Holly Jolly Christmas Centers

We just posted our brand new set of Holly Jolly Math & Literacy Centers over on TpT.  

Here’s a little {sneak} peek . . .clip_image037

We hope everyone is having a GREAT week so far.  Thanks to a clever idea {Diane} had our kids are behaving better than ever. 

Want to know the secret . . .

Every year we make headbands during our Native American unit.  This year we are letting the kids earn feathers to add to their headband for positive behavior.  At the end of the week we will see who has the most feathers and they will be named our class “Chief”. 

The kids are all super motivated to earn feathers so we may end up with a whole classroom full of Chiefs!!!




  1. yay! I am using your THanksgiving one right now, and my kids love it! I've got your christmas one in my cart :)

  2. We did the same thing with our feathers and it really did help calm the kids during a crazy week (we had parent Thanksgiving feast, which always gets them hyper plus a fire drill and bomb drill!)

  3. Love your Pilgrims & Indians centers and your Turkey centers!!! I am using them this week and next week. Can't wait to use these!!

  4. I just downloaded the Holly Jolly Unit! It's absolutely amazing!!! I am SuPeR jealous of your creativity! Again, thanks so much for sending it to thoughtful of you and I'm so appreciative!!!

    I look forward to your units because I know they are going to be wonderful!!!

    Thanks again!

  5. Ok... It's been a week and the feathers are still working. Best idea ever!!!

    Thanks so much for the positive comments about our new set of centers. We are excited to use them in a few weeks,too!!!
