Here are a couple of ways that I add Christmas to my classroom. Stick around to the end because I have a FREEBIE gift tag to go along with an inexpensive and easy gift idea for your students, friends, and neighbors.
You can find a bunch of Christmas-themed math resources in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. The resource below is a fun division review and coloring activity. You can also find some partner activities and math scoot fun to add a little Christmas cheer to your lessons!
In addition to the Christmas Scoot games, I also created a Christmas Trivia Scoot game. This would be a perfect addition to your holiday party or to fill in a bit of time during the next few weeks.
Grown Up Christmas List
Do you want to mix in a meaningful writing piece? My co-teacher and I created a lesson that starts with your class listening to "My Grown Up Christmas List" and writing their own heartfelt Christmas list. Your heart will melt when you read their final writing pieces.
New Year Goals
The new year is right around the corner! Have your students come up with goals for themselves and track their own progress. I've found that the more you involve them, the more effort they put in!
Snow Day Secret Mission
Another way I add a little fun during the holiday and winter season is to send home a secret mission that cannot be opened until a snow day. So. Much. Fun.
FREEBIE Gift Tag
This is a super easy, super inexpensive gift idea! You can do it for your students, for your co-workers, for your child's teachers, for your neighbors, or for anybody else on your Christmas list!
If you go to www.redbox.com, you can purchase gift codes to be emailed to you. Write a code on this tag, add a package of popcorn, and you're done! Easy peasy! You can download the gift tag in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. Give the gift of a cozy night in!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
