Holiday Linky Party!!

It is almost December!!! Yay!! What an exciting time of the year! Can you feel the excitement already in your classroom? We surely can!! My students asked me to play Christmas music today and I told them they had to wait until Monday, let's get through November first. Haha!! I love the Christmas music but am not ready for the wild rumpus to start quite yet!
What is your favorite part of the holiday season?
Join in on the linky fun and see what everyone else is talking about!!
Here are some of our FAVORITE holiday books we read every year with our students.

A Very Marley Christmas (Marley Series)
Who doesn't love this adorable, mischievous dog?
Merry Christmas, Big Hungry Bear!
What do you give a big hungry bear for Christmas?
Here are some of our FAVORITE activities to do during our holiday party!
After making reindeer food, the children make this cute Rudolph bag to store the reindeer food until Christmas Eve!

This one is a lot of fun! Before the children sponge paint the Christmas tree we punch holes all over the tree. After the paint dries, the children turn glue different colors of tissue paper on top of the holes. When you hang it in the window and the sun shines through the holes, it looks like the tree is all lit up! It is so much fun to see the children's faces light up too!

Here are some of our new FAVORITE activities we just put up for sale in our TpT store:

Sounds of the Season is a fun activity for your students to practice identifying the beginning sounds of pictures and placing them on the correct Christmas tree. You can check them out here:
Stockings Hung by the Chimney with Care is another fun activity for your students practice spelling CVC words. Children will look at the picture in the fireplace and then hang the correct stockings to spell the matching word. Look for it here:
Happy Holidays to all of you!!!
