Jolly Classroom Activities for December

Copy of Rock the blues in style

December is a month full of celebrations! Students are focused on the upcoming Holidays and Traditions they celebrate in their communities and with their families! How does a teacher compete with that kind of excitement? Well, by joining in! Fill your classroom with Educational Holiday Activities to keep your students learning all month long!

For MATH you could graph responses to fun questions, play skill related card games or go on scavenger hunts.

For SCIENCE there are many different experiments and STEM activities you could incorporate into class time:

For LANGUAGE ARTS and SOCIAL STUDIES you can read and write about different winter holidays, compare and contrast elements from holidays and ad in some kindness lessons.

There are SO MANY fun educational activities! Check out my Pinterest Holiday Board for more ideas!

Looking for some Math Games to keep your students engaged during December?

This time of year is a great time to play educational games with your students!  They are thinking about the Holidays and the upcoming break, so games with Holiday themes will be sure to engage them! Here are a few of my favorites:

 

① This division tic tack toe game is a great way for your students to practice division skills while also having fun! Students take turns solving division problems and then finding the answer on the tic tack toe board!

② Your students will love getting out of their seats and solving these equations! The holiday theme makes it more fun!

③ How about this matching game for expanded notation?  This is a skill that students need to practice all year long, so this holiday matching game is a perfect review/practice!
