Included in this product are 9 Christmas items, 9 non-Christmas items and chart paper headers for sorting.
Directions: Print, laminate and cut out sorting cards/headers. Glue or tape headers onto chart paper. Mix up the sorting cards and lay face down. Have each student draw a card and determine if it is an object we use at Christmas or not an object we use at Christmas. The student then places the picture under the correct header.
In my classroom, I paired this activity with the story, Hello, Christmas! By Maryann Cocca-Leffler and handed out cards instead of having them draw one. After we finished sorting, I set it out as a literacy center and put Christmas stickers on the back of the Christmas items, so students could self-assess.
