I am so excited about the next product for my Teachers Pay Teachers store.  After the (relative- *I* was impressed at how well it did) success of my Thanksgiving unit, I decided to try my hand at Christmas unit that was full of fluffy fun, but not pure fluff. Did that make you cock your head in confusion?



I am super excited about this unit because it covers the standards I need to hit before Christmas, but has lots of Christmas crafty goodness! I have matched up the standards for Common Core and the Georgia Performance Standards for 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades.  Since I have taught all of those grade levels, I would feel comfortable using the unit in each grades, as it.  I do feel like all the activities would be appropriate and standards based for all these grade levels.

This 8 day unit covers synonyms, antonyms, character analysis, decoding words, prefixes, roots and suffixes. I really wanted to stick in homophones and homographs, but I wanted to keep the unit short and we had already done these in my classroom.   It includes activities such as a Grinch craft, a Christmas wreath craft, a Christmas tree craft and a snowman game.

To celebrate its very near release, I will be doing a GIVEAWAY!!!!!

One lucky winner will win:

  • one free copy of the unit
  • one $15 gift card to Amazon!!

There are THREE ways to enter the contest:

  1. Leave a comment saying you follow my blog
  2. Leave a comment saying you follow my Teachers Pay Teachers store
  3. Blog about the contest on your blog!

A winner will be chosen WEDNESDAY, December 7th!  Happy entering!!!!
