Here’s a quick, easy & fun Christmas ornament, that’s a perfect little craftivity for party day or the last day of school.
Even the Common Core “Grinch” police, will have no problem finding this an extremely educational activity!
It can simply be done with little ones (PK-Y5) to practice their names, along with letter recognition, and the difference between upper and lowercase letters, vowels & consonants as well as counting.
Older kiddos, (K-3rd) can practice a lot of math:
such as graphing, addition, greater & less than, data analysis, inference, guess-timation, plus comparing & contrasting with a Venn diagram.
I’ve included several worksheets and graphing extensions, plus a "secret" coded Christmas message that you can challenge your students to solve.
Make it a "speed" game, and see who can decode the message first.
Afterwards, students pick a partner and write a secret message to them.
For a sweet keepsake, have children write their name on the back, along with a date and grade, then glue their school photo on.
Laminate your students’ completed projects; punch a hole at the top & add a yarn loop.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping this easy-peasy Christmas activity, will make the last few days before holiday break, more fun and less stressful.
