As much as I love Thanksgiving, Christmas is my favorite time of year to teach! I love all of the creative things that I can implement in the classroom. My Christmas break is kinda strange this year - we go until December 19th. But the bonus is that I have 3 1/2 weeks to do Christmas activities! There is a lot I want to cram in, so I decided to make a schedule of themed activities.
Week of November 26 - Reindeer
Week of December 3 - Gingerbread
Week of December 10 - Elves/Santa
Week of December 17 - Grinch
In previous years I usually give my students a worksheet to practice putting the reindeers' names in ABC order. It comes at the perfect time of year since we start ABC order in November. This year I found an old post by First Grade Parade. I searched high and low to see if there was a template on her page, but I couldn't find one. So I decided to create by own template. You can download a free copy at my TPT store.
I can't wait to go back to school on Monday to make these with my firsties! I plan on using them as a hallway display.
