              Wentzville First Graders Participate in
                       Holidays Around the World

  (December 18, 2009) Wentzville, MO… First graders at Prairie View Elementary and
Heritage Primary Schools participated in “Holidays Around the World” this week. The
students learned about how children in different countries celebrate their respective
holidays this time of year. First grade students would “travel” to a different classroom each
day to learn about a particular country and their holiday traditions. Heritage students
carried passports with their picture and room to stamp each country they “visited.” After
hearing a story about that particular country and the holiday children celebrate there,
students then constructed a craft associated with those traditions. “‘Holidays Around the
World’ is such a valuable experience where the students are able to learn about all of the
cultures that surround us today,” said Heritage First Grade teacher Amy Bielke.
