Letter to Santa Freebie!

The holidays will be here before we blink!  Last year I asked my students to write a letter to Santa.  They were SO serious.  It is the most quiet that they had been in weeks.  The letter to Santa is very serious business!  So, when we return to school on Monday, we will again write our letters to Santa.  I've made a "letter to Santa" writing page for them to use.  I added a few other pages to it and I've put it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store for you FOR FREE!  Here is a look at the pages that you get:

Celebrating Holidays Around the World!

I finally finished my Holidays Around the World Unit.  I can't wait to use it with my students.  It is a two week unit and covers ELA standards and Social Studies standards.  There are reading passages AND QR codes too!  There is also an ornament craft to make with each of the 8 countries. It is 74 pages of easy, fun December-ness!   Here is a look at some of the pages of  the finished unit.
This unit looks at Australia, Mexico, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Hanukkah and England.  To see a longer preview, click HERE to go to my store.  I love it when things serve two purposes.  This unit teaches our students about what Christmas is like in other countries and in other cultures.  That is the great part.  The awesome part is this:  I have decided to let the ornaments that the students make become the Christmas gift for their parents!  I even included a gift envelope pattern in the unit.  So there you go.  Two weeks of reading/social studies planned AND parents present taken care of!  What more could you need!!!  I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!  Christmas, here we come!

Fall Writing and Fall Math Freebies!

The hallway display can cause I the only one who thinks this?  At the beginning of school, I sent a poster home for my students to complete.  It was an "All About Me" kind of poster.  So they did the work at home and brought it back.  Bam....instant hallway display.  We all know how busy the beginning of school I think the next time I even thought about the hallway, it was already into October.  So, that ruled out making anything about Halloween, because I know me...and I would have left it up way into Thanksgiving time.  So I thought about it and came up with a Fall writing activity and a Fall math activity.  Voila!  These can take me all the way to December!  I don't know about you, but I'm all for easy.  Here is how they turned out:

For writing, students listed "The Top 10 Things I Love About Fall."  For math, students rolled 3 number cubes to get a 3 digit number.  Then, they show the number  in standard form, with base 10 blocks, expanded form, word form, + 10, + 100, -10, -100,  and tell if it's odd or even. These activities were fun for the kids and turned out so cute!  I've put them in my Teachers Pay Teachers store for free for you!  Click HERE to go to my store to get your FREE copy!  If you download, please leave some comments and let me know how you like it!  Happy Fall Ya'll!
