Grinch Day

Tomorrow we will be seeing {and wearing} green!  We’ve got lots of fun activities planned for our kiddos that all center around the book How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss.

For those of you that have a Grinch day planned, too . . . here are few freebies just for you.

The first one is a problem solving book.  Students will cut out the Grinch themed word problems and glue them in their booklet.  Then they will draw a picture and write either an addition or subtraction number sentence to solve each problem.  imageclick {here} to download a copy

We also have a very simple 11x17 writing page that you can have your students use to write complete sentences about what the Grinch was like at the beginning of the story and at the end of the story.

We will be using it as a follow up writing activity after we brainstorm a list of describing words that tell about the Grinch.  This is a little {sneak} peek at the ones we created last year.  We will encourage students to incorporate these words into their super sentences.clip_image004

  3. I love the problem solving! Our school wants us to teach the students a new math problem solving skill every month so this will be perfect!

  5. I created a comprehension sheet and venn diagram for the grinch, too. I teach 3rd, so it's more geared toward that. I can email it to anyone interested!
