These are two of my favorite things to use during the holidays. The Christmas Classroom Management consists of a Christmas tree or wreath with white ornaments. You can print one for each child, attach it to the desk using clear contact paper, and when you observe the child following directions, you simply color in the ornament with a Sharpie marker. When all 10 ornaments on the tree or wreath are complete, give the child a fun-flavored candy cane or special treat. Wipe off and start again. This is definitely a must have during the holidays!
For the Tangram Christmas Race, student race to see if they can make a square using tangrams. This is a fun activity that builds team work and problem solving skills. They also learn things are not as easy as they look!
