Christmas time with kindergarteners is such an exciting time! I love their innocence and excitement as they wait patiently for Christmas Eve to finally arrive in hopes that Saint Nicholas will soon be there.
One of my all time favorite activities is getting a personalized video by email from Santa for each individual student! Visit http://www.portablenorthpole.com/home to enter your students' names, age, where they live, and 1 item from their wish list. It even gives the option to put them on the Naughty or Nice list! We do 2 videos a day so that each child gets their video message before we get out for Christmas break. They get so excited waiting to see who the special message will be for each day. So much fun!
As we finish up our unit on number words, I pull out the paint and Q-tips and we Trim the Trees by reading the number and color words. If you are on the "Nice List" you can click on the picture below to snag your free copy now!
