We are 1 week away from winter break, and I am ready for some time off! Our students are amazing, but they are very excited for Christmas and they are bouncing off the walls! Here are a few things that we have been up to these past few weeks to keep them busy:

Letter Spin

Letter spin letter formation writing practice for kindergarten. Reinforce letter formations with this fun, EDITABLE activity.

We have been working on letter formations lately. We are noticing that some students have a hard time with tall/short letters. I made this activity to focus on a few letters at a time, so that we can make sure they can write each letter properly. This is available in my store, and is editable so that you can input the letters your students need to practice:

Hot Chocolate Craft

Hot chocolate craft idea for kindergarten. Students can decorate their own mug of hot chocolate for this fun invitation to create or art piece.

We had a fun hot chocolate themed week, and we made this cute craft for students to take home. I cut out the mugs and hot chocolate pieces, and students did the rest. They had a great time personalizing their creations!

Reindeer Hand-Print Ornament

We try to make a hand-print ornament every year for families. They love receiving them, and they are a great keepsake. This year, we made reindeer by painting each students’ hand brown, and then I drew the details onto them. Finally, I backed them on brown construction paper. They turned out so cute!

Mitten Colour Words

colour word emergent reader books to reinforce color words in kindergarten. colour word recognition and spelling, fine motor practice and reading skills all in one literacy activity!

Mixed in with the fun holiday activities and craftivities, we have also continued to do our math and literacy centers! This colour word emergent reader is perfect for early readers. Each page has a different colour, and students have to colour the picture in. Our students are getting really good at reading all the colour words, and they did a great job with these books!

These cute gift was easy to make, and is so cute! A coworker cut the wood slices for us, and all I had to do was make the candy canes. I used acrylic paint so that the colours really popped, and I am the one who guided their hands to make the candy canes. I hope our parents enjoy this cute ornament!

Chocolate Spoons

We wanted to send home a fun treat for our students to give to their families, and these spoons were perfect! They are so easy to make: melt chocolate (we used a crock pot in the classroom), dip red spoons in the melted chocolate (I bought the spoons for $0.99 at Party City), and sprinkle with crushed candy canes or sprinkles (we let students decide which they wanted).
