Here's a super-fun classroom management activity for December, that students just love. "Elf Help!" is an interesting way to "Countdown to Christmas".
I've also included "Vacation Countdown" and "December Countdown" headers for any of your students who don't celebrate this holiday.
Doing countdown activities, helps little ones wrap their heads around the concept of time, which is a pretty abstract concept for most.
They're also a quick, easy and fun way to practice numbers, as well as counting backwards, which is one of my report card standards.
Have your students color the elf's "stockings" in an ABAB pattern to reinforce patterning.
I've included a traceable calendar of December, for years 2018-2030, plus a blank calendar, so your students can fill in their own numbers.
Tracing and writing the numbers as they countdown to Christmas/vacation, is also a fun way to practice numbers, as well as have a visual of "time passing".
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a December that's filled with lots of magical moments.
