Teaching Tip: Make Christmas Art



This is the result of the Christmas writing project I blogged about a few days ago.

The children made their presents out of construction paper.

They wrote one word about themselves. Now it’s our turn.

We will add positive words to the presents as the days pass by in December, each word describing a gift that the artist possesses.

The fifth graders across the hall even asked if they could write good things on the packages.

Stay merry!

I write. Make art. And in between, I do the best I can. ✌🏼️

  1. I’d love to see what they’ve written when it’s done.
    I don’t know if I asked this before but what grade do you teach?

    • Thank you! I will make a point to post the finished board in almost three weeks. I teach fourth grade. 🙂

      • My cousin teaches second or third (she’s moved them at least once) grade. My father was her Uncle George, a character in himself. she would often tell stories about him and the kids grew to love this funny guy they never met. When he got kidney cancer she stopped talking about him (not intentionally she didn’t even realize it at first). the kids started asking about him and she told them he was sick. THEY decided to make him get well cards. They were wonderful and put some life in my father for a bit. When he finished that round of chemo and regained his strength he even went to visit them. they all called him Uncle George.

      • That is beautiful! Kids always seem to know what to do.
