I just couldn't pass up a chance to link up with the sweet gals from Freebielicious. All freebies...all the time. Plus, some of THE sweetest chicks in the "blogosphere" contributing to that site. Seriously.
What's not to love?
I posted a five senses poem about FALL a couple months ago and since then, I've had lots of requests for more of them.
I've done a Christmas one in the past that always turns out soooo stinkin' cute. They
always usually make my heart happy!
Some examples of ideas my first graders have come up with in the past...
Christmas sounds like...jingle bells, Christmas carols, laughing, Ho Ho Ho
Christmas tastes like...candy canes, hot chocolate, pancakes, sugar cookies
Christmas looks like...snow, red and green, bright lights, fun, family, presents, ornaments
Christmas smells like...a fire burning, pine trees, peppermint, cookies baking
Christmas feels like...slippery wrapping paper, love, fun, happiness
and my all time favorite...
"Christmas feels like hugs."
The "feels like" one is often the hardest for them to come up with...I tell them it can be a feeling on the inside or the outside. In other words, something you actually touch with your hands OR something you feel in your heart.
I hope you enjoy doing this with your kids as much as I do. :)
I also whipped up a "Winter" one in case you don't do Christmas activities at your school...or if you're like me and are trying desperately to fit everything in before break and just run out of time!
Happy teaching to you!
