#89 Christmas Continued -- Card Making!
Continuing on from the gift giving lesson, another great way to use Christmas as a lesson theme is to have the students make cards for each other or home!
First, brainstorm together on the board, some typical things we say in Christmas Cards:
Wishing you a Merry Christmas
Peace and love this holiday season
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Photocopy these cards. Let the students read and choose one card template they like. Students can then color and add their own personal greetings and letter inside. Have all the students include the following sentence,
Thanks for ___________________________!
Monitor and roam, helping students as necessary and checking for understanding of Christmas vocabulary...
Make sure you share the cards at the end! Use these posters to decorate the classroom too! Also, put on some Christmas music too while the students work!
