Winter Break


This year our winter break begins on December 21st and goes through January 1st. Here are suggestions to keep students actively learning during this time away from school.



  • When driving in the car, ask your child to read signs along the way.

  • Read a chapter book together. Let your child select the book.

  • Look through the local paper and find community events your family can attend, like the Silver Falls Holiday Fest on December 12 and 13. See article below.


  • Write greeting cards to friends or relatives.

  • Make a wish list.

  • Start a pen pal with a fellow classmate or relative.

  • Make a winter journal and decorate the cover in a fun winter theme.


  • Play math games on line.

  • Play a board game like Monopoly or Yahtzee. 

  • Let children pay for purchases. Ask them how much money they will get back.
