What I want for the holidays…

it's not very expensive after all;

It can't be found in a store or even at the mall.

It can’t be wrapped in a box all tidy and square,

but this gift is something that YOU can easily share

The precious gift of holiday cheer

Inside a book, for children to hear


Teacher Notes

The recommendation from Bonnie Holland’s office is participating teachers notify parents in advance of this holiday opportunity.   Click here for a parent letter. See your campus principal about how they prefer for you to send this message.  Please revise the parent letter to include the details specific to your class.

Katy ISD schools may use themes such as Ramadan, Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa as a part of cultural celebrations … in the study of … literature… so long as the District’s approach is secular and academic, not devotional.  As we share literate with students in December, please be mindful of the different religious beliefs represented in our schools. Katy ISD hopes to create an environment where all children feel valued and included.   As a companion to this video conference project, please provide an intentional balance of additional literature selections in your classroom from which students can choose.
