'Twas the Day Before Christmas Break...

‘Twas the day before winter break and all through the school
Not a teacher was stressing, she was playing it cool

The stations were set up in the classroom with care 
In hopes that the students would enjoy them there

The children were scattered all around the room
Some playing games, others making reindeer food

Activities were organized for all to enjoy
Including letters to Santa about being good girls and boys

Cookies being iced with green and red
Writing about how it’s done because the teacher said

Playing Christmas BINGO and hoping for a prize
Someone yells “BINGO” to everyone’s surprise

Writing notes of kindness to all of our friends
Hoping this fun day doesn’t come to an end

Fun to be had by one and by all
Now dash away children and don’t run in the hall! 

Hello everyone!  Over the past few years I have had great reviews about my “Pilgrim Days” pack.  It’s a pack intended to teach children about life in the past and is perfect to use as whole-group instruction, centers, or rotations those days leading up to fall break.  If you follow me on Instagram {@mrswheeler44}, you saw that I said I do my best thinking in the car!  I was doing a little brainstorming and came up with a pack perfect for the day before winter break.  I am SUPER excited about this!  It’s full of fun and engaging activities to help you get through that long day! The activities can be used in lieu of a party.  They would be perfect as stations if you have parent volunteers. There are 7 activities/stations included.  I incorporated reading, writing, and math into this pack so your students are still learning while having fun!

  •     Letters to Santa writing templates {differentiated}
  •     Reindeer Food recipe and poem
