December Craft & Coloring Journals: Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah
As you explore writing with your kindergarten class, students color, cut, and glue craft pieces into their journals to go along with December themes! Three writing choices provide you with differentiation options for students. Themes include the following: Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah.
Print the cover and writing sheet of your choice. (A monthly cover is included as well, in case you prefer to do a compilation of monthly themes instead of thematic journals for each topic.) Copy the number of writing sheets you’ll need for the theme. Then copy the cover and writing sheets, double stapled, for each student. Print the craft pieces, and students store them in a gallon-size Ziplock bag at school. Throughout your theme, write about the thematic craft pieces. You might guide your students with what to write about each day during your writing lesson, or they might write on their own during center time. Students cut around the outside edges of the craft pieces and glue them into their journals. Then they add their own drawings to complete their pictures! Send journals home to share with families at the end of each theme! The kids love to share their hard work as they tell parents about what they’ve learned, and families love to watch writing skills grow throughout the school year! These journals are perfect for starting conversations about learning material at home!
