Klipfel Airlines

Welcome aboard Klipfel Airlines! This is your captain, Captain Klipfel, speaking. Please fasten your seat belt and prepare to hear about Holidays Around the World.
This week 1st graders began their trip around the world. We are creating a Holidays Around the World Scrapbook as we travel on our adventure.  We began in the United States and discussed traditions and customs of different holidays celebrated. We then boarded Klipfel Airlines and flew to Mexico. Students learned about poinsettia plants and holiday piƱatas.
Working on our scrapbook
Our next stop took us to France where students put their shoes by the fireplace, like traditional French children.
We even discovered a prize in our shoes
Later this week we'll jet set off to Italy and check out the Leaning Tower of Pizza, Coliseum and Venice.  Our flight on Klipfel Airlines will also depart to Germany. We're ready to sing O Tannenbaum, a traditional German song and discover that Germany is famous for their gingerbread men. Have your child share what new customs and traditions they're learning.  Bon Voyage!
