Well Jingle Bells! Christmas Is Here!

Merry Christmas!  Happy Hanukkah!  And, if you do both, Happy Chanukkah!  

I just wanted to share with you some of the things we will be doing in my classroom shortly.  I LOVE Christmas!!!  
We are going to be working some more on contractions....we can tell you how to take them apart but we just aren't sure how to write them!  So....a little more practice is required.

We are going to be playing Scoot, one of our favorite games!  

As always, I am going to be using sight word phrases at my guided reading table with my RTI helps them with their fluency and sight words and BONUS--they love to play the matching game!

And then, this activity came from my new Christmas pack!

We are going to review double consonants by sorting them and possibly preparing from consonant surgery on some gingerbread people!

We have Rudolph and his crew waiting on the sides for some ABC order and perhaps even some puppetry with craft sticks!

And then there is the big one....a new skill....Open and Syllables.  YIKES!  At least the cards are cute though!

We are also going to be reading various versions of the Gingerbread Boy.  We read several different versions and compare the story elements, look for inferences, conclusions, etc.  I LOVE this unit!

This is my all time favorite Gingerbread Boy story!  Who can't help but love The Gingerbread Cowboy even though his eyes look a little evil!

And, this year, I am adding The Cajun Cornbread Boy so that we can do some more comparing and contrasting!

Hope you all have a fab December and find great deals as you shop!   You are welcome to share your great finds in the comment section so that I can go shopping, too!
