Gingie has sent letters, facts and photos from 4 countries so far. (Mexico, Germany, Africa and India) We are having a great time learning about other cultures and how
they celebrate. Parents have helped us to learn traditions and we have been creating an art project from each country.
Gingie will be visiting from Israel and China this week!
If you would like to see more of the letters and photos, you can let me know.
Just a simple form with teens numbers. The children will use tiny Christmas stampers to show the number.
The students will put the gifts in order 10-20 and then record in the boxes and color them to look like presents. Get it Here
A great beginning and ending sounds activity (Link to come)This cute chant is from Shannon Martin! The children have learned it in the pocket chart and will circle the sight words and color it before adding it to their Reading Binder Grab it Here
Our weekly Heart Word station The spin a sight word is from Fran Kramer and the letter/sounds fluency strip is from Julie Lee. See previous posts about the red books and writing book.
Ending sounds practice (an oldie but a goodie worksheet)I can't wait for the students to make this adorable book from Fran Kramer! Run, Run as fast as you can to get it here! Then we will make the bead bracelet to go with it! The kids will love that!
We will be making a banner (Oriental Trading) for our families. The reindeer was inspired by an adorable card from a past student. Good thing we have 2 more weeks to finish them!
Rudolph Directed Drawing. I taught the students how to draw this step by step and then they traced with a sharpie before coloring with crayon. The blue is watered down tempera paint washed over. They were amazed by the way the paint resisted the crayon, especially for the white snowflakes! Like magic!
We will be finishing our Christmas drawing book and lots more with numbers 11-20.
I hope you have an awesome week in your classroom and still have energy for your own celebrating and preparations for the Holidays. Please leave me a comment if you liked this post! They really mean a lot to me!
