Why should primary teachers have all the fun for Christmas? I know, I know...we have SO much content to teach, re-teach, review, practice, assess. So, why not have the best of both worlds? Christmas themed content that is common core aligned!
We are ready for the next week with my Christmas themed literacy and math activities. We have already been having some Christmas division fun. Now onto some more!
Sorry the pictures are so blurry! I am not the best photographer in the world.
For our writing time, I have these common core aligned writing prompts! I have narrative, opinion, and descriptive to get my kids writing in all the genres with a fun Christmas theme!
For reading, I have a narrative story with a theme and a poem. Both of these have a fun Christmas theme! And the best part, they also have common core aligned activities to complete with both texts. Can you say engaging and relevant to the content?
Next up, we will be having a lot of fun in math as we review some of our previously taught skills.
We have a Santa Shopping List where the kids have to use their knowledge of computing with decimals to find the total for each list.
Then, there is a fun Polygon Wish List sort which requires the kiddos to sort the shapes by reading the requirements on each wishlist!
Last up, we have some Christmas candy comparisons. To up the rigor on this one, I am going to have the students draw models to justify their comparisons.
All of these items (and a lot more) can be found in my TPT store here!
How are you planning to have some Christmas fun in your classroom? Are you able to link it to the standards?
