I am super excited about this unit because it covers the standards I need to hit before Christmas, but has lots of Christmas crafty goodness! I have matched up the standards for Common Core and the Georgia Performance Standards for 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. Since I have taught all of those grade levels, I would feel comfortable using the unit in each grades, as it. I do feel like all the activities would be appropriate and standards based for all these grade levels.
This 8 day unit covers synonyms, antonyms, character analysis, decoding words, prefixes, roots and suffixes. I really wanted to stick in homophones and homographs, but I wanted to keep the unit short and we had already done these in my classroom. It includes activities such as a Grinch craft, a Christmas wreath craft, a Christmas tree craft and a snowman game.
To celebrate its very near release, I will be doing a GIVEAWAY!!!!!
