Free Christmas Sentence Scramble

Christmas is in there air. I have a tree up in my classroom with ornaments that I purchased a few years ago from Kmart that are pink erasers, pencils, apples and coffee mugs with D'nelean handwriting on them. Adorable. My kiddos have made the traditional red and green patterned chains that we have draped across the room.

This week in class we read many versions of the Gingerbread man story and compared and contrasted them. This week we are going to read Santa's Stuck and write about how to help Santa get unstuck from the chimney. It should be fun. Lots to squeeze in before the break.

I am also going to add this little activity to my centers rotation  next week. It is a Christmas themed sentence scramble activity with a recording sheet.
I hope you guys are enjoying the Christmas season as much as I am. Have a great weekend.

Even/Odd Christmas Freebie

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving break. I have been so.incredibly.busy. I ran a Give Thanks 4 Mile Race to benefit charity on Thursday morning, had a great dinner with family, braved the crowds for Black Friday, wrapped many gifts and went to see the Muppet movie with the kids last night. I can't believe it's  already back to school tomorrow. My laundry and my blog were both sorely neglected this week. Why don't we take care of the blog thing right now, shall we?

For your downloading pleasure I have a cute little even and odd sorting activity. Students sort the ornaments by even or odd and put them on the appropriate Christmas tree. A recording sheet is included.

You guys have yourselves a great final hours of vacation.

Stocking Subtraction

I must admit, I was in a creative slump for awhile. Nothing seemed to inspire me (educationally speaking.) Then, eureka! I found the most adorable clip art (from Goodness and Fun on Etsy) and now I can't seem to stop producing printables for your downloading pleasure. Today I have stocking subtraction for you guys, but you should check back often 'cause more is on the way kids.  For this center, the kiddos have to match the stocking to the fireplace that has the correct difference written on it. I've included a recording sheet ( if you're into that kind of thing). My guys loved this one. Hope yours do too.

Christmas Spirit Freebie

I know there are still two weeks until Thanksgiving, but I have already been putting my game plan in place for Black Friday shopping. Who's with me? With fall yard work complete (thanks to the help of my indentured servants children) I am now ready to put up my Christmas tree. I am of the opinion that if I am going to go to all of the trouble to decorate, I should be able  to enjoy it as long as possible. I LOVE sitting by the tree with the fire place on sipping hot cocoa. My favorite.

To get myself in the Christmas spirit I whipped up a little addition activity with the cutest gingerbread clip art from Goodness and Fun. She is having a sale on Etsy right now; if you buy two, you get two free. Love.

Is anyone else getting into the Christmas spirit yet?
