Sunday Scoop {12/14/14} with a Freebie!

It's time to link up with Teaching Trio again for The Sunday Scoop!

There's something about looking at only four more days before the holiday break that makes me feel quite a range of feelings. Part of me says, "Do I really have four MORE days? It feels like this holiday is taking FOREVER to get here!" And another part of me says, "Wait! What? Only four more days? There's so much more I wanted to do with my students this month!" But mostly I'm saying, "How the heck am I going to keep these Christmas-crazed kiddos engaged and even somewhat focused on learning and staying off the "naughty" list during these next four days??"

One of the tricks up my sleeve is winter-themed read-alouds. Plenty of them. One of my favorites is this one:

Also, these holiday kindness cards.

What do you have planned for this last week? I'd love to hear about it!


  1. I have FIVE more days! Thankfully, our principal has planned lots of fun things for us to do on Friday. The children were already so excited last week. Good luck to all of us. Lol!
