Linking up with Doodle Bugs for Christmas Cheer


I wanted to share some of our Christmas theme activities while linking with Doodle Bugs Teaching.
Adapted books are a great resource. I find that hard page books stand up the best.
 This is a simple matching activity for counting backwards from 10 to one.
Folder activities are always easy to put together.
Here is another matching activity for letters while decorating two trees. 
Book and puppet activities are always popular!
Are you Grumpy Santa? makes kids laugh and gives them a different point of view of Christmas Eve.
The Santa for coloring and gluing is from Teacher's Friend publications, I did a little looking around for them online, but didn't find them. I have had this a long time and maybe it is not publishing anymore, not sure. Anyone know?
Of course, we had to read
The Polar Express!
Adding cotton balls to any steam train picture makes it a bit more special.
The snowman sequence is from Communication Skill Builders. Again, I have had it in my winter box for a loonnng time and I'm not sure if this particular one can be found anywhere to purchase. When I was hunting for it I did find a 4 part snowman sequence on the Scholastic website.
We had a lot of fun this last week, and I love wearing all my beautiful Christmas sweaters and vests and socks.....and hats....

Link up with Doodle Bugs and
Have a wonderful holiday,
