It’s that fun time of the year where it’s getting serious because it’s near the end of the semester, but difficult to be serious because holidays and vacations are quickly approaching. Some students have work to finish, while others completed the entire semester in October. And the more exhausted teachers feel, the more energy the students seem to have. In anticipation of all of this, I’ve been working on my December collection of resources, which you can find here. It includes links to wintery activities, as well as specific holidays (Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa). There are lesson ideas, puzzles and games, and arts and crafts. Just a few things you will find are:
- 12 Games of Christmas Scratch Project beginning Dec. 1st
- 12 Days of Making Choice Board or Holiday Choice Board
- Lego Ornament Challenge (This one is from last year; I will update if I see a link for this year)
- Digital Breakouts like this Sneaky Snow Catcher one
- Hour of Code 2021
If you look at the collection on a computer screen (instead of on your phone), you will see that I divided the resources into columns this year to make it a bit easier to find things.
Sometimes you just need to do something silly and non-curriculum-related, so I also made another collection that I’ve creatively named, “Fun Stuff,” with links to things like Google’s Blob Opera, a Rebus Generator, and Google’s Quick Draw.
And don’t forget I have a set of Brainteasers and Puzzles that also might do when you are looking for something to fill in some extra time.
You can see all of my public Wakelet collections here. Hopefully you will find a resource or two to help you make it through December!
