PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Put some meaningful morning work into your daily routine with these "Top 3 List" activities! Get students discussing engaging holiday topics, creating lists, defending their choices, and analyzing their own and others' decisions.

It's a great way to warm-up students' brains and get the morning started in a fun yet purposeful way.

I provide you with 10 week-long "Top 3 List" topics, focused around ten different holidays or times of the year, in a slideshow format (PDF and PowerPoint included) for you to project onto your classroom screen or whiteboard. For example, during the week of St. Patrick's Day: What are the top 3 places to find a leprechaun? For each day of the week, students will complete a different task/prompt for that week's topic using their weekly record sheet provided.

On Monday, they brainstorm ideas with neighbors and create their own Top 3 List. On Tuesday, they defend their #1 answer with a detailed explanation. On Wednesday, they might compare their #2 and #3 answers or expand their list to a fourth answer. On Thursday, students might be asked to pair up with a neighbor, share each other's list, and negotiate to create a new Top 3 list together. And on Friday, the topic is extended in a fun and unique way.

Holidays Included:
• Halloween
• Thanksgiving
• Christmas (plus a "holiday season" alternative)
• New Year's
• Winter
• Valentine's Day
• St. Patrick's Day
• Earth Day
• Mother's Day

Here are the specifics on what's included in Set Three:

• The same slideshow in a printer-friendly version (in case you can't project the slideshow)
Record Sheets (one for each of the eleven topics) for students to record their responses throughout the week
Teacher Notes to help you get started
