Preparing for holidays – Readilearn

At this time of the year, people around the world are preparing to celebrate a variety of holidays. Christmas, celebrated by almost half of the worldโ€™s population, is perhaps the biggest holiday of the year. While traditionally a Christian celebration, its focus for many is now more secular than religious and is celebrated by both Christians and non-Christians. Even within the Christian community, there are many ways in which the festival is observed.

In addition to Christmas, children in Australia are preparing for the end of the school year and their long summer holidays from approximately mid-December to late January. While not as long as that of some of our northern cousins, the six-week break challenges parents in thinking of ways to keep the children occupied, while ensuring that the achievements of the year are not lost before the new school year begins.

In this post, I share some suggestions and readilearn resources to assist in preparation for both.

    Always so topsy-turvey for me reading these! ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish our kids had a six-week break instead of their usual three MONTH break. Talk about summer slide. (I’m rolling my eyes here. I mean, honestly, what did they think would happen?)

      Three months is a long time! It’s longer than all of our school holidays combined. Our school year is usually 40 – 42 weeks. Yeah, maybe three months off all together. But at once? That’s a looooong time. ๐Ÿ™‚
