Happy Grinch Day!
Last week, my students were greeted by a BIG, GREEN surprise!
It begin with this discovery…
Uh-Oh! Watch out Candy Man (the rather unfortunate name of this year’s elf)!
I’ve had a lot of fun with Grinch Day in the past, but I had to get rather creative this year.
My students are doing SO well in Guided Reading (we just jumped up TWO reading levels since September!) but we can’t simply stop instruction because of one GREEN character.
SO, I decided to incorporate all the green fun into our reading.
The result was a very Green, GRINCH-y Guided Reading!
We kept many of our same Guided Reading activities, with a very Grinch-y twist!
Here’s just a few of our literacy activities:
Read and Find – pocket chart activities
Red Light, Green Light
Green Screen Slides (Phonemic Awareness and Phonics/Decoding)
Grinch Writing and Mentor Sentences
How the Grinch Stole Christmas Listening Comprehension (of course!)
PLUS many more GREEN details, from all our pencils turning green, green finger lights, sensory bins…
You can see all the fun we had in my most recent YouTube video, or catch the replay on Facebook Live here!
Are you ready to incorporate some GREEN December Day fun into your own literacy groups!
