How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

What are some of the reasons Iisakki is so mean to young Nikolas? How does the young boy respond to this unkind treatment? How does his reaction affect the old man? What can you learn from his approach?

Although counties all over the world celebrate Christmas, each has their own stories and traditions. What are yours? How are they similar or different from the tale presented here?
