I'm so excited to be hopping on board this Christmas Blog Hop for Secondary Teachers! Thanks to Faulkner's Fast Five and The Language Arts Classroom for hosting!
Holiday Fast Five
One Thing On My Bucket List for the Holidays - I am determined to learn how to knit... it seems like everyone around me is knitting up wonderful scarves and hats and I'd love to join in the fun. I'm hoping my mother in law will show me the basics over the break. However, I think I may have two left thumbs...
One Special Tradition - We cheat and open a present on Christmas Eve... but it's so much fun!
One Gift Idea - I love to give homemade gifts and this year I'm going to make spiced nuts. So yummy, so easy, and so easy to put into a cellophane bag tied up with a pretty ribbon.
One Activity for the Classroom - I have read "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" aloud to my ELA classes (yes, even my seniors!!) over the last few years and they love it! Some great discussions about memories, the message of Christmas, commercialization and more always follow.
One Freebie - Here's a fun and easy to use writing prompt using Winter themed words. Use it as a story starter, poetry starter, inspiration to make their own and more! Just click the image below to grab a FREE copy!
Wishing you all the best this holiday season!
