Holiday Stories and more- What I am Teaching This Week.


T'was the week before break and all through the school the students were antsy and the teachers are too!

ONE WEEK TO GO! I'm sure you classroom is just bursting with energy these days just like mine is...right?!?!

So, this week since we only have 4 days I am taking some fun Christmas stories and using them to help build those comprehension skills!
During the Cyber Sale, I found this amazing pack! It has great ideas to go along with many holiday stories. I am going to be using the 4 shown above. What I really like is there are ideas for books that I can use in January when we return too! Click the picture to check it out on TPT.

The activities range from sequencing, identifying story elements, character analysis, cause and effect and more. There are even math activities to go along with each story too! I can't wait to use them this week.

We have been working on sequencing A LOT lately! I have been using these pictures worksheets and letting my students put them in order and then write about them. This week we are working on how to bake cookies!




As you can see I have the differentiated by the number of pictures to put in order. Want to try them out in your classroom? Click here to grab them. 

I  also made this pack of printables that works on sequencing all kinds of activities using pictures! They were just posted this week. Click the cover to check them out

Our literacy centers are all about this topic too!

We are using these cards as a write them room activity and for my higher students, they will be putting these words in ABC order.




I had to have some sentence scrambles for them to work on this week too! These are from my Holiday Sentence Scramble pack.

Another purchase I made during the sale was this pack of literacy centers

I love how I can differentiate these for my students! Some students will be working on skills like
CVC words
Real/ Nonsense words
Complete or incomplete sentences
Rhyming
Noun/ Verb sort 
and TONS more! 

All with a cute December theme. 

Hopefully, with all these fun and engaging activities I won't have to scrape too many kids off the ceiling...hahaha

Before I go I wanted to let you know that today I am joining some TPT sellers for A Day of Giving Back

I will be donating half of my sales today to the Pan Can Network. You can read more about why I picked this organization by clicking here.


I would love to hear what you do in your classroom this last week of school too!

Have a wonderful week friends.
