This Christmas Activities Bundle
is loaded with games, writing, and general classroom items. Two games- Scattergories and Taboo
, can be used over and over again in lots of ways. Two writing activities- ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Mad Libs
and Dear Santa…
(a persuasive letter activity) focus on fun and learning, which can be tricky as the holidays get near. There is also a set of Christmas and winter-themed Sticker Charts
to keep students motivated throughout the season. You can read about each individual resource below:
This Christmas Scattergories Game
is a wonderfully fun game that requires vocabulary and word work practice. This is a Christmas themed game so all of the descriptive words that the students generate must be related to Christmas. Just follow the same rules as the original game (directions are included). I encourage students to work in groups so that they can learn from each other. All you have to do is choose a letter as the beginning letter for each descriptive word. This also works well as a literacy center once students know how to play. It can also be used for your class or personal Christmas party or as a fun alternative during indoor recess.
- Student Game Boards with Directions
- Teacher Information
This Christmas Taboo Game
is a really great oral language activity for elementary and middle school. Students work against the clock to get their teammates to guess the TABOO word at the top of their game card without using any of the related words that are on the card. This requires that they use vocabulary and oral language skills to describe words, themes, and concepts related to Christmas.
- directions page
- three pages of game cards (18 total cards)
- one page of blank cards in case you want to make your own
- a scoring sheet
'Twas the Night Before Christmas: Mad Libs Edition
is a fun way to practice grammar and to let students show off their creativity! Students choose 58 of their own words (using different parts of speech) to create their own version of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.
- a mad libs planning sheet for the parts of speech that will be put into the blank spaces in the story
- a "new story" with blank spaces that will be filled in using the planner
- book-like pages (one page for each stanza) with blanks for students to write and illustrate their story.
With this fun activity set, there are so many balanced literacy options:
*Parts of Speech
This Dear Santa...Persuasive Writing Activity
requires students to persuade someone to get them the one gift they just have to have this year by writing a letter to their shopper of choice. Make persuasive writing a fun activity for the holidays. Students will come up with two convincing reasons and support them with details for why they should have this gift. Use the included rubric as a guide for students and yourself.
- Student assignment and planning page
- Student rubric that focuses on components of a letter, persuasive language, and main ideas and details
- Holiday-themed writing paper
This Christmas and Winter Sticker Chart Set
is colorful and fun for everyone. Each chart has 20 spaces for stickers and has a line where student names can be written. There are 4 charts per page. You can use them as a positive behavior tool, for homework tracking, or for any other reason that works for you. They add a little pizzazz to the classroom right when you need it!
These are small enough to be used on top of student desks, or they can be displayed somewhere in the classroom. Otherwise, put them in any place that works best for you. Each of the 27 pages has four sticker charts on it with spaces for 20 stickers.
You'll never have to buy Christmas or Winter sticker charts again because you will be able to print these whenever you need them.
