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.

When Cornelia notices Joe’s impoverished state, she tries to help him. What are some ways you could reach out to the less fortunate in your community? Why does the Christmas season often motivate acts of charity?

Mrs. Claus is quoted as saying, “If you give extra kisses, you get bigger hugs.” How do you feel about that adage? How could it apply to your interactions with others?
