These Christmas activities are sure to keep your kindergarten or first grade students challenged and focused while practicing their phonics skills, CVC words, nonsense words and multi-step directions. This is one Christmas activity set that challenges my kindergarten students.
Students will use a key at the top of the activity pages, with a Christmas holiday theme, to solve the mystery words. Then, they will complete the activity. Three different pages include CVC word practice activities, where they write the word, say the word, and glue a picture match. There are also three different pages that have a nonsense word focus. Students will write the word and color a picture to indicate if it is a "silly" word or "real" word. Three different pages will have the students solve the mystery sentence and then illustrate what they read. Just for fun, I also added a write the room activity using the key codes.
My average and high students could complete this on their own (though it took a little longer than typical worksheets which I love), and actually stay focused!! A couple of my students did best when I broke the page into steps.
