Christmas Tree Theme Day

Are you trying to find a way to keep your students engaged and learning with all of the holiday excitement? Themed days may be just for you. During Christmas Tree Theme Day, you can read your choice of suggested tree stories and complete the reading comprehension activities included. There is a letter to send home, a banner, craft activities, a STEM challenge, and more. You could run centers for the day or complete the activities together. The choices are endless. There is a tree house, build a tree activity, writing activities, an original poem with extensions, an original non-fiction book on evergreen trees with extensions, math games, phonics scoot, and loads of word work extensions.  With all that is included, this could be used for more than one day!
