This product will make the few weeks before Holiday break fun for the students! Each day the students "open" the present to see what their activity for the day will be! There are 12 different Holiday related activities that help promote kindness for the Holidays, build community and allow students to have fun! The activities could be done in a center, during morning meeting, at the end of the day, or during a literacy block!
Each activity comes with a template or game board to help make the activities fun and easy to use! (All besides reading by the fireplace and making snowflakes). There are 12 different presents and gift tags that contain an activity for each of the 12 days.
Hang the presents on a bulletin board, from the ceiling, on a string along the wall or anywhere that you have room! (Added bonus that they are colorful and create some Christmas decoration for you room!)
I am going to begin on Day 1 with wrapping up the book "The 12 Days of Christmas" and have it delivered to our room to create extra excitement about the activities to come!
