‘Twas the Night Before Christmas- I Have Who Has {Freebie} from Created by MrHughes on Teachers Pay Teachers
Freebie Friday - Christmas Activities
Who hasn’t heard the classic poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas” by Clement C. Moore?

This fun and interactive activity will have your students begging to play again and again as they try to beat their best time by reading fluently and more quickly each time.

The poem has been divided into 28 cards in an “I have, Who Has” fashion. Students will have to listen carefully as they only get the 3 or 4 words in the poem ahead of their lines. I have also listed several alternate ways to enjoy the included cards.

I used this activity for over ten years in my classroom, and my students loved it every year. I am offering it as a free resource as my Holiday gift to you! Happy Holidays!

The Christmas season is the perfect time to reinforce acts of kindness with children. This activity prompts children to participate in a different act of kindness each day while trimming off Santa’s long beard.

This kit provides a “ready-to-print” version with both color and black and white.

Also included is an editable version (Power Point format) if you prefer to create your own kindness jobs that are specific to your classroom or family.
Just print your own text in the blank spaces and choose your font, size and color.

Five Little Reindeer – Christmas Emergent Reader for Students from Learn a Latte on Teachers Pay Teachers
Freebie Friday - Christmas Activities
Check out this FREE emergent reader. My students love the poem, “Five Little Pumpkins,” so I created this Christmas version, Five Little Reindeer. With my prekinders and kindergarten students, we read this book together for shared reading several times, using the larger color copy available in my Five Little Reindeer – Christmas Math & Literacy Fun set. We point out the sight words we know, talk about how the text matches the pictures and how we can use the pictures to help us figure out unfamiliar words, practice reading fluently, act out the story with students pretending to be the reindeer, and do lots of fun reindeer activities. We also use the book for guided reading in small groups. After reading the book several times together, the students color the black and white copies and practice reading their books together and independently. By this point, they are very familiar with the text and love reading it all by themselves! 🙂

Please check out my Christmas sets, Five Little Reinder – Christmas Math & Literacy Fun. This set includes a larger color copy of the Five Little Reindeer book with high quality graphics and LOTS of great reindeer math and literacy activities including color words, number words, sight words, counting sets, writing numbers, a reindeer glyph and much more! I also have a new Christmas set, Christmas Literacy Centers & Activities, that provides student practice with syllables, rhyming, beginning sounds, and short vowels.
