This week we are starting to work on our Christmas senses project! I love Christmas and can't wait to start working on Christmas vocabulary projects. This project evokes the five senses of Christmas. Each day we do a brainstorm about the things that evoke one of the five senses and record it on it's own sheet.
These are just a few of the fabulous pages that my students created for me last year! I can't wait to see what this year's group comes up with!
We made Christmas lights house for the covers.
I pre-cut the house shapes and the tree. I pre-cut the window slits and let them cut open the fold. and fold the windows open. We glued little pieces of white paper to the back of the house shape. Then the children drew pictures about their house in each of the window. I asked them to make sure to fill the window space. We had them put their family in one window, a tree in the other window, and their choice for the final window.
The children then came a few at a time to add little drops of glue from a white glue bottle to make the "Christmas lights". They also decorated the tree in front of the house. Then I sprinkled glitter all over it, shook off the glue and had a great time watching their faces when they see the final result! Very, very popular activity with my students.
I put the projects on a background of snow and then they really pop!
You can find all the parts to this project and more in my Christmas Fun package in my Teachers Pay Teachers Store!
I have posted about some of the other projects in this package on this blog here and here! Please take a look! We had fun!
This was a very popular project last year and made a wonderful keepsake! It is really cool to find out what the children's ideas are for the sights and sounds of Christmas! Very heartwarming!
I have used this project to help decorate my door for our annual Christmas Door Decorating project!
I love Christmas!
