I have stuffed these sweet stockings with lots of Common Core
They are a quick, easy, and fun
way to practice a variety of standards
Completed projects make an easy-peasy bulletin board
The "Stuff a Stocking" activities provide interesting practice for words that begin and end with the ST blend
The packet includes an alphabetical list of 92 words
that begin with st
, as well as a list of 64 words
that end with the st blend
, plus matching mini-word cards
Use the word cards with the 2 different "Stuff Me" stockings. The teacher calls out a word, and the child holding that card "stuffs" the appropriate (beginning or ending st blend) stocking.
Students can also choose 3-5 cards and write sentences
incorporating the word cards they picked.
They can also write the words in alphabetical order
For the writing prompt portion
of "Stuff It", students gather in groups of 3-4 and exchange their stocking
with each other.
Everyone in the group "stuffs" a Christmas compliment
into their classmates' stocking, by writing something nice about that person.
Encourage the use of adjectives
These completed projects also make a nice, self-esteem building
, December bulletin board
, which is particularly appropriate if your school does the "Bucket Filling"
The other writing prompt option, is for students to "stuff" their stocking with a list of things they'd like to find in their stocking
, if money was no object, or you could also write a realistic one.
Finally, I've included 6 worksheets
that are played as timed games
, as well as an "I Spy a Shape" whole-group assessment game
, plus the "Shapes on a Roll" dice game
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your December activities are stuffed with memorable moments.
