My Favorite Holiday Activity

Click image to download Nutcracker freebie.
Ever have one of those activities that's a win-win?  It's something that works so well, you keep bringing it back year after year.

That's how I feel about this one, Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker.  I've done this activity with second graders for about 15 years now.

Every year, the children have loved this activity, and it practices some valuable skills:  visualizing, summarizing, and sequencing.  Plus, it gives them some exposure to classic holiday literature and classical music!

Come on over to Elementary Matters to enjoy this freebie!  It's one of my favorites!

Finding something like this is very rare! And I’m pretty sure that the writer and admin must be really proud that the blog post gets tons and tons of replies. And I was fascinated by the delivery the blogs. I’m a beginning blogger and I could say this really helps.
