This Christmas use this resource, the Christmas Fun Book, to surprise your students and give both of you a change of pace before the holiday break begins! Included is a packet of interactive activities, games, and writing prompts with a Christmas theme. Students will love making an "Elf-ie" of themselves (drawing of them as an Elf on a cell phone), challenging themselves with mazes, having a tongue twister challenge, and even telling Christmas jokes! To throw in a bit more "learning", I've included an informational text passage about the tradition of leaving milk and cookies for Santa and a fiction selection, Everything You've Wanted to Know About Santa's Helpers! There are also writing prompts and a math game to challenge them even further.
This packet would be perfect to give to students as a gift or use as morning work for the month of December. Students can check off the activities they've completed with the included Table of Contents. A Fun Book Cover is also provided. This is a super fun way to incorporate the Christmas holiday with engaging learning activities!
