This is the 2nd Set of plans I have written to make your December planning a snap! It is divided into 5 parts, and each part is based on a children's Christmas literature book. Each part has activities that support the Common Core in the areas of comprehension, reading/writing, grammar, math, a craft and a pre-made snack idea. The 5 books used in this set are:
Froggy’s Best Christmas
How Murray Saved Christmas
You may decide to use all 5 books or pick and choose the ones you want. Regardless, you will find that all you have to do is locate the book listed at your library, copy the activities you want to use, send out slips to have snacks sent in and grab some supplies for the crafts.
Don’t forget, these plans can be used whole group, in guided reading or in centers. If you are planning on taking a day off for shopping, no problem! Just leave one of the books and its activities behind for your substitute teacher. Your kids will enjoy the Christmas story and will be busy all day.
