December Preview


"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"

I'm joining the Blog Hop!  Where teachers can share their plans for Christmas.  Here is a sneak peak of some of the fabulous things we will be doing this December....

NAME RECOGNITION(first and last)

 We will be using this fabulous game...  Students will practice their FINE MOTOR SKILLS by cutting out the letters in his/her name and then hanging them on yarn in the correct order.  We will be hanging these from the ceiling to help decorate our room for Christmas!  You can print these off at home FOR FREE by going to either my Teachers Pay Teachers Store or to Teachers Notebook!  These are a great way to help them learn to write their name.  Children can not be expected to independently write their names until they can recognize it! :)  Remember...Always let the children see and write their name with a  Capital letter followed by ALL lowercase letters. (i.e. John  not JOHN!)  This also helps with letter recognition!


We will also be playing fun hide and seek games with these colorful bulbs.  Searching for certain letters.


We will be cutting and writing all month to help develop our strength.  These skills are essential to success in kindergarten and beyond.  Our Santa Countdown will help reinforce these skills at home!

This is also from my TPT and TN stores.


The letters we will be focusing on this month are P F J.

We will kick off the month with a Polar Express Pajama Party!  YAY!  So fun and snuggly!  We will SNEAK in learning by using some of the games in this darling Polar Express Kit I purchased on Teachers Notebook by LittleAdventuresPreschool.

We will also be bringing home beginning readers that the children will be "writing" by filling in the blank.  this will be part of our Write the Room with the Gingerbread man!  This unit has an adorable beginning reader with the site/dolch words Can, A, See, I.  You can find it HERE or HERE.
Next we are going to decorate our classroom and homes with this adorable Gingerbread Glyph (similar to the monster glyph we did at back to school night).  This will be up on my stores soon!  So check back!

We will also be mastering the following skills by using by Christmas Math and Literacy Bundle. (TPT & TN) Each game below can be purchased separately or at a discount in a bundle.

We will also be Rockin' and Celebrating with Pete the Cat!  Our favorite class book is Pete the Cat and his New Shoes.  Well, this week the kids eyes will be filled with wonder when we read...drum roll please...
Pete the Cat Saves Christmas
YAY PETE!  WAY TO SAVE CHRISTMAS!  (Goes great with our letter P too!) :)


Parent Christmas gifts...If you want to be surprised...Close your eyes!
We will be doing a version of this cute ornament that I found on pinterest.
Salt Dough Decorations: Part 2

Hmmm...There is a ton more things we will be doing.  This is just a sneak peak!  Welcome to a glimpse of ABC School and Merry Christmas!

P.S.  Remember that all my items on my Teachers Pay Teachers and Teachers Notebook Shop will be up to 28%-30% off through Tuesday.  Please help us spread the word...maybe we can earn enough for those new chairs yet!  ;D
