{First Grade} Holiday Literacy Center

Hey, y'all!  We're doing a Grinch/Reindeer Unit next week to finish up the holidays, but in case you wanted a little preview of what we're doing (or need an idea for a holiday lit center!), I thought I'd post one activity I'll include in our literacy centers.

Santa Sentences

You can find specific directions here

In this activity, there are 5 pre-made sentences.  Teachers will cut/laminate the pieces for each sentence and the student will arrange them in a meaninful order.  Afterwards, students will write the sentence on the recording sheet and respond to the question that is asked.  You can find the pieces here and the recording sheet here

I hope you can use this activity!  Please let me know if you're not able to view the links :)

Girl you are full of great ideas! Makes me want to go back to teaching just a little bit just so I can use some of these! Will def. save them in my file for (maybe) use in the future! ;)

I've been MIA lately in the blogworld. Hoping to catch back up SOON! Have a fantastic day!

Wow! Do you make/laminate all of these things yourself?! How do you find the time? I'm sure your kids love the Santa stuff. Good work!

Such a cute idea. We did question sentences several weeks ago. "We used animal sounds with it. What noise does a cow make?" BUT this is WAY cuter. I need to remember this idea for next year!! :)

I'm curious if you teach at a public school, or private school, and where abouts it is....I'm in NOVA and even Dicken's Christmas Carol is frowned upon.
