During the holidays, we don't want to be like the Grinch, he did provide some words of wisdom in the recent movie remake: "Resist the present" and "Resist the cookie" were two of the phrases he used in this clip. While we don't need to resist all spending and eating during the holidays, we should consider ways to resist over-indulging. For example, consider Benjamin Franklin's famous quote, "A penny saved is a penny earned." Have students read through the Tampa Bay Times NIE supplement All About the Benjamins so they can discover some ways to save over the holidays. Then have them create a social media post where they can create a saying or a meme about how to "resist" overindulging during the holidays.
Have a great holiday season and we'll see you in the New Year!
