I don't know about you, but my TPT wish list is long and I've been waiting for this time of year to save BIG on some things I've had my eye on. For 4 days, you can save 20% on items in my TPT store. One of my best sellers is SANTA SCIENCE. This set includes 5 Santa-Inspired hands-on science investigations children love. It's a great way to have some educational holiday-fun during that last week before Christmas break. Check it out... it's on sale, too!
Science lesson plans... check!
Here are a few other Christmas items that are on sale, too. MAKING WORDS with CHRISTMAS WORDS includes 5 complete phonics lessons inspired by the holiday. In the download you'll find suggested word lists, teacher word cards, student letter tiles, and sorting sheets for each lesson. Children will have fun (and you can feel good about word work standards) as they make new words using the letters in: stockings, presents, ornaments, reindeer, and mistletoe... one word for each day of the week.

And here's a simple, little math game for K-1 kids... COUNTING with SANTA. It's a classic "concentration" game where children take turns matching the number to the value (either with fingers or with tens frames... you decide). Want to differentiate and make it a bit harder? Use only the tens frames and finger cards. Or, even trickier, use all three. It just depends on the level of your students at the time.
Many, many teachers will be participating in this sale event. You're sure to find something you love to make your teaching life easier and fun. Happy holidays and...
Happy shopping! :)
