New Year-themed Telling Time Emergent Reader

Since the New Year revolves around time, I thought it would be interesting to design an emergent reader that takes a child from noon, on New Year's Eve, to ringing in the New Year at Midnight. 

Children trace and write the digital time to the hour + draw the appropriate hands on the analog clock.  

The story ends with a writing prompt about what children did on New Year's Day and how they celebrated.

This internet scavenger hunt comes with three possible options. 

Option 1:  Post the scavenger hunt on a password protected site – like Edmodo – and let the kids download it and move the pictures around by clicking and dragging.

Option 2:  Post the scavenger hunt on a password protected site – like Edmodo, but print the scavenger hunt and let the kids cut and paste the pictures in the sort.

Option 3:  Print the QR code version and let students scan each QR code with an iPad or tablet.  Then, let the kids cut and paste the pictures in the sort.

Whatever option you choose, students will explore websites to find out information about producers and consumers.  Download all 3 options of this Producers and Consumers Primary Grades Internet Scavenger Hunt for free from my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

New Year ABC Booklet

Get a jump start on the New Year with this cute emergent reader, and review upper & lowercase letters, as well as build vocabulary at the same time.  

You can make one for each student, so they can trace and write the words, or you can simply make a teacher's copy and share a page a day for the first week back after break. 

As you read the booklet, have students shoot up their hand if you come to a word that they are unfamiliar with, and then take a moment to define it. Discuss the words and what they mean.  See if they can come up with anymore and add them to the list.
 
For individual practice have children write that day's words in their writing journals or student-made dictionaries. This makes a wonderful Daily 5 word work activity too.

Let's Trim The Tree Cent-sationally!

Here's a quick, easy & fun game perfect for a December math activity, or your Christmas party day.

The "Trim the Tree" game helps reinforce coins (penny, nickel, dime & quarter).

Each student gets a set of coins to color and cut out, then they pick a partner and take turns rolling the dice four times.

Their 1st roll equals how many penny ornaments they will glue to their tree, the 2nd roll is for nickels and so on. Older students can total up the value of their coins and write that amount on the tree trunk or star.

To practice more math, as well as review color words, worksheets are provided.  There are several options for different levels of study.

I've also included completed samples to help clarify things.

The coin anchor charts, are a great way to introduce the coins, review and refer to.

Gingerbread On The Loose Class Book Ed-venture

I really enjoyed designing this gingerbread writing and activity packet and hope you have a lot of fun with your kiddos doing these interesting activities.  This is the perfect packet, for that last day before vacation, when everyone is especially "energetic".

Before hand, put up the wanted posters in your room.  Run off the masters and put the notes, signs and clues in a variety of places in your school: cafeteria, library, office, gym etc.  Get your principal, secretary, cafeteria staff etc. in on your adventure and give them a clue card.



After reading the original gingerbread man story, tell your students that you are going on an "ed-venture".  Explain that the gingerbread man is on the loose in their school and that their job is to find clues to hopefully discover his where abouts.


The last clue leads everyone back to your classroom, where they find a note from the gingerbread man.   (While you are gone, have a helper lay out gingerbread or cookie treats, as a special surprise snack. )

Have them take a bite of their cookie, and then graph the results.  I've also included an "I like, or I don't like the taste of gingerbread." graph.

For writing practice, I've included a class book, where each student contributes a page about the adventure.  There are templates for students to do this separately or in a group.

There's also a graphic organizer where students name their own personal gingerbread man, then draw and describe him. (Great practice for using adjectives.)

Click on the link to pop on over to my blog to grab your copy of the Gingerbread On The Loose packet. Let the adventure begin!

A Sweet Tweet For Santa Writing Prompt

A Sweet Tweet For Santa, is an interesting and fun way for students to practice writing.

Students color, cut and glue the bird to the top of their writing prompt paper, then each day (for 10 days) they jot down (tweet) something sweet that they've done, that Santa might be interested in knowing.

Remind them to use proper spacing, capitalization and end punctuation.  I've included a completed sample for you to share with your students.
