Product Description

This is a fun activity to do during the Christmas season, and includes six activities for students to do. The assignment requires access to Excel. Each activity can take between 20 minutes to 45 minutes. You can do it together as a class, use only what you need, or do a little each day--its very versatile! Or you can just give a prize to the student who gets the most done in a limited time. Because it's self-grading, a score sheet will generate their score automatically, so all they need to do is print! The activities are as follows:

Activity #1 - Name that Carol

Students are given the name of Christmas Song that has been re-worded using synonyms. They need to type in the proper name for that carol in the box, AND they have to capitalize every word! Great for practicing capitalization! "Commence Auditory Reception The Announcing Cherubs Vocalize"! (Hark, the Herald Angels Sing)

Activity #2 - Christmas Madlibs

Re-write the classic favorite, "Twas the Night Before Christmas" using new nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc. Students type in 69 parts of speech, then see how it shows up in their story. This one is always fun, and usually the first one they want to play. Also it's probably the easiest of the six.

Activity #3 - Christmas Phrases

Fill in the line from famous Christmas songs! A phrase is given, "12 drummers drumming (3)" and students then type in the next three words--"11 pipers piping". Then for a bonus point, type the name of the song it's from!

Activity #4 - Christmas Budget 10-Key

Christmas is expensive! Let's help kids recognize that by calculating a Christmas budget. The presents and costs are given for a family of six, and students use their 10-Key to calculate the total cost. The assignment is written so that, if they just type the correct answer they still won't get the point. They HAVE to hand type it in like: =29.9+4.99+6.99..."

Activity #5 - Movie Quote Accuracy

This one requires the most typing out of all the activities, and typing it exactly correct! A quote from a movie is given, and students type the quotes exactly. Then choose from a drop-down menu which movie it's from. Excel is limited on it's ability to check for capitalization, (it's either all or nothing) so they can still get the point if things are not capitalized exactly right.

Activity #6 - Paint By Number

Ok. This one isn't really a typing activity. it's more of an Excel activity. Students learn just a few features in Excel--resizing rows and columns, and conditional formatting. When they set the conditional formatting correctly, an image will emerge! This one is actually quite quick, but also more advanced with conditional formatting. But it's not difficult--you may need to give more assistance to younger students, but many of my 8th graders figured it out on their own with the given instructions.

Merry Christmas!
