So this week, I'm going FULL FORCE in Christmas -
I'm not really sure of the books I'm going to read yet- I have a stash I just kind of pick one that I want at that moment in time - I'm kind of a spur of the moment kind of girl...lol
I will be sure to show you what books I use :)
But that brings up a good question -
Inquiring minds want to know....
What are some of your favorite books to use?!?!?
Anyway, here are the plans!
Remember...click the picture of the plans, and it'll take you to a PDF document to download...when you download the PDF, you can click on all the pictures and links to take you where you can find all the activities (TpT, blogposts, websites, or Freebies!)
My centers are going to be from my 'Tis the Season Literacy Centers...
And my math centers are my 'Tis the Season for Math Centers
In my small groups - I am still going to be working on Subtraction with Regrouping - using my Subtraction Sleuth and reviewing rounding with Jack and Jill - although, after a week, I really only have like two kids who need help with rounding still...
And we're writing our letters to Santa this week -
I'm doing a lesson on wants vs. needs, using Caitlin's activity
I think kids really need help in know what they NEED versus what they really WANT. lol
And so do us adults - who am I kidding?? haha!!
We'll be doing our prewriting (I got the prewriting sheet from Amy Lemons)
and here's a freebie for the letter template - a few different versions
Then we're going to address the envelopes and mail them off! woo!!
For Social Studies - I'm starting with my Holidays Around the World
I've got their passports, maps, and stamps ready to go!!
I'm starting with Sweden, Germany, Italy, and America.
Some other things I've copied off to just have around JUST in case I need them - like for morning work, mythical extra time, or a "I'm really not feeling what I had planned, so I need something different" time.
These packs, I have to get EACH month for - I'm addicted...
I LOVE me some Denise!!
and some Katie too!!
The next few things I'm using in my small groups -
I'm using the adjective activity in this pack (another Katie!)
And from Lori??
Her pack has some possessives and some contractions that I'm going to be using in my small groups...
And we're finishing up with our gingerbread activities next week - I was going to do a lot of fun activities on Friday as a culminating day, but I had about 1/2 my class leave throughout the day for various reasons, and I didn't want them to miss any of the fun stuff!
PLUS, they weren't being very well behaved, so I kind of decided that it wasn't a good day to do it. lol!
BUT, I just found Nicole's gingerbread hunt pack -
I am so excited to do this next week!!
and one last thing - did you know about Santa's Reindeer camera???
You can watch Santa's reindeer - all day, all night.
they have specific feeding times too,
I think we're in the classroom for the 11:00 feeding time, so that'll be cool to show them.
