More Christmas Fun!

This week was our last week before the holidays, so we had to get in the rest of our Christmas activities before break.  This was a fun week.  Check out some of the games we played!  I'll post pics of our Storytelling Festival soon!  Check back.

Our adorable TLC Santa's.  Teacher friends, if you've never heard of TLC, it's a MUST for K teachers!  
Couldn't teach without it!  (or wouldn't want to)

This was probably the most fun game we played this week.  They had to build the chimney's by rolling the die.  I loved how they had to figure out when to stop one chimney and begin building the other ones.
They had to roll each turn, and couldn't put any back in the box once they counted out their cubes.  They had to figure out how many more they needed on each chimney and then what to do with what was left over.  SO MUCH FUN, plus a great learning game!

She has finished the one lying down.


Rectangle trees, but first we had to put them in order from shortest to tallest.  After, we added dots of snow with q-tips.  I forgot to take a picture of the finished product, but they are coming home with your kiddos.

Our first snow day of the school year!

Of course, we had to taste the snow!

We are looking for what's inside the stocking, then finding the letter on our paper to match
the beginning sound.

He found a rat.

Here, we are pulling out an object and finding the letter in the word "Christmas"that matches
the object's beginning sound.  

Here, they had to read the word, and match it to the bottom part of the stocking.
We also have a number word matching to sets stocking game.

They had to count the ornaments on each tree and record the number on a matching color tree.

Here, they measured the presents with blocks.


  1. All I can say is wow! Wish I could be in your classroom. :)

  2. Can you fill me in on what TLC is? I'm not sure which TLC you are referring to from your santa activity. Thanks!!

  3. Miss Whyte,
    TLC is teacher directed art. The books give specific size pieces then the cutting goes from there. The TLC santa's at the very top of the post are from a TLC book. YOu can go to tlclessons.com to learn more about it. TLC stands for teaching little children. I use TLC style art all the time. You should def. order a book and try it. Once you get the hang of it you will catch yourself using TLC just to cut things on your own. Does this make sense?

  4. Love all your ideas!!!!! I'm now going backwards through things I missed...would love a copy if you have time :o)

  5. Can I get a copy of this for my files as well...thank you!
