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.

Jingle Bells: What did this family discover was the most important thing to have at Christmas? Is the act of giving presents the only way to show love?

O’ Christmas Tree: What did the little tree accomplish that made the Nutcracker feel she was worthy of a special gift from Santa? What could you do to have a similar effect on the members of your family?

We Wish You a Merry Christmas: Why do you think the gift of music had such a powerful influence on the orphanage caretaker’s personality? Does music affect the way you feel?

The producers of these films are also offering another Christmas title—The Tangerine Bear .

For other Christmas programs to enjoy as a family, check out our list in the Big Picture section titled, Christmas Cinema . While you are there, Sounds of the Season looks at music for the holidays.
