Fa La La La Link Up: Holiday Freebies!

Teaching in December is NOT for the faint of heart! However, Primary Powers is making the week before the holidays a little easier with this FABULOUS freebie swap! Check it out if you need some activities to get you through the next week.

It's time to sequence!!! We've been reading holiday stories and putting them in order. Here are my favorite holiday books to sequence:

Here's our response to There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Bell
And here's the TPT freebie for the above craft
I also made a Christmas freebie to help my kids with ten frames. It focuses on numbers in the teens.

In un-Freebie news...

My awesome team has been keeping our kids focused by doing a unit on holidays around the world. Each teacher picked a country with a special holiday tradition. The kindergarten classes rotate to a different teacher each morning and learn about that country. They fill out an informational book and make a craft.

They made a suit case to take with them on their trip...
...and they fill it with these cute crafts that they make for each country!
Then they practice their map skills by finding the country on the map.
Here's the TPT pack we used
Not a freebie, but super cute!
And finally...
My kids won the canned food drive! We replenished local food banks AND won an ice-cream sundae party (Let's not get too nit-picky over which one of those reasons was the main motivator...). Yippee!!
They even made us a banner!
Happy Holidays!!!!
