Activities for Winter Celebration

Hi friends,

School's out! These five months of school have been wonderful for me. I got to be partnered with a wonderful co-teacher, I'm working at a great school within my district, have wonderful students and parents.

On Thursday, we had our Winter was just incredible! My kiddos worked very hard learning five winter-related songs to sing during our party, we decorated Christmas cookies and we had the surprise visit of Santa Claus!....their little faces was priceless.

One week before....
We were very busy these past two weeks. We were making ornaments, writing our names on snowmen, practicing patterns with colored candy canes, learning our songs and much more.

I loved this activity. The kiddos wrote each letter of their names on a snowman. We then, counted the letters in our names and charted the names according to amount of letters.

These little guys were made out of playdough. They manipulated the dough and painted it with white paint with glitter. Then using twigs, they created the snowman's arms.

One of my favorite winter books: The Mitten. After reading the story, my kiddos were given two pieces of construction paper to lace and put together plus pictures of the characters of the book. They cut the animals and placed them inside their mitten. They were able to retell the story and I was able to check for comprehension, win-win!

Gingerbread kids....without the calories!

These was an independent classroom activity. The materials were provided to them and they put it together to their own creative interpretation.....well, we don't have any snow in San Diego :)

Turn off your alarm clocks and enjoy your well-deserved Christmas break!
