Miracle On 34th Street (1994)

In this John Hughes remake of the Christmas classic, a young girl (Mara Wilson) wrestles with her cynical opinions about Santa after she meets Kris Kringle (Richard Attenborough), an elderly gentleman employed to play the jolly-old-elf at the department store where her mother (Elizabeth Perkins) works. The old man's quiet charm also has a miraculous effect on her single parent and their handsome neighbor (Dylan McDermott). Get the movie review and more. »

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.

Why are Mrs. Walker and Susan so skeptical about miracles? Is it right to judge the future by past experiences?

What are your favorite Christmas movies? How does your family feel about Santa Claus and some of the other traditions of the season?
