Help me give my students the gift of The 12 Days of Christmas in our classroom through reading, talking, and experiencing the holiday spirit.
This year my students are very special to me as some of them had me for their second grade teacher as well! I have been gifted a class that works hard, likes to have fun and cares deeply for others. As sixth graders, my students are the leaders of the school and are striving everyday to prepare for middle school next year.
My class is has a wide variety of personalities, backgrounds and passions which drive them each day.
I love that they share so many parts of themselves with me regarding activities in school as well as out of school. It has really enabled me and my class to build a strong relationship so far this year!
Students tend to drag during the holidays. This can be due to the upcoming break that we all look forward to so much, the dreary winter weather outside and many other variables.
I want to keep my sixth graders engaged throughout the month of December through reading, talking, and experiencing different elements of the holiday season with The 12 Days of Christmas.
The books selected here in this project allow students to read and hold book club discussions throughout the unit and give a deeper meaning to the lessons. This is a three week long activity and each day highlights something new and brings some fun to the everyday math, reading and writing tasks. We rarely have time in 6th grade to read aloud for fun, and this project serves to do both!
