Welcome to December's Pick 3 Party hosted by Inspired Owl's Corner and PAWSitively Teaching and Just Reed! Holiday season is officially here and excitement is in the air. Certainly every teacher knows that! For this month's linky I found some great pins highlighting festive ideas to help you and your kids survive December! Enjoy!
Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Stir Stick
Don't these just look delicious? I saw this and wanted a hot chocolate--right away. This would be easy for the kids to make for a holiday party or to watch a movie and a very special treat they won't forget.
This is a great activity to work on some fancy vocabulary words. Even the older kids would like to contribute adjectives to this poster. The infamous grinch is quite a character and a great example of what not to be. LOL Could also extend the brainstorming to include similies and metaphors, "The grinch was as grumpy as . . . " Make a grinch book. Have every kid pick a word and finish that sentence using their word. Then kids illustrate their writing. Bind the pages into a class book. This is an easy holiday creation and a great way to practice new vocabulary words. The kids will love reading and re-reading the book they authored! Great holiday fun!
Posing with props for pictures has become a very popular activity at parties and events. It would be so much fun to make these with the kids and then take their pictures in front of a classroom holiday display. The kids can really ham it up as they pose with friends making creative, funny poses. These photos would make a great addition on the December page of a year-end journal chronicling the times in your class. This is a great activity for your holiday party--or just a short break from work time.
