Here’s a quick, easy & fun Christmas ornament that helps reinforce your students’ names, letter recognition, vowel identification, capitalization, graphing, counting and addition!
This would be a wonderful center on the last day before vacation, or a special “craftivity” to do for your Christmas party day. For a sweet keepsake, laminate your students completed projects. Add a photograph to make them even more special.
For some math fun, I’ve included two point value charts, so your students can practice a bit of addition,
by adding up the point value of their letters. There’s an ornament
worksheet to record other data as well. Use the higher point value
poster for older students. You could have them figure out the place value of their name using this grand total.
There are also several 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.
