Deck the Halls!

Last Thursday we had our annual Math Night at school so decking the halls with Christmas was definitely in order! 

In math we have been working with numbers so to add a holiday touch to our learning we made a NUMBER TREE FARM!

I wrote several numbers on sticky notes and put them on the board. My students had to pick a sticky note off the board, take it back to their seat, and complete their number tree using that number. 
I didn't realize until later that this tree is missing the number in standard form on the star. 

In reading, we MADE STORIES BRIGHT by retelling the book How Santa Got His Job. 

This book is absolutely adorable! You can find it here
After reading it, we used these cards and summarized the story with beginning, middle, and end. 

You can find both of the crafts above in my Deck the Halls pack here

Have y'all watched the movie Elf? Oh my Larry it is one of my favorites! When I saw Katie Mense's Elf Yourself pack I knew I had to incorporate it with my Elf door. 
I added a writing prompt to our elves to go along with one of Buddy's famous quotes...."Smiling is my favorite". 
You can download the writing prompt here

Happy Monday friends!
