Christmas Literacy Center Ideas | Make Take & Teach

Christmas Literacy Center Ideas

Only two more weeks until Christmas!  This school year is just flying by.  I woke up this morning to a light dusting of snow in our backyard.  Living in Northern  Michigan, we can almost count on having snow for Christmas.  I will have to say, though, that it’s a little late coming this year.  Usually by now we’ve had at least one snow day and the ski resorts typically open Thanksgiving day.   Well the snow has certainly put me in the holiday spirit.

You still have a little time to put together a few holiday-themed activities.  I picked up these gift tags at Walmart and thought they’d make for a quick and easy literacy center activity for practicing beginning sounds.

There were several gift tag options.  I almost chose the snowmen–they were so adorable!  Each package contains 16 game tags.  I simply cut each tag down the center so that only the front of the tag is used.  You could use the back of the tag, too, as a separate card if you wish.  If you only want to use the pictured side, you will need 3 packages of gift tags for the complete alphabet set.  Purchase 2 packages if you’re choosing to use the card back.

Simply print the following pdf on a full sized Avery label and cut out the letters and pictures.  Adhere a letter or picture to each tag.

These seasonal boxes are intended to be used for gift cards.  They make such a cute box for storing the activity.  They can be found right under the gift tags.
