Even though it's definitely NOT my favorite Christmas song, I couldn't resist making math task cards for The 12 Days of Christmas. The cards are mostly multiplication word problems, but I threw in a little addition, subtraction, and division word problems as well. You can download these Christmas task cards for FREE by clicking <here> or on the pictures below!!!
I also love incorporating seasonal activities into my literacy instruction. I absolutely LOVE reading Christmas books to my students, because there is just something special about that time together, so I've created a week long literacy unit based around five popular Christmas picture books.
This unit started as just a simple read aloud for my own students, but over the years it has grown into a week's worth of reading and writing activities that students love (and I do too)!
The books included in this unit are:
- Snowmen at Christmas
- Olive, the Other Reindeer
- Night Tree
- How Santa Got His Job
For each book there is a reading activity, a writing activity, and I've tried to incorporate art as much as possible. For example, students can make a snowman Venn-Diagram when reading Snowmen at Christmas, and if you're limited on time or resources I've included premade activity sheets (color and black & white).
The writing activities include creative graphic organizers and cute Christmas themed paper. I particulary like the persuasive writing piece where students write why they should become the next Santa Claus.
There are also six basic comprehension questions for each of the picture books.
