Happy (almost) holidays, my friends. Have you noticed an excitement in the air? My students definitely have the Christmas Spirit, and are always thrilled to have some fun seasonal activities do to recognize it!
I am happy to have some quiet (yet fun) activities to do with them to maintain a sense of calm and structure amidst all of the excitement! (Who’s kidding who – I need to bring myself down to reality!)
I run Early Literacy Intervention groups with students from grades 1-3. While we do guided reading and writing, and play skill-building games, once in a while I do like to have them do some worksheets that I can send home and keep a copy of in their files. We are currently working through both of the Christmas themed Read and Write and More sets, and they are enthusiastic with the variety of activities at their ‘just-right’ level, too.
The kids are having a lot of fun with these, thanks to the wonderful clip art by Edu-clips.com. Here are examples of some of the activities we have been doing:
We will also be practicing hearing the sounds in words using Elkonin sound boxes. These are another activity we practice regularly, and I find it very helpful to have practice sheets prepared at various levels of difficulty when we practice as a group. It is for this reason that I include differentiated sound box practice sheets in each Read and Write and More set.

Each of these packages come with a tip sheet, a three part graphic organizer, and other seasonal writing materials. Be sure to check out the links to bundles if you are considering purchasing more than one item, as there are savings there!
Best wishes to all of you for the holiday season, and thank you so much for following.
