  2. And...a great idea for Christmas is to wrap up Christmas/Holiday/Winter books in wrapping paper. Each day you get to unwrap a present and read the story. It's incorporating reading and a surprise kids look forward too!

  3. I do team holiday puzzles. Grab several 100 piece puzzles with holiday scenes and have students rotate to different ones to complete.

  14. I love using a holiday passport type with the kiddos. We learn about the different holidays in November and December. We spend several days learning about the holiday and then we capture the learning in our passport. :)

  23. I follow your blog and TN store! My favorite activity for the holidays: I buy a pack of cards from the dollar store and I cut them up jigsaw puzzle style, and the kids have a blast trying to piece them back together. I also write messages inside the cards, some sweet, some silly...they love it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. If I were back in the classroom I would do small presents.
    Sub Hub had a cute idea today. You hang a paper chain to count down till Christmas. Your class breaks a link and reads what was written at the end of the day. For example play Santa Says, Freeze Tag, read a Christmas story, etc. Then you do it together. :)

  34. A favorite holiday activity of mine is to read a Gingerbread Man story and have students decorate their own Gingerbread Man any way they wish. As the story is told, Gingerbread cookies are eaten. The next day the students share their creations and hang them up onto our "Have A Sweet Holiday" board.

  58. my favorite Christmas activity is an art project. You get a white, silver or blue bulb. paint the kids fingers and just the top palm of their hand. press the fingers/hand onto the bulb and it looks like snowmen. you can add glitter to the bottom part where the snowmen are 'standing'. when they are dry, have the kids draw a carrot nose, scarf and eyes. they turn out super cute.

  59. I follow your blog! One of my favorite activities to do around the holiday with my kiddos is our countdown santa. We make a little santa with a hat and beard. I start it when we have 2 weeks left of school before Christmas break. The beard has the number of days we have left (this year I started at 13 instead of 14 because 13 fell on a Monday). We hang them on the chalk ledge in the front of the room for display. Each morning we put a cotton ball on Santa's beard to help us count down until school is out for break. I am hoping to get my templates up soon to share with everyone if I can figure it out! I am still a new blogger and am trying to get it all together!
    Hopefully you can check it out soon!www.bloomingintofirst.blogspot.com

  64. I have an "Ornament Day" each year. Today was that day. The afternoon after lunch is spent rotating through 4/5 stations with the help of some great parent volunteers. Each station makes an ornament. I keep 2 ornaments per student at school for our tree and the kids take two home. Very neat and kids love that they get to make ornaments in 3rd grade. It only takes about an hour.....I can spare that!

  70. I follow your blog and TN Shop! My favorite thing to do around Christmas is Gingerbread Men/Girls, etc. We have always made the applesauce and cinnamon gingerbread people and lots of other fun activities. We do glyphs, rewrite the story using a different character such as "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread ______". Kids then finish the story following the regular storyline but using their characters. They turn out so cute! My favorite last year was a Gingerbread Cowgirl!!

  77. One of my favorite holiday activities is lining up all the chairs (like a train) and having the students "board the polar express" where they watch the movie.

    I also give the kids free reading/writing time while we listen to music and drink hot chocolate.
