Christmas Craft Freebies!!!

Can I just say..... I absolutely LOVE this time of year!!

The lights as you drive down the city streets, the cooler weather, the Christmas music in the stores (and my car!), the joy that just seems to magically fill the air!  I wish it could be Christmas ALL year!

I also LOVE this time of year in the classroom.  Christmas just seems to be one of those holidays where you could do a craft for ANY lesson or activity.  There are so many cute and fun things you can do with some Christmas cuteness!!

This week has been no different.

We started earlier this week reviewing nouns, but going a step deeper and discussing common and proper nouns.

We created these little North Pole Nouns which turned out pretty cute!  (some of my kiddos did NOT want their pole to have eyes.... so they didn't!)

(Sorry for the clarity.... taken with my phone!)

So the students had to write their common nouns on the white stripes and their proper nouns on the red stripes!  

You can get your FREE template of the North Pole Nouns by clicking HERE!
(Their are 2 title pieces - North Pole Nouns and a blank template)

This week in reading we have been all about sequencing.  We have been hitting this skill for a few weeks now, so they are getting pretty good at it!

We read "The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever" by Steven Kroll.  (such a cute story!)

After reading, we built our "Very Merry Sequencing" tree with the Beginning, Middle, and End!

The template includes the title box, however you can use this template with ANY holiday story!

Last, but not least..... our writing this week is all about poetry!  (these next three weeks really!)

This week was all about the 5 senses poems.  

We decided to be a little different and write a 5 senses poem from the point of view of Rudolph on Christmas!  "Rudolph's Five Senses of Christmas"

They were adorable!!!

So now our hallway is much more Merry and Bright!!!

Let the countdown begin!!!  20 more days till Christmas :)

Have a great weekend!!
