and now available for 4th-6th!
teachers know the school days between Thanksgiving and the Winter Break are
difficult to fill. Students want to be
engaged in the holiday fun, but teachers want activities to be educational. This year you can do both! With these 12 Days of Christmas Lesson Plans
students will be racing to school, excited for what each new day has to offer.
As a class, you will read aloud a gingerbread man story and students will complete a story map. Then you will read another story and the students will compare/contrast the two texts. Next, you will ask “Would you try to catch the gingerbread man or not?” Students will write their answers to the prompt on a writing page. Also included is a fun scavenger hunt for those students who want to try and catch the gingerbread man. (We are guessing all students will want to try and catch that crazy cookie!) After the scavenger hunt, you will come back to class for math activities. Students will play “Roll-a-Gingerbread Man.” They will also learn about symmetry by drawing the other half of the gingerbread man.
