This 5 Day Countdown to Winter break is full of winter-themed reading, writing, math, crafts and other fun activities.
These are the 5 secular, non-holiday themes you will find in our 5 Day Classroom Countdown to Winter Break!
Impress your principal, parents, and even yourself as students engage in both fun and learning right up until the last bell rings before your Winter break! Make the most of those last 5 days of school, and give yourself a well-deserved teacher break before the break.
All teachers know the last week before Winter Break is difficult. Students are distracted with their anticipation for the break, so teachers want activities to be engaging yet educational. This year, you can have a balance of both fun and learning! With these non-holiday, Classroom Countdown to Winter Break Lesson Plans, students will be racing to school, excited for what each new day has to offer.
Each day’s lesson plan includes:
a reading and writing activity with differentiated pages
math activities with differentiated pages
a variety of other fun and educational suggestions to match the daily theme
To prepare for the each of the 5 Day Countdown lessons, you will need some type of container to store each day’s materials. We purchased nesting boxes, then taped the daily labels onto the side. Also consider manila envelopes, file folders, or shirt boxes.
We've included a suggested list of read-aloud books for each day, however- the books are not included. Check your local or school library, or most books can be purchased online or in Scholastic’s book club orders. Of course, you can always choose your own book titles that go along with the daily theme.
