I know it is only November but the December holidays will be here before you know it. This is the perfect time to get your teaching ideas together! One thing I love to do and have been doing for many years is to wrap all of my holidays books for read alouds in wrapping paper. And then every day a student gets to rip open a "gift" to see what book we will read that day!
Here is an idea of what it could look like...
If you want some fun activities for you classroom this Rudolph one is a favorite of mine! First I read the story Olive the Other Reindeer. Then we brainstorm ideas of what makes a great reindeer and write a persuasive letter to Santa to convince him to hire them as a new reindeer. Students come up with great ideas such as; they can see great at night, their nose smells things from far away, they are small enough to slide down a small chimney, etc. Then they get to pick the color of their "nose." Plus they look so cute hanging up for all to see! Here are some ideas.
