For this holiday season, I am going to post my Christmas Around the World unit for FREE!  Yes, I am feeling generous and want to share with you this fun unit I did with my class.  I know Christmas is about over, but maybe you could use it next year.  Check it out below!

We learned about Christmas in Germany, Sweden, and America.  Then, I created nonfiction books for the kids to read and create posters to share what they learned.  You can find those in my TPT store also.  We have had so much fun during this nonfiction reading unit.  My kiddos even said, "Mrs. Brosey, we are having so much fun, and we thought it was going to be boring!" hah! I love their honesty. :]

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.  Check out the other freebies by going to our Elementary Entourage Blog!

Twelve Days of Christmas

Oh my goodness, the Christmas season is such a special time of year.  I love that it is the season for giving.  I love that all my blogger friends are linking up to have a Twelve days of Christmas celebration on TpT.  Check out the four products that I have posted for $1 in my store.  They are a great deal and definitely worth the dollar.  

I hope you're having a very Merry Christmas season!

I use these math journals every morning.  My students have a binder they keep them in, and when math starts they open up to the next page to solve the problem.  I also play a song and when the song is over, they must be complete.  It is a lot of fun and a great way to practice explaining your answer.

I start this at the beginning of the year and each student has one week dedicated to them.  I love how this works, and the students enjoy doing it.  One even thanked me for letting them do it!  If you want to learn more, check out my post here

These are always nice to have, and an apple goes with every time of the year when teaching!

I made these to go with my ocean themed classroom.  When my students move to the next part of the writing process they move their fish on the board.  I love it!

Christmas gifts

I am always looking for something to do for parent Christmas gifts.  This year I decided to do something simple.  I went to Dollar Tree and I bought pot holders.  They come two in a pack so I don't have to buy as many.  I just use one per child.  

I buy white paint (not washable) and paint their hand so they can place a handprint on the oven mitt.  I use a permanent marker to write the child's name and the date.  Check it out below. 

Then, I have students decorate bags for the gift to be placed in.  I am not sure where I got this idea, but I'm assuming on Pinterest!  I draw the line and write the words and the kids use their fingers to dot the light bulbs.  I just use stamps.  They are so cute! 

I hope this gives you some inspiration or an easy idea! Have a Merry Christmas!
