Holiday Cheer

Like Sister 2 said, Christmas is our favorite holiday! We have so many holiday craftivities underway that I thought I would pop in and share a few.

Last week we really focused on synonyms and antonyms.  We used our Scholastic Children's Thesaurus (a MUST have!) to find synonyms for commonly used words. 


The kids were able to pick any word from the thesaurus to write on their stocking. Check out how cute they turned out!


Then we brainstormed a huge list of antonyms on the Smart Board (another MUST have!).  The students created antler antonyms.  I'll let you in on one of our little secrets... all you need are your hands and feet to create this darling craftivity. 
    

These two activities can be found in our Hopping Through the Holidays pack.

By the way... What do you think of our new look?!?
