1-2-3 Come Make Some Christmas Ornaments With Me
Here’s a quick, easy & fun Christmas name ornament, that’s a perfect little craftivity for party day or those crazy last few days of school.
Even the Common Core “Grinch” police, will have no problem finding this an extremely educational activity!
It can simply be done with little ones (PK-Y5) to practice their names, along with letter recognition, and the difference between upper and lowercase letters, vowels & consonants as well as counting.
Older kiddos, (K-3rd) can practice a lot of math:
such as graphing, addition, greater & less than, data analysis, inference, guess-timation, plus comparing & contrasting with a Venn diagram.
I’ve included several worksheets and graphing extensions, plus a "secret" coded Christmas message that you can challenge your students to solve.
Make it a "speed" game, and see who can decode the message first.
Afterwards, students pick a partner and write a secret message to them.
For a sweet keepsake, have children write their name on the back, along with a date and grade, then glue their school photo on.

Laminate your students’ completed projects; punch a hole at the top & add a yarn loop.
Today's feartured FREEBIE is also an ornament. It's a fingerprint Christmas tree, sure to become a keepsake as well.
This little craftivity, is a terrific way to review the concept of +1 more and counting to 10, and includes a poem for the back:
"My fingerprints as you can see, have made a lovely little tree. They're stacked up straight and oh so tall, with love from me when I was small." Children sign and date.
Thanks for stopping by. I've got to hustle off to go buy the ingredients to make Christmas cookies.
That was one of my favorite memories with my Grama Lydia, and I hope to make it an annual tradition with Kaiden (3) & Kaitlyn (1) who are coming over today. Wishing you a love-flled day.
