This month, The Teacher’s Magazine prepares everything for the holidays. Get your suitcases ready to go hunting with a poem for children or to visit world heritage sites with older students. In case you’ve forgotten to write your letter to Santa, there is a lovely framed page for you to do so. You can also learn who Pelznickel is and whether he will visit you and your students before Christmas. In the Global Culture Corner section, John Lennon will be present, while in the ICT section we’ll produce talking animations using Blabberize. In case your students want to practise English during the holidays, we suggest some fun activities for them. Last but not least, there are some ideas to work with proverbs and tips to teach science in English in bilingual programmes. We hope you like all the activities and find them useful.
