Using word work on a regular basis is a wonderful way for students to practice their phonics skills and practicing their sight words in a fun, hands on, and engaging way. This word work activity is truly one of the most versatile activities that I have ever used in my 33+ years of teaching. I have used it with K-4 students with great success. If you are looking for a way for your students to practice sight words, phonics, word families, adding prefixes/suffixes, changing out a beginning, middle, or end of a word to create a new one, or making multi-syllabic words, this is an activity that you will want to check out.

Included in this product you will find eight different word work activities that encompass a December/Holiday theme. You will find Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa word activities, along with general December/Winter activities too. Post the phrase on your magnetic board using your favorite set of magnets any of the following phrases:
❄️Dynamite December
❄️Wonderful Winter
❄️A Great Miracle Happened Here (Hanukkah)
❄️Happy Hanukkah
❄️Merry Christmas to You
❄️Habari Gani (Kwanzaa)
❄️Guide My Sleigh
❄️Family Traditions

All of these lessons come in a color version should you choose to create centers with them as well as B&W versions for reproducing for your class. You will also find letter cards so that you make make individual sets for your students should you prefer to use those instead of magnetic letters. You will get more details on how I use this activity in my classroom inside !

You will find your students practicing all types of word skills when using this activity regularly and asking for it again and again. Subs too will love you if you leave this activity in your absence. And your kiddos will remain engaged and interested in participating.
