Santa Says is a game perfect for reinforcing Christmas Around the World. The game is similar to Simon Says and includes a gift giver and tradition for different countries. Here is a group acting out "Papa Noel says - Let's go to Mexico and swing at a piñata". These kids are older elementary, and they got into acting out the traditions. So fun!
Reindeer Fact and Opinion is super for language and artic goals - have students practice sounds while reading the cards. And Target even had a cute reindeer bag that the students got to draw their cards from!
Antlers and Santas targets antonyms and synonyms. My students are obsessed with sticky-tac, so I used it to my advantage. I hung one set around the room, then the students got to hang up the corresponding picture with sticky-tac. Oh my goodness, there was so much joy! Antlers and Santas even comes with a recording sheet - perfect for circling artic words or working on putting words in sentences.
Just 4 more days! Merry Christmas!
