coming through with some activities to go with each of them.
This was long before research is just a simple Google search away for each.
Speaking on the Internet, if there’s something that can be made digital, it will be.
So, it should not be a surprise that the NorthPole has gone digital. (Flash required)
So, Santa’s Secret Village is there for all to explore.
There are lots of puzzles, writing activities. crafts, cooking, weather, …
Take a few moments to look around and enjoy.
Digital sure makes my bristol Advent calendar look pretty lame.
