Merry Christmas

Thanks for the opportunity to speak at today’s staff meeting.  Here are the links to the resources I mentioned.

 

 

This is the link for a writing lesson using bought Christmas Cards as the prompt.http://www.successlink.org/GTI/lesson_unit-viewer.asp?lid=3013

A nice activity which links art with maths.  Students have a ‘budget’ with which to purchase materials to make an angel.  Simple maths involved would suit juniors.  http://www.successlink.org/GTI/lesson_unit-viewer.asp?lid=3823

A worksheet of simple maths sums, which serve to help with working out the code for Christmas jokes.http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/other/docs/christmas_jokes.doc

A neat little problem solving activity for middle and upper primary.  Students have to choose a menu for the wise men based on certain conditions. http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/other/pdfs/Christmas_cafe_problem.pdf

Listening skills, oral language activitity.  Students follow set instructions to decorate the Christmas treehttp://www.primaryresources.co.uk/other/docs/Christmas_Tree_Thinking_Skills.doc

Great questions based on the Twelve days of Christmas, creating snowflakes, and activity based on area and perimeterhttp://www.primaryresources.co.uk/topic/pdfs/Christ-Maths.pdf

Great open ended maths activity using maths addition skills to make codes for Christmas words.http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/other/pdfs/cracker.pdf

A powerpoint template of an advent calender.  You could get students to design their own page which could be revealed in the countdown to Christmas.http://www.primaryresources.co.uk/other/powerpoint/adventcalendar_template.ppt

Bright students love jokes.  Here’s a good page.http://www.woodlands-junior.kent.sch.uk/customs/Xmas/santajokes.htm

Upper primary activity which nicely links Pascal’s Triangle with “The Twelve Days of Christmas”.  Hard, but worthwhile.http://dimacs.rutgers.edu/~judyann/LP/lessons/12.days.pascal.html

 

Picture puzzles of well know Christmas song titles.  http://www.santalady.com/xmasgame/xmassong.html
