Christmas is a good time to discuss wants versus needs. Toy commercials are non-stop in December, not to mention the heavy amount of sales ads that come in the mail. It’s hard to not get a bad case of the “gimmies”. So, this is a good time to discuss what we REALLY need versus what we want.
In this activity, they will go through toy sales ads and cut out 3 things they would really like for Christmas. They will sound out the words underneath (or you could take dictation). Then they will color the page that has the things they really need. I have also included a sorting page where they can decide if the item is a want or a need.
