Post these cards around the room for a fun Write the Room or Word Scavenger Hunt activity that will teach your students about the first Christmas story and give them practice in reading and writing words! Students will use picture clues from the cards to find various words around the room in order, writing their words on a recording sheet on a clipboard. From the angel Gabriel to Bethlehem to Baby Jesus, your students will follow the story of the first Christmas while practicing reading, writing, and spelling!
There are two versions of the cards in this document: a version with labels for each Christmas picture (people, places, objects from the Bible story) and a version with blanks for you to write in sight words or spelling words based on your own curriculum or students' needs. The pre-labeled cards make a great extension to Bible lessons on the first Christmas or a fun Christmas party activity! The blank cards allow you to turn the activity into a sight word/spelling Write the Room center but with a Christmas theme to engage your students in the month of December, while also teaching about the first Christmas!
Picture cards in this file: Angel Gabriel, Mary, Joseph, Bethlehem, inn keeper, manger, sheep, shepherd, star, wise men, Jesus.
This is a great resource for Christian classrooms, Sunday School, Christmas VBS, Christmas parties, and Home Schoolers! Merry Christmas and Happy Learning!
