Even though Christmas is over, I'm going to re-cap some of the things we did just in case you'd like to use it next year.
I found this Santa Claus directed drawing at Hello Kids and loved it. I've talked about my love for directed drawing activities before. They turned out adorable.
I *love* this one... "giving him makeup in case he gets a girlfriend." :D
We also made this Baby Jesus craft from Doodle Bugs!
I was also working on a Christmas printable pack, but unfortunately, I didn't get it finished in time. Here is one of our reading response logs from that pack that we used in my classroom.
These aren't Christmas related, but I though I'd share our listening center logs from the week before break too. I always make up a listening log to go along with our weekly story that focuses on a certain reading strategy. Last week, we focused on retelling the beginning, middle, and end.
They can choose to write or draw, which is great for differentiating the activity.
I hope everyone had a wonderful break! I'm excited to go back and start the second half of our year. :)
