Let the Winter Break Countdown Begin! Freebies, Osbert, and RACK Sacks

Here we go!  Three weeks baby!

I'm currently mentally preparing myself for the weeks ahead (so much to do!) and starting my look for fun new freebies and/or holiday activities.  If you're in the same boat, here are a few from me.

First, four holiday printables including a holiday tree dot game, Santa's flight path geography, holiday word work and letter writing paper.

Second, in case you're in the  "I NEED 30 GIFTS for ZERO DOLLARS" mode, use these editable coupons.  My students always love sitting in my chair or bringing a stuffed animal to class for a day and they don't cost me a thing.

Looking for a great read aloud?  This one is my holiday favorite!  The pictures are beautiful and the story is so sweet.  You can even use it as a mentor text and do a quickwrite about gift stories (birthdays, holidays, etc.) if you're thinking of actually teaching next week.  :)
Lastly,  if you're thinking of doing RACK (Random Acts of Classroom Kindness), think about making RACK Sacks.  We use these like stockings.  Students write letters or compliments for classmates, teachers deliver them to RACK Sacks and the kids get to open these on the last day before the break.

Have a great three weeks and happy countdown time!
