The holidays are rapidly approaching! I always enjoy using as many thematic resources as I can this time of year. This pack is designed to be used during the month of December as students’ minds are focused on Santa, jingle bells, and candy canes. It will appeal to their mindset, while engaging them in meaningful learning.
Cause and Effect is an essential reading skill that younger students typically need repeated exposure to. This pack could be used to review, or even introduce, this skill. As always, use the materials contained within to meet the needs and abilities of your students.
The following items are included in this pack:
for display in the classroom
use WG, in pairs, or independently; students match each cause with its effect and record their matches on the provided recording sheet
*Christmas Cause and Effect Mini Book
students will define cause and effect, identify effects to stated causes, identify causes to stated effects, and create their own cause/effect relationship
*List of holiday books with cause and effect
*Cause/Effect Flap Book
use with any holiday book; students identify two cause/effect relationships in the book
*Whole Group Cause/Effect Holiday Light Craftivity
students identify cause/effect on a Christmas light and attach to ribbon/yarn to create a string of lights that can be displayed in the classroom
