Each holiday, my "gift" to my students is a spelling test! It is, however, out of 0 points! The students do not know the holiday-themed spelling words before hand, and receive 1/2 point extra credit or bonus for each word spelled correctly.
I teach grades 5-8 and choose words which I think will challenge my particular students. Feel free to use these "tests" for different grades as you see fit. Strangely enough, the students have come to look forward to these test-presents! What an inexpensive and educational gift :)
Enjoy! Please check back as I post other holiday bonus lists, as well!
