Multiple Christmas Trees

So it's late again and I can't sleep so I decided to write a quickie on my dearly neglected blog.  It's report card time here so as you know...I've been a "little" busy.  If you haven't picked up my new Persuasive Writing Craftivity....Don't Eat the are not too late.

This is the sign your Gingerbread Craftivity holds.

 This is the perfect writing idea for the week before winter break and it also includes a craftivity...which is so cute.  My students aren't quite there yet on their writing so I'll post pictures as we go along. 

Currently in my class we are doing a lot of different Christmas Units.....YaY for TpT Sale!  I will show you my purchased units tomorrow.  We did do Multiple Christmas Trees yesterday.  I gave the students some tree templates copied on green construction paper.  I then used the good ole die cutter to make stars for each student with a number from 2-9 on each one.  That was to be their multiple (which we made an anchor chart for (Sorry...forgot to take a picture of this).  Their next direction was to make ornaments with a number written on it that was the multiple of their star on top of their tree.  This easy activity really taught them a lot about multiples and helped me pull a group of kids who weren't "getting it".

  2. Hey Stephanie,
    I really miss doing Christmas...we can't really do it because of our diverse population of students. No Christmas trees, Santas or even reindeer. Gingerbread is okay I think. We are knee-deep into realistic fiction right now, but I love your Gingerbread Persuasive writing activity...I hope it is selling well for you.
