What better way to keep your students engaged before the holidays than by playing games that reinforce skills?
Work on categories, making sentences and comparing/contrasting skills in this Christmas themed 4 game set for mixed groups. Three of the games use the same set of game cards, so you can intermix the skills in one activity! A picture card and a word card set are included for varied levels. Kids love to learn by playing games and the variety of activities included will make your mixed groups easier! Use it all month long!
